looking to get a good ski for my iqr 600, consisting of trail riding,and some ditch-banging i want an aggressive ski that grabs and turns really well, im not to worried about money, what do you guys suggest?
ok let me ask you a ? why did you think they were uncomfortable? and how many studs did you have? im looking to run no studs and a 2" paddle tracksledneck1978 said:I had c&a razors on my iqr and for trail riding they made it extremely uncomfortable. They were way to aggressive in my opinion. I'd either use IQR or 09' or newer IQ's if I were you. Any ski with a good carbide is good for the ditch but it's the trails(corners) were it's gonna matter most.
i guess im just trying to get away from pushing, w/ no studs i can rear steer the sled to help it but im looking for a ski thats going to not pus throu a slanted icy turn, (which i get here)sledneck1978 said:144 studs. IMO the C&A's would be great on a track were they can follow ruts. On the trail were you are the one doing the turning they dig way too much.

yea i understand, an yea im expecting a workout, thats why i was trying to get what people have been using, i think he would be 100% better if he got different ski's for his sled, we ran with a guy this winter who had an AMAZING set of ski's on his pro-x and he could turn circles around us with no problem, but with no studs helps get away from an uncontrolled push, least i can rear steer the sled through a corner thats why i was thinking a ski with tons of grab and bite would be a good way to help with this.sledneck1978 said:At some point you may need to let off the gas a little LOL
And if you think your friends 08' pushes you're gonna hate your IQR. An 08' dragon turns 100 times easier. Two different breeds. I see what your trying to do. You're just gonna have to wait for snow and mess around with your new sled to try to get it dialed the way you want...or roll the dice and listen to one of us who have owned these machines. Everyone's preference is different though.
Absolutely. I had the consumer model that came with walker evans clickers....I don't know what year his is and what shocks it has but ya, for sure that would help.BrianLee said:For his push issue, would he be able to do some adjusting on the rear skid? As in ski pressure? dont know much about newer stuff, made a world of diffrance on my RXL
2008 iqr with the walker evans race set up is what i have for shocks, so all adjustable an able to create pressure and take pressure offsledneck1978 said:Absolutely.
