    We're excited to share our review of the new 2020 Nordica Enforcer 88! We've been testing these skis for about a month now and are genuinely impressed. Hands down a valuable addition to the lineup.

    I'm DYING to get on these! (The Santa Ana version.) Could this be the ski that finally supplants @utskier's E88s of old?

    Amazing! Nordica has like 5 skis with the same name and just the width. They've finally realized we, and shops I presume can't, or don't want to, remember gobs of names.

    This totally makes way more sense to do it this way. When people can easily understand a product they are more likely to buy it. The opposite is also true! When I was helping my wife shop for skis I got so confused by the K2 & Head women’s ski names. All-of-it, some-of-it, none-of-it?? & something or other joy??? I gave up trying to keep them straight. She ended up on Nordicas as well.:D

    Plus, at least for the Enforcer name, IMHO there will be a halo effect of familiarity and quality amongst the general skiing public for the E88. “Oh, you’ve read great things about the E100, but only ski groomers. Here’s a (mostly) groomer ski that still has that tough sounding Enforcer name.” Heck, even I’m intrigued and I have the E93! :roflmao:

    I really enjoy the 100s, and thought about some 93s, but too close to each other for my tastes.

    The 88 may very well open my wallet.

    I also enjoy Fischer skis, so we will be needing an E88/PM86 Cage Match @Philpug!

    This ski sounds like an "updated" version of the Old Nordica Enforcer (98) with some rocker. I still ski the Old Enforcer and love them dearly.

    Having never skied them (though I have HUGE love for my Motive 95s), I firmly believe the Pro Mtn 95 needs a bit of nose work......

    @SkiEssentials can you send me a pair of 186s tomorrow?

    Attack 13s @333 BSL, and minus 1 cm.

    Waiting with card in hand!

    I see that the shorter lengths are available.

    Any guess on the 185s?!

    Thanks!

    You all see a lot of difference between the current PM 86 and the 2020 ski that replaces it? I like the 86 a lot and was thinking of pulling the trigger on the 95 as they can be had for great prices right now. Maybe I should wait...

    If you are wondering if there is a better PM 95 coming, there isn't. If you want what the 86 gives you in a bigger platform, then I'd go for it.

    That’s part of it, I was also wondering how the new 2020 ski that’s replacing the PM 86 compares to the current PM 86?

    BTW, I pulled the trigger on the PM 95. They will be here in about a week.
