Which Line Prophet to complement K2 Enemy?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have some older ('02) Enemy skis that I like fairly well (dim 109/75/97), and will likely keep for the park and rocky days, but want to go a bit bigger for occasional powder days, and find something less chattery in crud but diverse enough to do bumps, trees, etc.  Mainly east coast (Ontario, Quebec, Vermont) skiing with occasional trips to Can. Rockies.  I am 5'6", 140lbs, ability in the 7/8 out of 9 range.

 

Based on reviews and cost, I think the Line Prophet series will suit fine, but have a couple of questions.

 

First - 90 or 100?  I am really torn on this one - if there is no real disadvantage on groomers and trees, I'd prob go 100.

 

Second - length.  I was thinking 165, but should I go a little longer on these?

 

Thanks!

bikingfiend13, I had a PE think it was 04 range in 179, This year I got the Line prophet 90 in 179 length. Both 179cm skis "felt" about the same in length to me. You won't get the chattery feel in the crud from the Prophet or as least not nearly as much because 1 it is wider and 2 it has metal in it to stiffen it up compared to a PE. I feel the P-90 has been bomb proof for me so far as I have used them. Had them in 5-6 " pow and then in the tracked up after it was skied off and they felt powerful. The old PE was a great ski but it would feel noodley to me at the speeds and turn shapes I was running thru the Prophets on. I'm 6' 205lbs I ski hard and I like the 179 length.

 

Have not had a chance to really get some moguls with them, I believe they will do pretty good but probably not absorb the bumps as well as the softer PE's do but Prophets hard pack/ tracked up powder performance far outshines the PE. As to which width, I have not skied the 100's, for turn quickness the smaller the better for getting on edge to arc or carve but if you are pivoting turns more than arcing I don't think it will really make a difference as to width. Probably wider would be even more stable in the tracked off crud once you get them up on edge. The Prophet Flite series is the same ski but without the metal in it.
