Lib Tech Magic Horse Power NAS or line 115 prophet's

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi All

 

Any real life comparisons would be helpful, I'm considering buying Lib Tech Magic Horse Power NAS or line 115 prophet's I'm 6'3 200 lbs fit and can ski. I try to be in the powder most of the time, but unfortunately its not always available where I ski.

 

 

Thanks

They are both new, right?  I am guessing you will only be able to find the standard ski magazing fluff reviews.  I would go with the P115s based on graphics alone.  These Lib Techs are gawdawful.  What makes you interested in those two skis in particular?  There are lots of rocker hybrid skis to choose from.

King,

Ask us to at least compare ski's that are somewhat similar.

Hi ecimmortal

 

your knowledge is obviously much more than mine but I have read a few descriptions of these ski and they sound somewhat similar, Line say about the prophet 115:

 

 

Prophet 115 Description

Floats like a pow ski, rips like a carving ski

 

and lib tech say about the magic horse power NAS:

....Magne traction all-terrain shape that rips the hardpack and floats in the pow in both directions.

 

now to me, these seem at least similar in target, so what I was asking was, does anyone have any real world knowledge? if you do, please let me know.

Hi hiplainsdrifter

 

I'm looking at these two because of a couple of suggestions form people who should know, but I'm not sure about their respective impartiality, so i thought I might be able to get a few comments on here.

Libs are the best!!! i have never ridden the Line 115s but i do know you can't go wrong with NAS or magne-traction. they are buttery smooth and track like a mo-fo. light, and they pop. The one thing i will say is that you have to actively ride them at all times. i have never met anyone who didn't love these skis!! not to mention some of the sickest graphics you can get ( in my humble opinion).

That Magic Horsepower has a 100mm Waste while the Prophet is 115mm.  Hardly in the same category as each other.  I would think a better comparison would be the Pow reCurve vs. the Prophet 115?  I've never skied either of them, but I would assume the Prophet is the better Soft snow performer and vice versa for the Magic Horsepower.

Thanks F OCR and N 4 L

 

I've had a look at the Pow reCurve, it seems like it could be for me (not sure about the graphics though)? any one like to comment?

Someone please tell me what advantages i might expect from Lib Tech Magic Horsepower NAS reCurve skis ($898) compared to Lib Tech freeride NAS reCurve skis ($598).

thanks

King, the POW NAS ReCurve is a beast at 117mm but its a really well balanced ski for this size. It's got enough rocker that it skis short and the sidecut engages easily on harder snow.  It rips everywhere! You'll have a blast on it.  I have not gotten to try the Magic Horsepower yet.  I'm hoping to try it in a few weeks. I can't compare it or the Line Prophet 115 becasue I haven't skied either.  But I speak from experience about the Pow ReCurve.  You won't be disappointed.

i now have Lib Tech Freeride NAS 178 cm. i have skied these 5 days, on powder, crud, moguls, hard pack groomers, and ice - plus in a GS course. These skis are absolutely amazing. in case that is not clear enough, i encourage anyone looking for a great all mountain ski to demo these before you buy anything else
