I am looking to do some longer tours this winter, so I want to upgrade my AT skis to something lighter than what I'm on now. I've done some research and for what I can spend, I'm thinking I'll go with either the Black Diamond Converts or the Kastle TX107s. I am a bigger guy (6'3", 245lbs) and I'm not sure which ski will fare better for my size. I've hear Kastle typically has a stiffer ski, but is that going to be the only real difference between the two?
I live in the Front Range of CO, mostly skiing Jones and Berthoud, some RMNP and Indian Peaks. Thanks!
