I am new to this site but wanted to post a question.
I jsut got a great deal on a set of 2012 Atomic SL12 race stock skis in new condition. I am wondering if anyone has any opinions on this ski or have skied them? I will be using this ski for everyday all mountain skiing, mostly on groomers but alittle tree skiing in the Northeast.
First off I have been skiing for almost 30 years, I am 33 and 5'9, 160lbs and in good shape. I have done alittle racing when I was a kid but none since and would classify myself a skilled skier or advanced. I have skied Volkl Racetiger SL's for the past 6 years and have really liked them but the edges are worn so I started thinking of getting new skies and came accross the Atomics at a price I couldnt refuse. I wanted to stay with a slalom ski because I like the responsiveness and just find them fun to ski. Also everything else I have tried in comparison with a slalom ski just feels sluggish to me.
Does anyone have any opinions on my switch from 2006 Volkl Racetiger SL to 2008 Atomic SL12 race stock? My concern is that they will be too stiff for me. They currently have a 3/1 bevel but I would consider changing to a 2/1 to make them alittle more friendly. Any thoughts? thanks in advance for the feedback.
