WHAT DO THESE SKIS DO?! (2018 "what ski should i buy?" thread)

So my sbound 98s are falling apart.

I *really* like those skis. Had a pair of sbound outtabounds before that weren't even close in how they turned.

Unfortunately, another pair of sbound 98s is like $350 right now.

Surely there's something lurking on some discount site for <$200 that might be worth trying (how I discovered the sbound 98s).

I primarily ski northern midwest powder and way undersize the boots for the amount of ski I have. I pushed the sbound 98s around with Rossignol bcx 6s in 75mm with no problem (except on icy groomers where it got kinda comical sometimes)

I have a bunch of options in NNN-BC and 75mm boot/binding combinations in my inventory right now.

What should I try this winter?

What length 98 are you interested in? PM me if you want to replace them with a very lightly used pair. I may be able to sell you something.

I'd need a 189 in sbound sizing, "longest available" in anything else.
