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 :-)

KASTLE FX85 KNIFE - the piste

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi guys,
right now I am using my old salomon crossmax 8 pilot skis. I just found good deal for used KASTLE FX85 KNIFE -- do you know if they are ok for the piste riding ? I think that still for the piste riding my Salomon skis might be better, right ?

157 may be a bit short for you due to rocker

157cm is too short, I would have thought 166cm (ish) would be a better match.

thx a lot for a advice - I will search for ~166cm. I thought about searching for used Kastle skies (I heard that I would be able to find good deals as Kastle is not so popular and known company), but if you can recommend other model/brand, I will appreciate it.
