please recommend size and brand of slalom and gs skiis for masters competitions.
i am on the smaller side, 5'10" and 160 lbs, experienced skier with racing background, but from 20 years ago.
just joined masters competitions and would need skiis te get me introduced back to gates again.
have tried coule of slaloms in 155, 160 and 165 size and have found that 165 felt too big (could not "spring"them with enough force in turns and thus were too heavy). on the other side, 155's were fine but a little bit too small meaning they would get twichy at higher speeds and in ruts. so the sweet size would probably be 160, +-2cm's
gs is black hole for me since i did not have those skis for ages. a little confused with all the lenghts and different radiuses. tried using sg's in 195 size (r=35) for gs, but i could not carve a single turn.
please recommend, fis rules aside (not checked at our competitions).
