Hi all, i'm going to purchase some new ski's for my trip to Austria in a few weeks. I have always fancied a set of Head Monsters few years ago but never got around to buying them. I've now had a look & seen they do a Heak peak range which is it's predecessor. The model i looked at was the 78. But have seen some comments suggesting the model without the metal in is to flexible.
I'm 5Ft 11in, around 12 stone, (78kg) & I'm an intermediate level skier looking for a good ski to advance my skills. I do enjoy quite a fast ski, & tend to ski more on piste, but would like something that I can use for light off piste when there is fresh powder.
I was thinking 78cm under foot would be a good size and ound 165-170cm long for my eye level.
Does anyone know anything about the Head ski's & are there any good equivalents I should look at. The prices I've been looking at were around £330 with bindings for the Peak series. the titans look like a good ski but maybe a little out my price bracket. Not sure if they will be a bit to aggressive or not?
I've been advised to get a smaller radius ski around 13m to help add more turns & keep my speed in control on the steeper slopes, is this advisable?
