A little about me
5'3", 115lbs, agressive skier
My every day ski is a 172 Pandora, I also have a 170 Blizzard Dakota, and BD Carbon Convert.
I just spent 5 days at Sun Valley skis on a Fischer World Cup GS ski (164cm with a 17m turn) and I loved it.
So now I'm in the market for a GS type carving ski
I am having trouble finding reviews by women and hoping to hear from some here.
I have narrowed it down to Stockli AX or SX or the Head Supershape line iSpeed or iRally
Please weigh in, and if you have another ski to toss in the mix i'm open for input.

The AX is going to be torsionally softer at the tip, taper at the tip! Very versatile. But not a super high horsepower type of ski. You should look at the SX as a GS type carver, or the SC. I have sold just one SC this year, no SX models, but having skied both, they are very, very good.
What about the Stockli Laser GS? I love that ski.
Progressor P900 is a great feeling ripping GS feel. Almost as stiff as the WC you were on.
Head Rally is softer than the P900, more of a mid-flex all-mountain carver. Great ski, but it is one that might get overpowered at top speeds.
Elan Waveflex GSX is a bad-ass ripper too. No top end on that ski.
I haven't skied the Atomic, I hear good things.
Personally, if I were looking at a carver, and $ wasn't an issue, I would get the SC. I would get the GS for a GS-style ski. Very versatile, incredibly stable and confident.
