Maybe you should change the subject line to something that says what you're looking for.

I am 66 years old 180 pounds been on Volkls most of my life, loved my P 9 RS super 210 cm currently on a kendo 177. I am a level 9 on piste. I can do high speed GS turns on the kendo or short swing it down the fall line. I just started racing again after 15 years best I can do on the Kendo is a bronze and I am not very good at the gates. I live in Ohio in ski mostly on a 500 foot vertical hill with trips to New York and also trip to Pennsylvania on 750 foot vertical hills and a couple of trips out west. the Kendo is so easy to work and so much fun for an older guy like me. now I want a better piste ski for the east where I'm at, something that can do short, medium turns with a little long turns, be stable at speed rip up the ice. then I need a easy slalom skis for the gates on my 500 foot vertical Hill.

I'm a big fan of the RTM series for an all-around ski. I currently own a V-Werks RTM and love it. That being said, I have 6 other skis as well. Given what you said about where you ski, I would recomend the RTM 81 for an all-around ski and the Racetiger Speedwall SL for the slalom ski.

Where in Ohio? Little know fact about me, I was born in Oberlin and took my first runs at Boston Mills before moving to Stowe at age 11.

so you don't feel the race Tiger SL would be too much work can you compare to the atomic SL or new Volkl SC

Above the RTM you would have to go to the Racetiger Speedwall GS. I can't compare to the Atomic. The new SC is a softer ski. You would get better performance out of a V-Werks, RTM, or GS. I ski the RTM almost every day in near every condition. I only go to the Speedwall GS when truly firm everywhere, like after a rain and freeze up.

I have the SC UVO (see thread http://www.epicski.com/t/126201/demo-advice-short-radius-skis#post_1699666).  I'd agree with this.  It's a high-performance ski with a short-ish (14m) radius, but not a slalom race ski.  I like the ski because it's *not quite* a race ski.  

 

See also http://skicanadamag.com/2013/09/20/ski-test/ski-canada-test-2014-slalom.  I think this review hits it dead-on.  If you want something more aggressive, the Racetiger Speedwall SL would probably be better. I didn't go that route for reasons outlined in the other thread.
