Hi, I'm 16, male, 6'0, weigh about 167 pounds.
This season I skied with a pair of Elan Waveflex 14 and they handled really well and provided smooth carving on most terrain. Unfourtunatley they happened to have this freak design flaw where the plastic guard that protected the tips (and also binded the ski together) would continuously snap off which I would have to constantly repair.
Long story short is that I am recieving credit for the skis and will be shopping for new ones to buy.
I don't have any conditions in mind besides that I do all my skiing (in the forseable future) on east coast mountains (think killington and tremblant).
I consider myself to be on the higher end of advanced skiing and would like skis that are fast, reliable, and can handle most types of terrain. These skis will be an investment that I want to last a good amount of years (atleast until I can start making my own money and buying my own equipment ;)
Thanks in advance
