Hello Epic skiers!
I improved my skiing level and I'm going to buy a new skis.
I'm from Europe (Bulgaria) and our resorts are around 1700-1900 m altitude.
I like groomed runs, but we have something like 70/30 days with firm/ wet snow conditions. I'm skiing around 20 days an year.
I would say my skiing level is intermediate/advanced and I'm going to improve it to only advanced next year.
My height is 178 cm and I weight 165 lbs.
I'm in a good shape (I do sports 3-4 days in a week) and my age is 32.
I like to ski on piste, carving turns, and when there is not a bunch of a people on the slope I increase the speed and the turn radius.
So here is my question.
I'm looking to get a Fischer Progressor 900, but I'm wondering which one 2013 or 2012. Here the price is the same - $450.
First I was going to buy the 800, because they were first in 2012 and 2013 world ski test, but I reconsidered (Is this a right decision?).
From what I read the difference between 2012 and 2013 P900 is the binding (and may be something I didn't saw with my amateur eyes)?
So what do you say?
Also which size 165 or 170?
