Help needed - New SL skis and bindins

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, I know that there is many similiar topics around but I could not find answer for my question so I created new one. I am looking for new pair of skis and bindings for myself. I have experience for some years and I would like to move on. I have been training SL with my current set and I feel that I need better one to be able to move to the next level. I have been looking for good pair of SL skis that I could use for few years and even enter to competiton with them. I am afraid that I buy too stiff pair of skis, so I am not looking for WC skis. I am open for every brand but at the moment I was looking Rossingol  RADICAL 9 SL SN TI IBOX 13 + Px. What do You think, would this set fit for my use or would You reccomend something else (but affordable)?

 

Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english and spelling.

Not knowing your skill level, your location, your size/weight, etc. it's hard to make a recommendation, but the Rossi race skis are all outstanding.  Here's a quick video about the ski you mentioned, the Rossi Radical 9SL:

Race skis, especially FIS race skis, are always a bit spendy.  My suggestion would be to look for gently used skis from a local race club or team.  Some of the bigger junior racers grow out of their skis quickly without too much wear and tear on them, especially if the skis were their racing pair, not their training pair.

 

My wife loves the Rossi WC version, but it is stiffer.  This 9SL may be perfect for you since you mentioned not wanting too stiff of a boot.  

 

She also loves her Fischer Vacuum 130 flex boots because of the fit, and she feels it's not a true 130 flex.  Take a look at the Fischer boots, since I've only heard how much people love the vacuum fit.  Ultimately, you'll need to base your boot decision on what fits best on your foot.

 

Good luck in your racing!

Thanks a lot. I'll try to find Rossingols for test and make my final desicion then, maybe the gently used FIS skis would be better.
