I've done some research and it seems like any of these skis might work for me (Bonafides too, but hard to come by).
6'6" 185lbs adventurous level 7 skier. I currently ski 2006 Nordica Top Fuel 178 and 2008 Fischer Watea94 186. I've never skied a rocker ski of any kind. I ski almost exclusively out west and will be skiing Tahoe for two weeks, Big Sky for 1 week and Summit County for 1 week this season.
I've loved the Nordica's since I got them and they are at least decent in all conditions and excel for me on groomers. The Fischers are nice as well and obviously have better float in powder. Both ski's do fine in crud with the Nordica tending to go through the crud and the Fischer going over it most of the time. The Fischer is pretty good on groomers, but not in the Nordica's league there. The only ski I've used that I hated was a 182 Volkl Mantra 2007 model. It was fine in powder/crud, but it was absolutely unstable on groomers with me driving it(zero problems with the Nordica or Fischer in the same conditions). I am a better skier now than when I had the Mantra's
I ski about 50/50 on/off piste and my off piste abilities while not great are getting better(I tend to alternate between kind of flailing around and looking like I know what I'm doing all in the same run). I generally don't like really tight spots unless it's low angle(think much of silverado at Squaw for being too tight for me)), but pitch doesn't bother me much and I do like nicely spaced trees(think champagne glades at Vail or much of the John Paul area at Snowbasin). While on piste I generally like to go fast to moderately fast and I find the longer Nastar type courses fun as well.
With that background I would love for others with experience on these ski's to chime in and I'll almost certainly hit up the Starthaus gang while out in Tahoe for a couple demo's. Thanks for the input.
