East Coast Mags, What are you skiing?
I am in full quiver update mode. What's your day to day front side ski?
I bought a pair of Phantom Crystal Ships for the trees and am thinking Dynastar Contact 11's for day to day. I am around 135-140 lbs so soft skis are where I usually head.I found pair of Volkl 5stars for $300. but decided to give them a pass. I may regret that move later.

Volant Machete-f'ing awesome ski in any condition < a foot of new snow (very heavy) I've got this mounted on a plastic riser on top of the plate that come with the ski. Makes my knees quiver, but sure can arc a turn.
Dynastar 8000-one of my favorites of all time. Not terribly stiff, I got this in a 178 and I should have gone longer...but, it's a great tree and billy goat ski.
Volkl Mantra-if we get any decent amount of snow I'm on these in a second
I'm looking to get a pair of pure powder boards (EHP, Goats, etc...) for the three weeks a year I get west (LCC and Jackson).
I would take a look at the 8000 and also think the Volkl Karma would be a good ski to go long on with a light body."I'm on the High-T and all I need is a little gravity to bring me back...back to the fringe"

Yeah I'm kinda thinking 8000 to the point where I may sell the Phantoms. That still leaves me looking for the basic inbounds packed powder/ice ski.

Me: 5' 11", 175#
I've been on 180 V-pros for several years. I'm replacing those with 185 Karmas.
When it snows much, I go to 180 explosives, but I want something fatter for.... well for fun
When it's hard I bust out the 177 race stock (oh yes) P40 SL's.

It's a small quiver: 178 Rossignol Scratch Mogul for all conditions.
Unfortunately they have to wear pasties.

Bro's...If I bought a pair it would be 179 softs. I am not sure about them as an ec every day ski though. Plus is looking like no western adventures for me this year.

179 K2 Public Enemys with Mojo 15's handle the day to day stuff really well
180 Atomic Heli Daddies with freerides for touring/pow day
180 Powder Plus(with frankenski spatula bend) to handle early season pow/nipple deep K-mart blower
The Role Players:
181 Dynastar Concepts w/ 977's mogul/rock skis
193 Volkl P-40's w/ markers speed skis
180 Alpina Cross Terrains w/ silvretta 300's sled hauling, long tour workhorses
Designated for Assignment:
178 G4's unmounted but drilled to many times to be sellable
177 Atomic TM:X's with freerides not burly enough to be an inbounds/sidecountry ski, but not light enough to knock the Heli Daddies out of the quiver for a touring skiFor sure, you have to be lost to find a place that can't be found, elseways everyone would know where it was

184 head monster IM 70 super rail flex, everyday ride,
176 Volkle Gots for when the snow flies, bought them short to handle the tight woods at MRG & Sugarbush, also used them in the early season when the snow guns are blasting out tons of snow, if it is soft they are fun, if there is powder they are great.
174 K2 Apachie Crossfire, thinking they me my everday ride
165 Dynastar Omecarve 10, for the afternoons, or when everthing is hard or the legs are cooked. Turns at ablink of an eye and feel like you are on rails.

168 8800's with freerides for everything. I'm thinking of getting rid of them and getting some bro's and mounting them with the freerides then getting a skinnier ski (70-75mm waist) for ice and moguls. Though I'm cheap so I probably won't do this.

180 Volkl Dragon Slayer- For ripping zipper lines when I am in the mood
174 Foils- Fun ski for screwing around in the park/pipe. Also not bad in the trees and the whole mountain. A little soft for me.
180 Atomic sx11- Hard, icy and Fast. These things are a ton of fun for top to bottom groomer runs at mach looney
188 Dynastar Bigs- Rock skis
188 Dynastar Legend 8800- Bought as a powder ski and for trips out west. They are good pretty much everywhere, not too exciting though.
I will be dropping the Foils and trying out the Nordica Ignition. Foils are for sale if anyone is interested. Pristine shape= I don't do rails
I am also considering picking up some bros so the legend 8800 will go on the selling block.
I CAN"T WAIT FOR WINTER!!

186 Karhu Jak Team for everyday
172 Karhu PFD for the days I just want to mess around
I'm thinking something big for charging when it snows

Lots of clear-out-last-seasons-leftovers sales going on 'round here, so I'm thinking some changes are in the cards for me. Might spend less time on the old favorites, saw some Heads and 8000s for a nice price. If I can find some P12 Looks from last season, I'll pull hre trigger.
Would really like to try some soft bros this season, that's about the only thing I can't get my paws on for a demo on the EC.
08-22-2006, 07:47 PM #19
174 PE - everyday
179 soft bro - powder
Considering some things, but this is most likely it for this season.
08-22-2006, 10:17 PM #20
170 Head iM72s ...and new liners!!!;-)
...also considering something with more float, but this will prolly be it.

Let's not forget the Phantom.
It isn't necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.

188 bro for everyday
184 volkl 724 for ice
185 pocket rocket for rock skis
186 spatulas for real deep days
193 m103s for days i want to scare myself
still looking for the nordica w105 or 9.1ffs that i've been wanting since birthThree fundamentals of every extreme skier, total disregard for personal saftey, amphetamines, and lots and lots of malt liquor......-jack handy

Me: 5'9 165
Last year was on 180 Volkl T-Rocks w/R8
this year will be on 176 Movement Freeheel w/ HH
Anything that is 87 or 88 in the waist is my quiver of one for tele'ing in northern Vt. I don't like how I have to alter my stance if I'm on anything over that and like getting really used to the nuances of one setup. I had a 3-4 pair quiver for years and would spend half the morning trying to adjust to what I was on for that day. If I moved back to yurp or when I can afford trips out west I will get something longer and upper 90's in the waist but till then, I'm stoked. God I wish it would snow soon!

I bought them here so I have no mounting info for them.
I emailed Phantom but so far nada.
Got any info you can share?
