I recently bought a used pair of rossi FIS GS skis. They are the 9x model 184cm with 23m radius. I got a good deal on them and thought they would be good as a beer league race ski.
I'm 6 foot and ~220 pounds, i consider myself an expert skier. Defiantly a technical skier, just got my PSIA 3 two years ago. I've never been much of a racer though, I just never spent much time in gates.
so now to the question....A friend of mine suggested that these are too short for me and are in fact a junior race ski. He thought they were more suited to someone half my size. Again he doesn't have a race background either, but i respect his opinion as an instructor.
So did i buy wrong? are these going to be significantly to short, soft, etc?
I would love to hear some racers opinions.
