seems like you are headed in the right direction, and I believe either ski would fit your intended purpose sam. I generally shy away from head skis because they come with tyrolia bindings and tend to have a lot of ramp (eg the heel pieces tend to be 5 and 6 mm taller than the toe pieces). according to my bio-stance analysis, at least in my current boots, a more moderate ramp of about 3 mm has me good and stacked on my skeleton in a neutral position.
there are several factor impacting a person's ideal ramp starting with their boots. if you're serious about pursuing Level III certification, it may warrant some consideration when purchasing a ski. in fact, due to this ramp business, we are probably seeing less "system skis" than we have in the past ten years or so to allow for some customization for the individual skier.
lotsa fun equipment out there to ride, this year I'm giving the new Rossignol Hero ST ti a try (the non-fis version).
Ogasakas look great! Trying to read a bit more about them but everythings in Japanese aha. I had been advised against buying skis in Japan as they were much more expensive there but I assume the Ogasakas would be cheaper since their made in Japan?
If so it would be great because I could try them before I buy which I wouldn't have the option to do with the others..
