Anyone racing on either of these skis? I'm looking for new GS skis for "glalom" GS sets (short courses with tight sets) for a 15 yr old, 5'10", 140 lb racer with strong technique. Don't need "FIS" approved skis for the local racing scene. He's been on both Volkl an Nordica junior GS skis and has a very strong preference to stay with Nordica. No interest in using other brands becasue of past wins.
I'm hoping to demo these skis but its been my experience that unless your running gates, a good ski outside of the race course might not be a good ski in the course.
