    Ski chosing advise

    Hey, looking to buy a new set of sticks at a good price now that it's the end of the year. Looking for opinions.

    I'm 6' and 170 lbs. Mostly ski in Alberta/BC. Try to ski backcountry as much as possible but probably 70% in-bound/ski area hiking. Currently ski 185 cm Pocket Rockets from about 5 years ago and have a pair of 190 Atomic Thugs for epic days. Looking for a pair of skis to replace Pocket Rockts as an everyday ski.

    Options are:
    1. 07/08 Dynastar Legend Pro. 186 and 97mm at the waist
    2. 07/08 Seth Vicious. 189 cm.
    3. Lightly lused Volkl Gotama 190 and 105mm at the waist

    Any info would be appreciated.

    If I was you, I would chose Rax Skis:

    Please post a review after you ski them!

    The lightly lused Gotamas would probably work too.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    As you have figured out by now, this question was posted in the wrong forum.
    Do yourself a favor a delete it and go to tech talk. Spend a few days reading about the skis listed in the Skis Review, then post your question there. It will go over better and you may get some helpful advice.

    Ski's with robots on them. Robots with laser beams for eyes would be choice.

    Look, if you're going to be a prick and critique people's spelling on the internet go ahead. JONG doesn't even make sense, wtf is that? If you pussy name callers think this is the best way to promote a board that should be welcoming to skiers (just because I haven't posted here doesn't mean I haven't skied as much as anyone on here) you're mistaken.

    Anyway, I tried to delete this damn thread, I don't know what went wrong. Got the heads up about the tech forum, thanks, posted there now.

    There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people that ask questions.

    ...and another one...

    If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

    What make you think this is a board that should be welcoming skiers? Get the fuck out!

    And yes, just because you haven't poster here DOES mean you suck more than anyone else.


    Oh, and JONG....................................

    This doesn't make sense.

    I don't make sense.

    Oh JONG, thank you for the comedy.

    Read first, ask questions later. Especially advice. I wouldn't trust anything these fuckers say about skis anyway. But I am slowboarder so what the hell do I know.......

    Other than to take it to Tech Talk
