What Skis to Buy

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am a level 2 CSIA ski instructor who is going to go for my level 3 this winter and i am struggling with the decision on what ski to buy.

I am female and weigh about 60kg and an 5ft8" an quite an aggressive skier for my size.  I am also about to move into a lange boot with a flex of 110.

I currently ski a set of Nordica Victory's in a 163cm which are all mountain and i love but are starting to have seen better day and have many a season under there belt.

 

So i have been looking for a pieste ski something with a waist around the 71/72 and come up with:

Head SuperShape Magnumes

Rossignol Attraxion 6 Echo

Nordica DOBERMANN Spitfire EDT XBI CT

Nordica DOBERMANN Spitfire PRO XBI CT

 

Has anyone skied any of these skis? An can offer any light on the matter?

EmmaSki,

I'm not sure what you need but I suspect it will be a frontside carver.  Check this thread out; it was a very, very thorough review of new skis offered this year.

Also, if you are interested in a specifically woman's point of view, put up a post over at TheSkiDiva.  They aren't usually as technical over there as here, but the advice assumes you're a woman instead of a burly guy in terms of weight.

Best of luck on your Level 3 skiing exam!
