New to the site but I'm hoping someone can help me out.
A little about me - 45 years old, 6' 2", 190 lbs, Lange RX 110 boots.
My question - I have a pair of Elan S 12's (184 cm's) that I absolutly love but probably need replacing soon and I have no idea which ski is most similar to this ski.
What I love about these skis - These skis are incredibly versatile able to carve long turns but suprisingly quick edge to edge when you want to. They are very stable at all speeds (I haven't found the speed limit yet but admittedly I'm not necessarily looking for it either). When pushed they seem to give everything back but I can also kick back on them and not have to worry about getting bit in the a$$. In short - these are the best skis I have ever owned for ME (I don't want to start a debate on the best ski PERIOD).
I have demoed Volkl RTM's - nice but felt way too stiff and too on / off for me. When I pushed them they were great but I never felt comfortable kicking back on them. Also tried Fischer Progressor C Line 1000 - it also was nice but did not seem as versatile as the Elans. According to the Elan website I should be on the Amphibio Waveflex 14's (176 cm's) but I can't find a pair of these to demo.
Anyone familiar enough with the Elan S 12's to give me some idea which ski(s) might be most like them? Any help would be appreciated.
