What I am looking for might not exist, but I'm hoping to find a ski that meets most of these requirements.
I seem to a like a ski that is damp and stays glued to the snow. I like the no speed limit feel of my MX78, though I don't generally ski that fast. My typical EC runs can be steep for a bit (where I like a ski easy to turn to keep speed in check) followed by long run outs where I will let them fly. So I don't want a ski with only one turn shape.
My MX 78's fit this fine. But, I would like something easier in the bumps and EC trees. I think I want something without the square tail for this reason. Probably some rocker too, but I don't want to give up too much edge grip. I like grip when it's steep.
Float is not important, I have a fatter ski. Crud busting would be more important.
5'9" and 190lbs, I need to get on my bike more.
Been reading too many reviews. All look like maybes. No particular order.
Blizzard Mag 8.5
Dynastar Outland 87
I know. DEMO. Not likely to happen. Time and availability has been an issue and will be for the rest of my season. I'm also comfortable buying now and selling them next season if I make a poor choice.
