Would the Nordica Steadfast be your 1 ski quiver?

skiing mag sure makes you believe it should be. What do you think and have you been on these?

Actually, Skiing said that the Cochise was the new OSQ for out west. But have a hunch the Steadfast would make a nice OSQ for back east, or for westerners who are more 50/50.

Who has skied this ski that can give me an honest assessment on it's ability to hard charge and hold an edge. I really do not want a squirly ski t speed. I'm 210 and ski aggressively.

the cochise killed my knees on hard west coast snow IMO the bonafide is a OSQ east or west

Is the Steadfast a re-naming of the previous HR Pro Helldiver (dimensions are the same)?

 

I demoed the Helldiver last year (170 cm) and I was very impressed considering the dimensions. For my size (5'6" and 155 lbs) the 170 cm was plenty of ski for higher speeds, but what this ski did best is turn, hold an edge and make heavy, slushy snow feel like powdery stuff. It may be a bit stiff for true powder skiing, but unless one need a powder specific ski, this really seems to fit the OSQ criteria very well.
