These XW Tornadoes have been obsoleted but I need some guidance on what replaced them in the Salomon line-up. As beloved as this ski was, I can't see Salomon completely ditching the design. For my aggressive, high-speed, mostly on-piste skiing style, the tornadoes were easily the best ski I've ever skied. They were also exceptional in quick turns, jump-turns, and bumps. Now that they're no longer made, I'm looking for their worthy successor. I'm not looking to re-invent the wheel or take my skiing to the next level, just something that feels the same under foot. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. Thanks!
Replacement for Salomon Xwing Tornado
If you're skiing mostly groomers then you couldn't go wrong with something like the Kastle MX88, MX83 or MX78. I love my 178cm MX88 and am essentially the same size as you.
If you can't justify the expense of a Kastle then something like the Blizzard Magnum 8.5 (more hard snow biased) or the Rossi E88 might be worth a demo.
