  1. The days of >110 underfoot pow skis are gone...

    I still have them! If I ever decide to sell them, you get first dibs to buy them back.

    I actually ski my C&D’s more than the L138’s since the ON3P’s handle heavy pow better.

    Seems like you want either the Fischer Ranger 102 FR or Enforcer 104 Free. Both are more accessible and fun than an M102 but still hold there own from a stability perspective.

    I own the 2018 Enforcer 100 in the 185 and 2020 Enforcer 104 Free in the 186 and 191.

    I bought the Enforcer 100 to ski with my blue run/intermediate level kids. It is very good natured and easy...

  8. FS: 19/20 Nordica Enforcer 100, 185cm w/ Salomon STH2 16 Bindings

    Not interested in the skis, but I sold an older pair of 185 Enforcer 100’s on a non-TGR sales platform for $300 flat (similar condition and one mount) and they sold within 30-minutes of posting.

    Stevens can be a real challenge on Weekends. The key is head up early and head out early. Hwy 2 is scary for those minivans and mid-sized cross-overs with crappy all-season tires.

    Super underrated ski with the TGR crowd. Such a fun and capable inbounds/resort powder ski.

    Another on the line on 188’s. Float fine at 200-lbs. Stuck with factory tune but detuned rockered areas pretty aggressively. Big sweet spot, so I don’t see a problem going fore or aft of the line.
