volkl p50 motion (183) under salomon xwave 10s

loved the p50 so much i discarded my p40 plats. though as a big guy (6'1" 200+ lbs) it's a bit easy to 'bully' the ski. it's requiring me to learn some finesse to go along with all the power i usually ski with. mad crazy go nuts through the crud and just RIPS up groomers. more pop than a can of soda.

Daking--- New School Twin-Tips are ski's, not snowboards, there is nothing new school about snowboarding

Got 182 Atomic Beta Ride R11.2's last year with Atomic R-614 Bindings

Just got Rossi Scratch BC's (Fat Twin) with Atomic R412 Bindings, was out in Utah for 12 days two weeks ago, didn't use the atomics once. The scratch's rock it everwhere, in the trees, park, groomed, and crud(although there wasn't much of that out there). And In powder i might as well be in bed with Rachel Hunter they are so nice.

I live on my Nordica Beast 74's (173) twin tips. Great in everything but very deep powder.

Bindings are also Nordica/system.

Boots are Lange L-10's but I am hoping for some comp 120's soon as my boots are dying fast.

I have a a pair of xscreams with a blown sidewall as well as a couple pair of force 9's and a pair of rossi vipers sitting in the closet. The numerous pairs of superforce 9 3s's were my main boards until I got my Nordica's last year.

I skiied the new RPM's in Austria this summer (168's), Great boards but I am jonesing for some b2 bandits with look bindings.

Well i get to slopes with a White 1990 Ford Festiva which is just big enough to throw my Rossignol Rpm 21s into both take me any where i need to go, Guess which ride is faster. Hope to have a pair of new Scratch twin tips in a few weeks.

Twin tips are skis but in the pass couple years all the snowboards were directional they are now going back to twins which means that the side cut and flex are centered.
Had last years Rossi scratch fs fun ski!!!

I love it because it is a very technical ski that likes to make tight turns in the trees. I have found that in uncut pow pow, the tip tends to dip a bit. Once the pow gets chopped a bit it excels. I also love the fact that it is a stable carver that has no problem straight lining a zipper line. A true "all mountain" ski.

Unfortunately it is very hard to find a Nordica ski dealer. The ski line is very race oriented and has not caught on with the general public in the east. I had to buy mine online. I like to buy my skis from Aspen East at Killington. They are a fantastic shop, with great customer service and I felt like a traitor. But after a demo day of 6 different skis I needed the beast.

Can anyone provide info about the new B2 Bandit?

B2's(used to be Bandit XX) are awesome. Very similar to my Atomic R11.2's. Carve like crazy, hold an edge like none other, and are decent in powder (not like my scratch bc's though). And in crud, there is absolutely no comparison, its like riding a tank through balsa wood fences, absolutely incredible. Two buddies of mine have been riding B2's (XX's) for three years now and they love them (i borrowed one of theirs for a week once that's how i can rate it)

I skiied the r11's and I thought they skiied a bit flat as opposed to my nordicas which always want to be on edge.

Please ask your Dad how I can stop my Struktura's from squeaking when I walk in them.

Skis- Hardpack- Rossignol T-Power Viper 160cm. (2000) They carve hardpack like butter! / Powder- Black Diamond Crossbow 163cm (2003) Float in only 3" of pow, can carve through crud!

Boots- LOWA Struktura

Bindings- Fritchi Diamir Titanal II's on both pair of skis.

The bandits are a foam core ski so the would feel a bit flat to advanced skiiers. I prefer anything with a wood core just like your Nordica.

Vokyl 724 Pro's rock through anything including bumps. A little less "grip" on ice than the star 6 but more versitile.

I agree 724's are decent skis. Wood core, go through anything including bumps and ice. Note they seem to be made for strong technical skiers. You can't cheat your turns or relax too much on them. But if you like blasting through everything they are great skis.
