ive been browing the threads alot over the last few weeks.
i currently own:
RX12 176 70mm for bulletproof days when no snowmaking or new snow.
MX83 173 83mm my day to day ski out east, good up to about 4-6"
FX94 176 94mm for heavier now days out east and no new snow days out west.
i primarily ski resort at killington/gore and im looking to complement what i have for my out west trips and when the east coast has heavy snow(hey it could happen). im 5'9" and 225lbs and advanced (and wants to get better) skier who likes to go fast but not bomber fast, ie i max out at 40-50mph. im not super in the tight hard bumps but like soft bumps and tree skiing as long as the pitch is not super extreme and tight. i rented Soul7s and Devastators last year and was looking for something with a little more float and the soul 7s werent super great in chop/crud. The Devastators seemed heavy and didnt offer much float in the deeper stuff. my ideal ski would have the following:
quick turning for tighter areas
stable at speed in tracked out conditions
i'll realize that these are sort of exclusive of each other but would hope something would come close
after some time ive narrowed my choices to the following in order of likelyhood unless someone has any other insight.
DPS Wailer 112 RP2 Hybrid 184 112
Moment Blister Pro 184 118
Blizzard Gunsmoke 186 114
Rossignol Super 7 188 116
ive heard good things about the RP2 being a bit more stiff and and they lowered the rocker a bit.
the moment blister seems to be popular at blistergear but they seem to be a little bit more skewed towards an more aggressive skier.
super 7 seemed good as i liked the soul 7s a lot just wanted more float and a little more dampness.
realskiers liked the gunsmokes but not sure overall .
Any comments on the selection or additionals skis i should be looking at?
im having analysis paralysis. :)
