Another All-Mountain Ski question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I’m looking for a new all-mountain ski. As always, demos are not available so I may need to pick a ski without demoing it. Currently I’m skiing RX8s and Head Monster 77s. Love the RX8s, the Monsters77s (despite high recommendations) not so much. What I have briefly skied and liked is the Rossi 82 Avenger. I think what I like about the Avenger is that it skis like a carving ski, in other words, like my RX8s. I’m mostly a front-side skier. So, I guess the question is, do I look for a pair of Rossi Avengers or are there others I should consider? The Nordica Firearrow 80, Blizzard Magnum 8.1 and K2 Rictor sound like interesting alternatives. Any thoughts? Thanks.

If your mostly a frontside skier why do you want an 'all mountain" ski.

 

Where do you ski?? do you want to remain mostly frontside? how much do you weigh how tall are you?

If you like the RX8, the Fischer Motive 80 or 84 may be the ski for you.

I demoed the Rossi Avenger 82ti and LOVED it.  I almost bought it on the spot, despite already having a front-side ski.  My sensible side won over....sigh.....

 

I say if you skied it and liked it....Get it!
