What ski would be next

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Currently I am skiing on K24500...I am a solid intermediate, if not an advanced intermediate. What would the difference be?
Anyway, in the K2 line, what would be the next ski for me to go to. I tend to be somewhat aggressive...
Would the Axis X be too much? How would it behave compared to the 4500? Thanks for your comments.... Ed

Between the 4500 and the axis x is the 5500 and the axis.

axis x may be more of a jump than you would want to take

I would tend to agree, but how would the 5500 and the Axis differ from the 4500....Would I be able to go faster, smoother and turn easier...What makes the Axis better than the 4500.
Is it easier to ski on the Axis...

I have the Axis [no X] - or actually, the same ski by its former name, which was K2 Mod 7/8. Same ski. It is wide, good in deeper stuff, easy, and forgiving. Downside: Not the best for hard snow. Answer: If you want to move up the line, please consider the Axis X. Now, THAT would help you go faster and be more stable at speed. Going to the 5500, as great a ski as it is, would not be worthwhile. Going to the Axis X WILL make a difference. Bear in mind, now, that the Axis X will not be as EASY as the 4500 - but its capabilities are great. If you're truly ready to move up in the K2 line, the Axis X is your next stop. DEMO FOR SIZE!!!!!! You MAY - not will, but MAY - need the Axis X in one length shorter than the 4500.
