Maybe that same ski still fits me, maybe not but I don't know enough about these skis to know what's best combo / size - looking for some help!
A little about me... 32yo male - 6ft 210#'s aggressive skier, advanced intermediate - advanced that will ski all over mountain, just lacking technique in some truly tough stuff - always eager to learn and push limits. been skiing 20 years. 80% of time doing weekday evenings or short weekends in northern Michigan or New York. Twice a year head out to Utah or Colorado. For West, I have 186 Gotama's. For East looking to replace some (what I think too short) 170cm Nordica Hot Rod Eliminator's from 2007 (about 7# something underfoot and 118 in tip). One thing I liked about them was how quick they were but likely result of 170 carving ski.
Anyhow, planning to keep the Nordica's for tooling around teaching my daughter to ski, and if they have any other use, but looking to replace with an updated mid-fat as my daily driver.
Ski shop recommended 2013 Kendo in 177cm (recommended 184 for size but said due to stiffness and length would be a bear in moguls so go down to 177). I don't ski moguls a lot but it is something I enjoy time to time. Same goes for trees so quickness is important.
Anyhow, is the Kendo a solid recommendation for my needs? Seems good to me, but all the reviews/ selling points seem to be high speed bomber sacrificing quickness. Keeping in mind I will take my Goats for most trips West. Any skis thy will be a better fit for some EC fun in my "big guy" size?
Any advise appreciated!
