Advice (Stockli, Dynastar, Head) [ISIA instructor training for BASI 4]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi folks,

I'm an ISIA qualified instructor and this coming season training towards my BASI 4 qualification. This place seems full of knowledgable people so I thought I'd ask for a bit of advice/experience with regards to skis I'm looking at for training.

I'm looking at a few possibilities - mostly dictated by available discounts wink.gif. They'll have to handle long and short turns, bumps and variable/chopped off piste (only a bit). I'm 5' 6" and about 155 pounds. I ski pretty aggressively and bumps are my weakest strand.

I'm looking at:
Stockli laser GS (non FIS) and maybe without race plates - opinions on flex welcome.

Dynastar version of the Rossignol Hero/gs Masters - I believe it's the Speed Course WC R20 Masters

Head World Cup rebel iSpeeds

Salomon X-race

I'm looking at all of these in 170 length and for the Salomons that means a 15m radius I believe.

Any opinions on the skis and experience from skiing them would be greatly appreciated. Particularly if they have been skied in bumps at all.

Here's just a quick vid from the guys who'll be training me. Should give you a slight insight of what will be expected from the skis.

Big thanks in advance!
