Blizzard Bodacious or Nordica Helldorado?

Best Answer Responded on

totally different. the bodacious is going to be strong and powerful where the helldorado is is going to be squirmy and floppy with all that rocker (some people call that playful)

Responded on

I disagree completely. Helldorado is a beefy, heavy, stiff, and really burly ski because it has a metal-laminate sandwich construction. I demoed the Helldorado and Patron last spring and the Helldorado absolutely crushed the re-frozen chunks and choppy spring conditions. Patron did very well for a non-metal ski but I digress. The main difference between the Helldorado and Bodacious is that the Helldo has a very short turn radius and tail rocker, making it much more playful and easy to turn, but at the expense of some high-speed straightlining stability. Helldo has long tip and tail rocker but the tips to not rise much so there isn't much flop at speed.
