177 Latigos - minty

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I have a pair of Blizzard Latigos in a 177. These have three days on them and are in near mint condition. I should have bought the 184 and they are too short for me. My loss is (potentially) your gain. Skis have been mounted once for a warden with a 327mm bsl. Make me an offer.

Might be helpful if I put a price on these. I would take £135 without bindings. Or thereabouts.

Not as stiff as a race ski build and of course they don't have a binding plate like all of the race skis (well I can't think of a cheater GS that you can get in the flat). The race skis are also full camber whereas the Latigo's have tip rocker so they're more forgiving in variable stuff etc & therefore you need to ski the Latigo longer. IIRC the 177cm Latigo has 17m radius so still a little more turnier than a cheater GS.

T'was a shame that Blizzard dropped them as they make a great hard snow quiver ski when combined with something fatter, especially as being 'in the flat' they could be Quiver Killer'd etc. Problem was that they were a pricey ski (top end double metal layer & sidewall construction) trying to compete against the big named piste skis which you could get at the same price but with a rail/plate binding system included.

@spyderjon, Iíve got a pair of these and they are amazing. Iíve noticed the tip plan profile is slightly different on left and right of ski, Is this because they are handed, when the bull head is correct the two tips make a very slight pointed shape, worn the opposite they make a splayed shape. At my level I donít notice a difference but am curious if they are handed. Have traced profile of first250cm from tip onto paper and compared them and one side is reasonably straight when compared to the other.

@enigma, I've just dusted mine off and waxed them for Hemel tomorrow (normally on magnums there) and can confirm my tip profile has a difference on the internal edge too (straighter). Keep meaning to get mine QK by Mr C.

@gorilla, good luck with the sale at that price they really should be snapped up.

Absolutely adore mine! Grippy and very quick edge 2 edge. Great in bumps and they love the hard packed stuff. Big shame they have been discontinued. Fitted with QKs by Mr. C and alternate with WD Carbon Preachers for 'fluffy' days. If you are still thinking about them...snap them up now - you won't regret it!
