Right now these two seems to be good choices, either Atomic varioflex 75 in 175 cm, or Head REV80 in 170 (what's the difference between rev80 and rev80 pro? the techincal data is identical but pro is more expensive).
I ski in the east and live in an large urban center, so probably 90% of my skiing is done in groomed hard pack and icy slopes, the rest compose of maybe 8% crud and other things. I like to stick with black if I can, or steeper blues, and carve at medium speed (about 35 mph sustained speed according to alpinereplay, not sure how accurate is it).
Any thoughts on these two skis? Living in Canada I don't have access to too many models and online stores like you guys in US.
