Salomon Lord vs Line Prophet 90 - need help choosing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

I am shopping for a new pair of skis.

Mostly ski in Lake Tahoe area, 41 y/o, 170lbs, 6ft, moguls, trees, some groomers

Just returned from a trip to Northstar, I demoed there Salomon Fury 177cm and they were OK but somewhat felt dead. They are very fast though.

Then tried Salomon Lord 177cm and just loved them. A lot of fun in trees and moguls, plenty fast. Not that great on icy snow though. 

The only problem is that on the pair I had the laminate was peeling off, so I am concerned about their quality.

I really wanted to demo Line Prophet which I read so many positive reviews about but did not find any rental shop carrying them.

I would greatly appreciate any input on Prophet 90 compared to Lords.

Another thing is the size of Prophet - their web site recommend me 179cm, which seems a bit long. Anyone has any opinion?

Thanks!

I absolutely love my Lords. I'm 6', now 170 lbs, and have them in a 185. They seem to be one of the most versatile and enjoyable skis I've ever played with. Rentals get beat up more than your own skis would, so quality hasn't been an issue for me. I take good care of my skis, so the laminate is still in good shape. However, you're right that there is a bit of a cheap feeling to them. There are better quality skis out there. I've heard GREAT things about the Prophet 90's and they might be pretty comparable. If you look around, you can grab a good deal on some late model Lords like I did. You won't regret it. It's tempting to demo some Prophets, though.

Thank you AustinFromSA or your input,

bought Lord's in 177 from REI yesterday, there were $550.

BTW, what bindings would you recommend?

I paired them up with the Salomon STH12's. Great bindings for these skis in my opinion.
