I skied a buddies FA 80 Pro's yesterday in a 171, and friggin loved 'em. talk about a fun, energetic ski. To me it was almost like putting power steering on your car, that's how easy they were to ski/turn. We had all kinds of condtions yesterday, clumps of manmade POW, ice chunks, sheets of boiler plate, and places you could set a good edge and lay em over. Those things rocked in that, totally rocked. The only thing I didn't like aboout them was the length, they got a little goofy letting them fly. At my height and weight (6'4", 242lbs) a little more length would've been nice, SO I ordered the FA 84 in a 184----they'll be here Friday. I know the weather sucks and it's gonna rain but DO I EVER HAVE A SMILE ON MY FACE!!!!!! Bring on the rest of winter----BITCH
Did you get the set up with the beer cuzy. I skied them last week at least thats what I think they were. Its a stiffy made for cruising fast. I like the ski, the one I tried was shorter than I would go but I got no tip slap at high speeds. Kinda like my AC50 well almost identical. Cut/make. Made me think about getting someone cut out my blown edge and hammering a new one in.
Im ready for 01/30 what would make 02/28 any different. They have a big air bag you can jump into on skis. 15 bucks for the whole day. Drunken air bag jumping is a very good idea. Just below it is the skier cross. Went in for the first time this year. My third time through I cleared all the table tops. Thats another woot.
