Line Prophet 100 vs. 1080 Gun (2007)
So I need some new boards and Iím struggling. Iíve been on 04 Pocket Rockets and skied them into pieces. I love the ski and am thinking of getting a pair of 07 1080 Guns, but Iíve been reading a lot about the Line Prophet 100 and think it could be a better ski for me. The only gripe I have is that the rockets are squirrely when Iím mocking through run outs or on groomers and hard pact.
I know the Prophet is a stiffer ski, but Iím a bit concerned that it may be too firm for me. My rub is that Iím a skinny bastard, just muscle and bone, Iím 34 125# @ 5í9. Now I have the skills, been skiing since I was 4 on the east coast and now charge Alpine and Squaw 3 weekends a month. Do I have the weight to rock the prophets? I donít want the lines to crush my quads and have me bailing at noon. Any thoughts would be a big help! Also open to other ski recs.
