Re: Head Icon TT 80's

Todd, the tips didn't seem that soft to me. In fact the tips are probably a little firmer than those on the new SS's and definitely firmer than those on the old SS's. Yes at 220 lbs that would be a lot on the Icon 170's. The 176's may be better for you, but it is definitely not a burly/stiff ski. For me at 6 3" 180, it was fine and I could easily ski both the 170 and the 176 and both would have a freindly felx for me.

As for edge hold, I did not notice a difference between the edgehold on the TT''s vs that on the new SS's. I did not ski my progerssors on this trip in the same conditions. At 1 base and 3 side, these skis will hold fine on almost everything, certainly everything that we would want or be willing to ski. The edgehold felt better than that on my IM 78's, but my 78's feel a little base high and I have them at 2 degrees on the side (I have been too lazy to take them to 3 degrees). If my 78's were a true 1 degree base and 3 degree side, I think it would be the same or at least feel the same.
