I'm trying to look for a new pair of skis and demoed the Fuego earlier this season. However, to my surprise, I didn't really like them that much. I was able to control them, but find them rather demanding. They also tired my legs out much quicker than my current skis.
Currently, I'm on Tecnica Attiva V80 (custom fitted and canted) for boots, and Volkl Cielo (which I've had for 4 seasons). I'm 5'5" and slightly over average built. I'm in my late 20s and ski very comfortably on Swiss/Austrian/French red slopes and easier black slopes. On a non-icy and good day, I can also ski down steeper blacks. At the moment, we are working on some hopping turns and refining my short turns with the goal to get me ready for deeper powder and off piste. I'm already skiing some light powder in between the groomers, but not exactly comfortably.
I thought that it might be time for me to upgrade to a more advanced pair of skis given that my current skis are really meant for beginner. On the other hand, I don't have too many complains on my current skis. Well, some time, I would find them a bit unstable when I am going quite fast. Also, sometimes, on the blacks or generally on the steeper stuff, I kind of want something slightly heavier than my current skis - somehow I have this feeling that something heavier will give me more control.
In addition to the Fuego, I also tried Head MYA #5 PR. While I find Fuego demanding, they were still alright. But I did not like MYA #5 from Head at all. I found them very difficult to turn, and they just didn't feel right... Unfortunately, Volkl only had Fuego available from their women's line at the demo day, so I wasn't able to try anything else from them.
Any thought or comments or any other skis you would recommend me trying would be much appreciated.
