So after leaving the world of skiing I am back into it. Male age 48, 5'9", 170. My buddy that I skied with a lot in High School finally shamed me into it. Purchased a pair of Magnum 7.6. Took a private lesson to transition to shape skis, have been up to Saddleback Maine a few times, and have skied the wider expert trails, Supervisor and Tightline without any trouble. I sort of under estimated my abilities I guess. I'm not aggressive, and like the cruising the groomers more. The speed will come with more confidence and experience, but all is well !
So to my question. I feel like I am over skiing the 7.6's. I want to ski a bit faster, but the skis, as great as they are, seem to get a little unstable on me. I looking seriously at the Supersonics, but wonder on the other hand if this is too much ski, or will my abilities increase to fit it well? I have a line on a pair (size 167) at a good price and figured I would get them even though the season is winding down.
Are they THAT much more aggressive and different a ski?
Any thoughts ? Suggestions ? Questions ?
Thanks for your help,
