I have all mountain and powder skis, but need a replacement for my older and now cracked Blizzard Viva 7.6.
I'm 5'8", 117 lbs, expert female skier, ski 50+ days in a season now looking for a great edge hold, quick, carving ski for hardpack, not too stiff in bumps. So, I've just demoed 2012 Blizzard Viva 7.6 (163 cm) and they still had great edge hold on morning ugly, frozen hardpack in Vail, still fun skis, but they were very light (in weight). Almost too light? Now I'm wondering if perhaps men's Magnum 7.6 might be a better ski for me.
I saw 2011 new Magnums at a great price, but no demo.
Does anybody know if Magnum is substantially stiffer and/or heavier than Viva, or just a little?
