I have a pair of 177 K2 Apache Recons. They have worked well for me (6'1", 190#) at speed down blue and black groomers, but since I bought them I have begun to ski much more in the bumps. I am learning to ski moguls with a series of short, quick turns, side slipping and trying to stay on the tops and straight down the fall line with no traversing. Lately I have begun to realize the Recons seem heavy and difficult to swing. They also seem too stiff in the bumps.
So I have begun looking at some other skis that might work better for me in the bumps and in deep, soft snow. To help me make short, quick turns I think shorter (170) and lighter skis with some rocker, front and rear, would help. The rocker would also help in deep, soft snow.
Several that I am considering are:
K2 Kung Fuja
K2 Shreditor 102
Fischer Big Stix 98
Head Venturi 95
Am I headed in the right direction? What skis would you recommend?
