I am looking into buying new skis. I am 6'4'' and approximately 300#. I consider myself to have intermediate skill level. I went to a couple of shops and I keep getting advised on buying GS/advanced skis because of my size and the stiffness it requires to properly handle. I am wondering if I should follow the advice and get more advanced gear even though my skill level is not there yet.
Some of the models I have been showed are the Atomic Redster Edge GS and the Elan Waveflex 78TI. I digged some info about both and it seems that the Elan might be more forgiving and easy to handle making it my choice for now.
Can anybody who have been through the same process give me some advice? Thanks
