16/17 Blizzard Brahma 180cm bargain

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I'm at Xscape Castleford this afternoon and Ellis Brigham have a pair of ex-demo 16/17 180cm Brahma's mounted with Attack 13 Demo bindings (which are excellent) which they're selling off for just £336.00 which is a steal.

@PaulC1984 can't believe you've spotted the 'good deal' and passed up the offer

looking at the tech on the 180 brahma, it only has a ~6% bigger footprint than my 170 iRallys (unscientifically taking average of tip, waist and tail and multiplying by length) so probably not much more float in the deep. interestingly, the 2018 Brahma has gone from a 19m radius to a 17m

On paper, I really like the Head Venturi 95s, at 181 they are 20% bigger than the iRallys

I got the title of my "Recommend a ski" post wrong, I really want something that carves and turns on a sixpence like my iRallys but has more float offpiste where I'd like them to be twitchy and responsive and turn in the blink of an eye, I don't care about stable in a straight line.

Being honest, it's probably not a good idea to buy now and not have the money to pay for the bashes Embarassed

I'll try to get to the Oktobertest, as much for a social meet as anything but the test is probably best to rule out some skis rather than find the right one which would need a full mountain trial.

The January trip to St Anton, I'll see what test skis I can take out, even if I have bought some already so I don't end up in the same situation where I know how I want a ski to ride but have no experience of how other skis behave.
