Hi everyone, I'm new here and I wanted to get some opinions on what racing ski would be appropriate for me.
First, some background info. I would classify myself as an accomplished racer, and I am 5'8" and 150lbs. I've been racing on Head Worldcup Rebels for the past two seasons. My first year with Head was very good. I loved my Heads (2013 155cm) that year but this year I got the 2014 160cm skis and I just couldn't get used to them. They just had little pop. (could this be because of the length difference even though I grew over the off season??) So for the remainder of the year I went back to my 155cm skis (which had already lost their pop the previous year).
So my question is what ski would be best for me? I'm looking for a ski that will have a lot of pop in them and allow me to get around a turn quick. I'm in Minnesota so we don't race in snow here, we race in ice so it needs to be able to hold an edge well too. I'm a little apprehensive about Atomics and Fischers as I've heard quite a few horror stories about delamination.
Thanks for your help!
