Interested in opinions on which ski to choose. Ski mostly in the midwest/east on hard pack/groomed and occasionally in the west in powder/crud. Looking at Dynastar Outland skis, either the 87 or 80 pro. From the specs they seem to be the same ski but different geometry with the 80 narrower with a little more side cut. Any thoughts on these skis?
My thoughts were the Outland 87 would be more versatile for western skiing and soft snow in general but the 80 pro would be better for groomed/hard pack.
Was considering the Volkl RTM 84s but am skeptical about a fully rockered ski for hard snow skiing.
As for skill level it is very high but I am aging and have partial disability so while I ski fast I do not ski bumps, trees, etc. but still like a ski that has great edge hold and some rebound energy. The past 4 seasons I have skied Volkl Tigershark 10ft or Nordica Slalom skis on occasion. but want something more versatile.
