as per size need some imput please:
i'm 5'6", male , aged 48 180lb but aiming for 165 in 1.5 mo... and an aspiriing intermediate.
...I got out 30x last yr (to ski blues/easier blacks) and will get out 35-40x this yr so hope to ramp up my skill set even more esp in off piste/ungroomed...am also doing alot of ski conditioning, too.
I've been offfered an almost new pair of head im monster 78 in a 171 length...(skied 20x, going for $250)
but have been drilled so I'd be paying to have them redrilled for my boot size..(expensive? , so might negotiate a cheaper rate
...i have watea 84 in 167 length (might sell since they're close in size to just bought mythic riders (slightly used) in 172 length (haven't skied yet).......have been told about monster m78 that for this sort of 78 waisted ski (used mostly for local hill, groomers) it's better to go shorter (but haven't found one in that smaller size)...I had older monster im77 in 163 and they were fine but a bit too stiff and was told (and have read) that these newer im78 are more compliant and userfriendly, mid stiff.
watea 84 and mythic rider to be whistler all day ski
thinking monster m78 (or even nordica nitrous to be cypress ski or when things get packed down at whistler)
from ad: "I have Head Monster im 78 skis for sale. They come with Rossi bindings set for a 318 mm sole length. The skis are in great shape with less than 20 days on them
