Old man needs a Nastar ski Is this Volkl to much?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Me, 66, expert on groomers, skied Volkl 210 and down now to a Kendo 177. Love it everywhere except in the gates. I am skiing in Ohio and looking for a Nastar ski. I am 185lbs. My right binding is abducted to lineup by broken let so I need a ski I can remove the plate or a flat ski with no plate so I can abduct the binding. 

 

Found this at a really good deal 

Volkl Racetiger GSR World Cup RACE STOCK Skis 177cm new, wondering if I should go to a 177 in this type of ski. If I find the right GS ski I probably would use it for the east all the time and the Kendo for the west but I don't want to wear myself out so I am thinking this might be a tad long being a race stock ski or so they say. They are flat with out bindings. 

 

Also found, 

Fischer Racing Snow Skis RC4 WC GS Tyrolia Carve Plate 138cm R 10 FJ7 Bindings

Volkl Racetiger RC GS race skis 173 CM 2008

For Sale-Atomic LT12 176 GS race skis with Atomic 614 bindings These feature a 21 m radius and were the women's FIS compliant skis 

I have a 182cm Blizzard Sigma RS Titanium X Race with Atomic Neox 6-14 bindings ski in excellent condition. Made in Austria.

 

​Any help appreciated. I love Volkls and would go with the GSR but dont know if It might be to much work.

Hi - I'm not familiar with the specific models you mention, but a general comment about racing Nastar: For a guy of your size, something in the high 170's and a radius in the 17-21 m range should be easy peasy. I cannot imagine you on a little kid's ski (which is what a 138 cm GS would be; my 7 year old is on 130's) or a youth model (which is what 173 cm GS would be). Also, I'm pretty sure the GRS is a recreational race ski, not a FIS race ski, so the term, "race stock" would be there just to make it sexier. Either way, though, Volkl race skis are known for being fairly flexy, so seriously doubt even a women's FIS spec would be too much for you.
