Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Which skis to buy for off piste ? Rossignol Super 7 OR Atomic BENT CHETLER

 Poster: A snowHead

Rossignol Super 7 Mens Twin Tip Skis Or Atomic BENT CHETLER Twin Tip Skis

I haven't checked around much yet re costs but my first looks show the Rossers at £ 100 more than the Atomics.

I would just take these out for off piste days in Europe, so not necessarily powder.

Super 7s are the 195's with metal right? Will be more directional and chargy than the Bents, which should float a bit better and be more playful. Similar skis (with the 5 point shape and rocker-camber-rocker profile) you should look at are Whitedot Redeemers (not the Preachers suggested above), Moment Bibby Pros (my weapon of choice) (and maybe Night Trains), 0N3P Billy Goats, Icelantic Keepers, and Armada JJs. DPS Wailer 112s are a similar shape but a bit skinnier. Black Diamond have something similar too, I forget the name though.

I'm on the 192 bents after my Atlas got warrantied and they only had bents to replace. Is warrantied a word?

Never heard a bad thing about the atomics but S7s (even the super) seem to divide opinion. Lot of people say they plough rather than plane in pow. I haven't been on them but some people love them.

For £100 saving I would grab the atomics. I spent a season on the 183s when it wasn't boilerplate and took them everywhere but were just a bit short for me. Killer ski though and can't wait to get on the 192s. Will hopefully get them out in Chamonix on Saturday if travel plans go ok. Woot.

Errrrr this (in addition to the above) ;

I've added Rossignol Experience 98 to my "maybe" list as a result of the info on here... It's got a huge amount of info on skis that would suit - whether you want hard charging; fun forgiving and a little flappy/soft; über Mach 60/40 off-piste/piste (Experience 98 ) ; jib-biased ; etc etc. The powder day they had on the Armada JJs is inspiring!

I wanna go to Alta... Soon.

Having ploughed through all the reviews, including the excellent blistergearreview site linked above, it appears that the Super 7 is very much a Marmite ski while the Atomics seem to be universally praised. I didn't go for either in the end but only because I was looking for something a bit more versatile.
