Looking for slalomish ski to mount tele

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Won a pair of Hammerheads yesterday and have been wanting a tele carver for a while now, so winning bindings just makes it even easier to convince myself I need skis!  A buddy has a pair of K2 Moto Sl's from a few seasons ago he has tele bindings on and I have skied them a handful of times.  They absolutely RIP on cord and ice, and ski firm bumps well also.  I have PE's already mounted and a pair of goats waiting for some bindings (not putting brand new hh's on em, going to find something cheap for them as they'll get less use than a carver in PA)  I'm not going to buy until summer/fall as I have a wedding to pay for first, unless a truly great deal where to pop up.  I'd love to just buy a pair of Moto's but as they weren't very popular in the US and are several years old, I can't find 'em.  So I guess what I'm saying is a I want a 11/12ish meter carver with some pop, that can be mounted flat, that will be reasonably cheap.  I'm willing to buy used as well.  What skies are out there?  I don't know if I want a full on race ski, but edgegrip and short radius are a must.

I have a pair of Stockli SL I got used from beer league racer. I put HHs on them and they are a blast. Racers often sell their skis after a season and they are well-maintained. There should be a lot of choices. Stocklis are flat and I believe Volkl SLs are as well. Have fun.

Out of curiousity, why mount a tele binding to an on-piste ski? I thought the appeal of tele applies mostly in off-piste terrain...?

For me the Tele turn is more fun, and for whatever reason I am pretty good at it.  Simple as that.  

 

So anyone else have recomendations?  Has anyone skied the Moto SL?  If so, what does it compare to?
