Firstly hello to y'all. I'm swiss new here so forgive me if this is the inappropriate area to post this sort of thing but it looks suitable!
These two ski's seem fairly different so this should't be a hard one! I honestly can't decide between Head Peak 78 and Volkl AC50. Only being in my very early 20's I'm lacking a bit of the weight! But I'm 65kg (143lb) and 171cm (5foot 6inch). I consider myself a solid intermediate, however I spend a lot of time trying to improve on black runs. I want these pair of ski's to last me a few years and carry me through, up into the higher levers (such as blacks and double blacks on-piste). Being a bit of a speed freak I ignore the slow signs, and I tend to enjoy skiing more aggressively than most.
Finally: I intend to use the skis on mostly groom/hard pack in NZ and therefore a bit of ice here and there. Can/US/EU in the future.
Just a quick added note. I've spoken to a few ski 'experts' and many recommend the AC50 however others say I'd enjoy the Peak 78's far more. Any thoughts or suggestions would really help, because I'm more or less stumped.
Thanks for your time.
