Looking for a Slalom ski on the cheap to build skills and use on the local hills (300' vert) with my kids. I'm 6'2, 195lbs, Advanced. Found a few GREAT deals, and am looking for some feedback on the following:
-Dynastar Omeglass Fluid - 172cm
-Head Icon TT 80 - 158cm
-Head Icon TT 60 - 164cm
I know there are other excellent SL skis out there, but budget is a priority right now, seeing as this will by my third set of skis purchased in one season, and Boss Lady's generosity at home is starting to wear just a wee thin.
Anyways, each of the above skis have 13-14m radius, prices are somewhat similar-ish range. But I'm mostly concerned about the length. 164cm seems like best fit for short carver, but is the Icon TT 60 clearly inferior to the 80? Is 158cm too short or will a bit of stiffness on the TT 80 compensate? Is 172cm giving up too much maneuverability?
I'd appreciate any input/experience, thanks.
EDIT: Crap, I just noticed a brutal typo in the title. UGH. Maybe a mod can fix it to read "feedback"?? Thanks!
