Ski recommendation: Salomon Suspect vs 4frnt Switchblade vs other

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, I've been skiing since I was three years old, and I was an instructor last year. So I would consider myself a pretty good skier. I ski during the winter (January- March). I'm looking to buy a new pair of skis, and unfortunately I live in Atlantic Canada so my choices are limited.


Ski length would be 174-176 cm (I am 5"9, 175 cm, and weigh 145 pounds). I would like to have good all-around skis which are especially good at carving, but also good for glades. I am currently looking at two skis, the Salomon Suspect and the 4frnt Switchblade which are both around the same price ($450). Both are park skis but their width is about 88 mm so I have the tendency to say they should be fine for runs as well.

 

Which of these two skis should I buy? Or are there other ones I should get?

 

Cheers,

Florent

Any suggestions?

I'm currently leaning towards the Suspect. Is there anyone that would advise me against this before I take the plunge?
