Head Venturi or Salomon Q90?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, Im currently searching for a new pair of Skis.

Some facts about myself first
-20 years old, arround 1,98m at ?80-90kg? without gear.
-No Problems on any piste, always trying to faster. ^^ At the moment im starting to work more on my off-piste skills.

-I ski arround 50%on piste 40%off-piste and 10%park (only a few jumps and drops).
The most important thing for me in a ski is that there is no flapping in higher speeds on piste.
However Im pretty used to the shovel comming up (my current skis are K2p Apache Rangers) too the point that i only have contact to the ground arround my feet.
Off-piste i obviously dont want to sink in, but im confident that this wont happen with any of the skies i chose.

Now too my favourites
As you can read in the title i got stuck on the Head Venturi and the Salomon Q90 (2013) .

The Venturi has the option of a 1.91m length. On the other hand i read a lot of different reviews about this ski, saying it acts like a noodle /saying it definitely doesnt and is a solid allrounder. Is there somebody with a personal experience about this ski?
About the skilength in generell i have to say that im not unathletic, however im pretty thin, so i dont have to have a ski above my height.

My alternative would be the Salomon Q90 (13/14). This ski got a lot of positive reviews, however i am a bit worried that 184 cm might be too small considering its rocker.

Is there anybody who has experience or can give me a tipp?

As a binding im looking forward on either getting a Griffon Schizo or a more solid S914 (STH2).

I also took into consideration Fischer Ranger 88 Ti 2015 and Automatic 102, but i dont think that i will have much fun with the automatic on piste.

Thank you and please excuse my bad english, im from germany;)

A better Salomon would be the Q-98. At that point, either the Venturi or the 98 would do the trick. The 188 in the Salomon, and 191 Venturi.
