Need help with purchasing new skis

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello,
I'm in the process of purchasing new skis and would like to get some help from the forum members.  My current skis are Fischer AMC 76 (size 174) and I love that ski but I'm looking for something more recent/better.  I ski mostly front side/groomers although I would like to get a ski that somewhat suitable for powder as well.  I’ve heard good things about Volkl Kendo’s but would like to see if there are other skis that would suit my skill level and that would improve on my AMC 76’s.
Here’s a bit about me:
Skill level – low advanced
Height – 6.1”
Weight – 205
Ski areas – mostly out West but also some Midwest hills, front side/groomers
Days out –  about 10 during the year

I appreciate all the help.
Thanks!

Welcome to EpicSki. There are a lot of good skis in ~90mm goup that would probably work well for what you want. Blizzard magnum 8.5ti and Bushwacker, Nordica Fire Arrow 84 EDT or Pro, Kastle MX88, Atomic Nomad Crimson Ti(88mm), Atomic Nomad Savage Ti(93mm), Salomon Rocker2 90, Nordica Steadfast, Rossi Experience 88, and the Kendo. All except the Kastle have at least some tip rocker. The best advice is try to demo to find out what you like.

i agree demoing skis is going to be the best way of deciding what you like. the head rev 85 pro would also be a good ski to look at.
