New here and looking for advice on the above skis. I am 40 yrs old, 5'8" - 165lbs, intermediate-advance level. I have read all the reviews on both the Shockwave and Legend 80 - both skis got great reviews and are new (as in unused) and identical price. Looking for opinions from people who have skied both or either one. I will be on groomers 90% (blue and easy blacks) - but will want to go "off piste" from time to time. I ski primarily the PNW resorts and some Cal.
The Shockwave is a rocker ski, and I have never tried rocker skis before. I did demo the K2 Apache Recons last year and was very very impressed. Don't know much about the Dynastars - other then they got good reviews for an all mountain ski.
2011 K2 Amp Shockwave - 163cm 119/78/105 (rocker) - this ski became the AMP Impact for 2012???
2010 Dynastar Legend Sultan 80 - 165cm 126/80/108 - is there much difference between the 2010/2011?
Any input or advice would be welcome - great forum you have here!
