Greetings, new to the forum. I'm getting back into skiing after a few "light" winters. After this season i'm going to look for some new skis since I've had my current pair for quite some time. I'm currently on a pair of 168cm Rossignol B3s from 06/07 I believe. I love these skis, they'll eat up whatever I point them at and cope with my ADD style of skiing very well. I've had my head out of the new gear world long enough that i have no idea what to look for as the spiritual successor to this ski.
I'm 26 years old, 5'7", and just over 200lbs. I've been skiing for 23 years, so i'm a fairly competent skier. I live in New England, so snow conditions vary. I'm looking for something that can mimic the B3's ability to jump from super fast carving on groomers to trees, to chop, to light bumps, to the occasional powder day. I've used the B3's everwhere from Targhee powder to new england crud and ice, to Tuckerman's spring snow, and they've never missed a beat.
I've been eyeing the new Experience 98/88 as well as the Soul 7, but was looking for opinions. I'm going to do my best to find a few demo days this year to try skis, but I'm honestly in the dark on what to try. I've been on Rossignols for over 10 years, the only exception being some Atomics I used in high school for racing.
