I'm in the market for some rocker skis. I've got a set of Rossi all-mountain carvers that I really enjoy, but they're rather short and narrow, so I really struggle to make turns in the deep stuff.
Now, I'm torn between getting something nice and long vs something fat and short: I'm okay with not being able to fly down the groomed runs at Mach 2... I can use my rossi's for that.
What I'm not sure I'm willing to do is sacrifice the ability to do quick turns through the trees and moguls and stuff, which often is where a lot of the powder is found at resorts (and I can't afford backcountry gear yet). At the same time, I LOVE doing bowls and off-piste terrain.
So... there's my dilemma. Anyone have any advice/recommendations? I'm about 5'9", 190lbs if that helps
edit: I've got my eye on a pair of used Volkl Katana 178's for $400... is that a rip-off?
