I am debating whether to stay with my Pro8 or got to ProGRESSOR 8, or 7. Also not sure if last year Progressor 8 is same as this year but dif color? Found the older model for about $150 less adn don't really care about graphics one way or the other.
Demo'd a pair last year but now unclear which model they were and ended up with Pro 8. But getting told I should be on ProGRESSOR 8 or possibly 7 but most say the 8 sounds right for me.
Just want to keep my old bones having fun as many yrs as possible. I do not care about speed. (speed kills... ha ha). But love motion and movement. Love (most) bumps and digging glades at places like Ragged, Bretton Woods, etc. Can reasonably handle Icarumba, White Heat group, and Agony at Sunday River. Tin Man, Oz area are just right most of the time. Just skied Canon for 1st time in 40+ yrs and found myself in the Mittersill area. Wow!!! Had a ball but 4 runs wore me out wonderfully. Great day to end the season. Mostly (true) black to black and half is good higher end. Older skier (57) so need lots of power steering and quick response with light weight. Ski almost exclusively in New England so not concerned with powder behavior.
Don't really want to buy another pr of skis only to find they don't fit the ticket or not much difference from the Pro 8 I have used this year. Skied on Cross Max for past 6 yrs so nice step up and much lighter.
Any helpful feedback truly appreciated.
