My 9 year old daughter is transitioning from "Development" to Race Team this year and I've concluded a non-plated multi-event ski is better suited to a younger and newer racer than a dedicated SL or GS ski with plates. She's about 60 lbs, a strong skier with a nice clean carve, but not too aggressive in the gates (yet). Skiing since age 3. I'm looking for a 125 or 130 cm ski.
Dynastar, Head, Rossi, Volkl, etc. all have entries in this category but I've found the best deal on a Dynastar Team Pro (new 2012 ski). Any opinions on which ski in this category might be best for her? Which brands are less stiff? Thinking I'll spring for the deal since I can't find anything used around here.
