Replacement for Head Supershape Magnums ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

My girlfriend's been on Supershape Magnums for the last 4 years and is getting a bit "bored" by them: as she's gotten to know the skis quite well she seems to have lost a bit the challenge they provided when she first had them.

So she asks me to have some suggestions for skis to replace them.

 

Some data:

- she's an advanced/expert skier skiing mainly here on the East Coast (Québec region), fast on piste carving, bumps

- she also takes them when we go skiing in Austria, where we do some more off-piste

- she's got a relatively agressiver/powerful style

- she told me she looks for a ski that would be "the same, but different" (i know, ....) as the Supershape Magnum

 

So I'm looking for suggesions for skis for her to try.  She would like to change to another brand, thinking about Atomic, Fischer, Volkl, Blizzard maybe Dynastar (Rossignol and Nordica have been excluded).

 

Any suggestions (or does she need to be more precise), mainly in previous season's models (2011-2012-2013) ?

Last year's Supershape Magnum (with KERS).

The new Magnums, or Rally's, or Titans... A little early rise this year and changes to sidecut profile.

Thx for the replies, but she wants to change to another brand, doesn't want Heads this time

Agree. I have the 4 or 5 year old SS Magnums, as well.  The new Supershape line will be a significant improvement. I thought the new Rally was probably the best frontside ski I've ever been on.

 

That said, they're not really going to be great off trail. If that's truly a priority, something like a Rossi Experience 88 might be a better compromise. Or maybe a Volkl Kendo since you say you've ruled out Rossi.

If you're in the doghouse, Stöckli AR...
