Hi everyone! Good discussions and reviews here. Can I pick your brain on new skis?
I'm 190lb w/o gear, 180 tall and almost 40 y/o, expert skier. Mostly ski Eastern groomers in Pocono and Vermont, once a year I get out to Austria where I do some trees, but again, mostly groomers as most friends don't do trees.
Prefer very aggressive GS runs if terrain and crowd permits. I have a pair of Bandit 1 for family fun and bumps, so I'm looking for the ski to satisfy my hard-charging, evil side, and maybe venture off-piste 15/20% of the time.
I checked out some ski stores, and got recommendations for Rossi E88 and Volkl RTM 84, but frankly I'm not ready to completely give up on camber, so the RTM is probably off the list.
Crimson looks promising, as well as E88 and Blizz 8.5.
What do you think? What would you suggest (aside from trying to demo them all)? I may be lucky to get demo one but not all of them obviously.
Thank you all for your expertise and time.
