Hello Epic Ski members!
I'm new to the board and wanted to introduce myself. Also thought I would pick your brains on what you think may be the best ski for me to use as a front-side carver.
First let me begin by telling you a little about me. This winter marks the 30th year that i have been skiing. had some down years and some years where i got a lot of days on the slopes. recent changes in my life(all positive) have opened the door for me to get back into skiing in a big way. I'm from NJ and have done the majority of my skiing in the northeast. I did spend some time out west and had an opportunity to ski Brianhead in Utah a few times. WOW what a different animal that was from the ice of the northeast! I'm back on the east coast and taking a lot of trips to the Catskills of NY and trips to VT. I'm 5' 7 and an athletic 185lbs. I consider my self a 7/8 rated skier, and I would say at this point i ski 70/30 on/off piste. I've been rockin a pair of 2005 Head iM75's 156cm(wish i had the 163cm) and they've been great. but I'm looking to pickup something that would be a true front-side carver. I found a few skis that I'm interested in and I thought I see what other thought may be the best ski for me. The 3 skis I'm trying to decide between are; Fischer RX9 165cm - Volkl supersport Allstars 161cm - Fischer Progressor 8+ 165cm. I'm of the school that thinks that a true front-side should be 70 or less underfoot. I know the progressors are a 72 underfoot but I've read such great things about them. Any thought or comments on these skis would be greatly appreciated.
looking forward to your feedback.
See ya on the slopes!
