I grew up skiing the east coast and stopped skiing in the mid 90s. I picked it back up again 2 years ago to ski with my children who are now 6 and 4. I guess I have an older technique and picked up a used pair of 165 Sidecut Pilot's at a ski swap, 108-65-98 with a 14 radius that are not bad and seems suited to my style of skiing. Last season I demoed Salomon BBRs which were ok but disappointing, Fisher Progessor 900s which were pretty good and Kastle MX88s which chattered way too much
I was thinking I need a frontside carving or de-tuned racer for my weight, size and technique. I want to get something for next season and will not have the opportunity to demo anything else. Based on some research I was looking at: Atomic Redster Marcel Hirscher Race Skis 2013; Kästle RX 12; Ski Logik Front Burner; Dynastar Speed Course Ti; Kastle MX 78; K2 Rictor or one of the Head iSupershapes with a narrower waist.
I think the Dynastar Course TI might be best but at which length. I know they are being discontinued so I could probably get a good deal. Please give me your thoughts on if you think this is the right ski and what length is appropriate. I would also appreciate input on binding choice and first tuning suggestions for my local shop as I will probably need to purchase these skis from the Internet.
