Last year I tried some Nordica Hell and Backs in 177s. I really enjoyed them except that I found bumps that I would normally be reasonably comfortable in quite hard work in that the skis seemed quite stiff and unforgiving of mistakes. I expected that this would be so compared to my old Nordica Nitrous 170s but there was too much of a difference for me to be comfortable with.
I would appreciate suggestions of similar skis to try that may be more forgiving in bumps. I am happy to trade off groomer, particularly higher speed groomer, performance for a kinder bump ride.
Is a Nordica Soul rider a possible alternative ( I dont know how I would go skiing with my eyes closed though ).
Any suggestions welcome.
