First let me start by saying sorry I always feel like I make a thread about skis but I have really narrowed my question down this time. here is what kind of skier I am:
I can ski the whole mountain but I am working to get better in crud and more speed and smoothness especially on steeper terrain. I am learning spins, doing a bunch of 180's just to get better switch and then I'll work on 360's. My skis now are too short, have no rocker and 90mm underfoot, kinda makes the ultimate combination of suck in powder. I am not saying new skis will make me a way better skier but there will come a point when my skis will hold me back. However, I am trying to make the most out of my skis as far as spins because I know it's gonna be harder to start a spin on longer heavier skis. So yeah, the title says which two skis I have narrowed it down to from size available to stock, rocker or not, etc. My question is which of these two skis will work best for me and allow me to use for at least all of this season through all of next? I like the Blog because it has a tail rocker and I know that would help in powder switch. I already know how hard it is to stay balanced in deep powder going straight with no rocker I can imagin landing backwards virtually standing on the front of the boards (unless I get center mount which I won't most likely.) I don't like that they come in sizes 177-185. I feel like the 185 would be far too big but I saw someone said the 177 is soft and disappointing. I also don't know if 177 will be big enough considering I am still growing and want a ski i can use this season and next. Maybe i won't grow at all who knows. I like the Czar because 182 seems like a good size that may be slightely big for me now but it will give stability at speed, I don't like it because there is no tail rocker and maybe the 182 is too big?
