Re: Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

I bought something-- the Line Sick Day 94, 172cm 2018, 131-94-117. I was able to get it for a fair price. It came down to the Atomic Vantage 95C Women's 170cm due to size, shape, flex, and price with very favorable reviews. Then I went to pick them up and they had some heft to them, more than I expe...

Re: Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

So I have to ask, why not go with Vectors in 170 cm length? -- Thank you for the good description. I would say yes, but I am held back by budgetary constraints at the moment. They are $ and no good deals. I looked hard at the end of last season, but out of stock everywhere. Not a lot come up for sa...

Re: Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

No, I'm not working for Voile, but really, why not go for the Objective? Like 171cm...? They are like 1cm narrower than the Vectors... If I can handle the 178cm Objectives with cableless pins or NNN, I'm sure you would *LOVE* them with T4s...! The difference is not huge, but big enough to add a lot...

Re: Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

I know you've sold the Vectors so it's academic, but I think part of the problem you had was with the boot. When I first bought my Vector BC's in a 170 (I was around 145 lbs at the time) I skied them with the last generation T3, which is a forerunner of the T4. When I skied hardback as an experimen...

Re: Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

Whatever ski you decide on get the shortest length recommended for your weight for downhill performance. That's the mistake you made with the Vectors. The 180cm Vector is for 140lbs or above... I'm 160 naked... I love them when I parallel turn but when I telemark in rougher snow or terrain I just g...

Re: Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

Thanks- but no go. I'm looking into another ski class entirely here, not XCD, but an alpine ski for AT with wax base, and in the 170cm range. Got it. Edited for relevance so as not to encourage off-target banter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk No worries, dude. Thanks anyway for the effort and ...

Vector replacement- ideas? V6/UltraVector something else?

I love my 180 Vectors, they are an amazing ski. However, for my style and my strength level and my experience level in telemark skiing they are too much for me. Particularly the stiff tails really kick my ass hard in this length. Last year I bought an old pair of K2 Pep Fujas 169cm somewhere around ...
