Super fat for big-mountain pow lines.

not my bag
to big for me they hurt my tinder ankles, also they were not as good a performer as I had hoped even in just the deep stuff there are better skis.
Do these have any kind of reverse camber...
Do these have any kind of reverse camber or no camber or what?
They have slight rocker combined with lines early taper but no revrse camber.
i am wondering how the prophets compare...
i am wondering how the prophets compare with the rossi S7 and the BD megawatt? looking for a new powder ski that is playful, but not to loosy goosy! i ski legend pros now and love them. looking for something with more float and more playful. what do i do?
The Rossi S7 is a super pow ski, floats tons, and handles hardpack better than you would expect looking at it. The Megawatt is probably the least 'playful' of this bunch. The Line is a super floater, and it's pretty freakin' playful. The SFB might be an even more versatile and playful ski, still with a stiff, un-noodle like flex.
I am about to mount my Line Prophet 100's...
I am about to mount my Line Prophet 100's with a new pair of Fritschi Diamir Freeride bindings. My Prophets are 186. I am 5'11" weigh 165 and ski very aggressively (but also hope I didnt get skis that are too big for me). I chose this set up because I often ski switch, hit lots of jumps and drops, like to ski steeps, and may eventually use this as a touring set up. My question is: Where should I mount this set up? Ideas?
From what you say you do i would set them up at about 2cm back from center. Thats a pretty neutral area for a solid freeride set up and you still have a lot of tail side for some switch riding and stuff.
Don't be scared of the width
I used to ski when I was little then Snowboarded for about 15 years. I've since then switched back to skiing for the last 4 seasons. I first bought the K2 Seth's and enjoyed my comeback however I when I took my buddy's prophet 130's out for a few runs I was in love. I alway's loved snowboarding because you'll never beat snowboarding in Powder with skis however I found these ski's the next closest thing. These skis ride very nice, they don't have a lot of side cut but you can easily ski the resort with them. This is my only pair and I do everything with them, tour, resort, groomers etc. I put a pair of new Fritschi's on them (AT Touring bindings) and they have stayed solid. I get a lot of comments about weight with touring but hey, it's all about the quality of the ride on the way down. I may hike a little less but you will probably hear a few extra woo hoo's from me on my way down at a slightly higher pitch. Bottom line is that they are very easy to manuver, ski with and the reward on them in the Powder out weights it all. I have no need to change my ski's for a long time.
to fat for me
I just don't like the feel of these bad boys, they are a little to soft and they put to much torque on my ankles. about 115 is my limit under foot
