I'm 33 years old, 6'4 190lbs, ski on the west coast. (Mainly Oregon for now)
I have a pair of Salomon Czar's that are 112mm under foot for real powder days and an older pair of Volkl AX3's 70mm underfoot.
I have been looking for a ski in the 80-95mm range, something that I can fly down the groomers with confidence, yet can handle a decent powder day. More of an all mountain ski.
The Volkl Kendo's really caught my eye, My only concern is that the Kendo's do not have Rocker technology for crud and powder. Do you think that will be a major hinderance? The Salomon Lord has a similar sidecut but has a Rocker.. but would that make it less efficient on the groom?
I'm looking for my next everyday ski, I had been skiing the Czar's, but want to keep those just for deep days and maybe downgrade my AX3's to my early/late season ski. Any input would be appreciated. =)
