I am a solid intermediate and I am looking to purchase new skis. I have narrowed down to the 2011 Rossi avenger 74 carbon and the 2011 elan waveflex 10 red fusion. I would like some advice on which ski to purchase for my ability level. My background is: I am 5 foot 7 inches and 168 lbs and I am very comfortable on blue runs and sometimes may venture into black runs. I mostly ski groomed slopes. I want to buy skis that will also get me over the hump of becoming an advanced skier. I would like to know if any of you members have skied any of these 2 skis? I would also like to know what length should I get with my physical characteristics. I am considering the 166 cm version of the avenger 74 carbon and the 168 cm elan waveflex 10. Are these the right lengths for me? Or should I get shorter. The advantage of the avenger is that it has the autoturn technology, which is suppose to be better in teaching how to carve properly. This autoturn technology is now present on the new Rossignol skis for 2012. The advantage of the elan skis is the waveflex technology, which is stiff torsionally and soft flexing. Please give some advice on which one I could purchase to have fun on and to advance.
