I ve been looking for some new skis and would like to hear some thoughts from people on here. I'm 6 feet tall, 165 lbs and probably a low advanced skier.
Currently I have the following:
Moment Ghost Chant 186 for powder.
Moment Ruby 188 for days when we get decent snow around Tahoe.
Elan 888 in 186 for my all around ski. Got this as a great deal, but it is a bit too long for me. It does great on long radius turn, but I would like something a bit quicker and something that would be good in moguls, which I plan on practicing more.
K2 Omni 5.5 in 176. This is about 6-7 years old and I bought the Elan to replace it. Good ski but not as stable as the Elan at higher speeds.
Looking at Elan Amphibios Waveflex 14 and 88Xti. I demoed the 88XTI in 170cm and loved the ski. I can get a used model with Fusion binding for basically the same price as a new model that is flat with Tyrolia bindings. Any suggestions if there will really be a difference between the bindings?
Not sure if I should go with a size 176 or 168 for the Waveflex 14. I would appreciate if anybody could give me some input here.
I also found a Volkl Werks RTM 84 for a "reasonable" price and would like to know if that model is any stiffer than their regular RTM 84. I demoed the RTM 84 in 176 and thought it was good, but wanted it a bit faster to turn. Was thinking about the Werks in 171.
Looking forward to some responses. Thank you.
