Skier: Boy 16, 160 lbs, advanced intermediate.
Found the Tecnica Mach 1 110 the best fit and flex. $430 (with coupon) seems too risky for me because of possibility of growth. Is there a comparative older model that would be a similar fit? I know it is risky to shop on-line as well. I am trying to exercise good judgement and patience. My son's patience will definitely run out when the mountains are open. I would be a lot more at ease with as high as $300.
