I am 6 foot 6, 205 lbs, ski around 40 days per year with my race team, and am looking for some planks that dig trenches in East coast boilerplate (Hunter, Mtn Creek, Sugarloaf, Sugarbush, etc) in a variety of turn shapes.
Right now I have a set of Nordica Doberman GS Pro's in 186cm (basically a pure beer league GS plank) as my go-to ice freeski. It rails like there's no tomorrow, but prefers a twenty-something meter turn radius and has a design speed somewhere around Mach 2. It's very good at what it does, but there are times when I'd like to lay down some shorter turns on the hard stuff, play in the bumps, or ski at a safe and reasonable velocity.
So far I've been looking to fill this hole in my quiver with Nordica FireArrow EDT 84's (in the longest size, 184cm) or Dynastar Speed Course TI's (also in the longest size, 180-something).
I demoed the narrower FireArrows (FA 80) and fell in love with their playfulness; by all accounts the 84 feels very similar. Both these skis are (very) hard to find as demos, so I never got out on the Dynastars. Can anyone who has skied one or both of these shed some light on their relative merits? Also, I sometimes hear good things about Head Supershapes, but I don't know much about them.
Thanks in advance for all your advice!
