Okay, a little research later and I've narrowed down to a slightly different selection of skis that are in my price range.
2012 Line Influence 115
- the widest ski in my shortlist at 115mm underfoot, from what I have read it seems to be a ski for the hard charger and going fast, which is fine by me, only question is how it will handle on piste as no matter what I get I will have to ski on piste at times on it.
2011 Faction 3.zero
- Well reviewed, decently priced, seems to be what I am looking for, only issue is that it is that bit more expensive than the Lines or the Gotamas and the shipping to my location is a bit more expensive.
2012 Volkl Gotama
- The narrowest ski in the shortlist, very well reviewed and a lot easier to handle on piste than the others from what I understand, also the cheapest ski in my list, unsure whether to spend more in order to get the extra width offered by the other options or whether to get the more practical ski as realistically epic powder days are not always on offer in Europe.
2012 Volkl Katana
- The most expensive ski in my list, very well reviewed and as with the 3.zeros it looks perfect for what I want, only issue is the aforementioned price, as a seasonaire I'm not exactly flush with cash and unsure if the added price would be worth it over any of the above.
Basically all the skis I've looked at are well reviewed and am looking for some first hand reviews if possible.
