Best All Mountain Front Side Skis - Snowshoe/7 Springs-type East Coast - Page 2

post #31 of 32

Surfdog,

 

Thanks for your input.  I have always chosen skis longer than my 6', 160 lbs would typically justify, but after skiing the RTM 81's in 176 last weekend, I could not help but think that they felt like there was just a little too much tip in front of me as I skied various front side terrain.  Everthing else, I liked.  Out of everything else I demoed that day, these skis made me the most confident.  Looks like a pair of 171's is in my future.  Thanks again.

Interesting comments you make -  it's weird, the RTM 81 skis "longer" than its length (which I would take as effective edge).  Yet it seems to

love all turn shapes, skis fast or slow, a very responsive ski.  I think it is the combination of sidecut along with those steel suppported edges and the small bit of tip and tail rocker that makes it work.  I don't know why they call it Full Rocker, mine are clearly cambered in the middle, as are most of what I have seen. It's the best ski I have ever had.
