Hey guys I just decided to start racing GS for the first time. I want to get the best pair for me that I can handle and ski as fast as possible obviously.
38 years old. 5.6 feet and 154 lbs.(A bit chubby) Expert level, aggressive skier. Can handle any terrain and am a fast skier. My problem is that I have never raced. Plan to take some classes, get the feel, and race with guys in "beer league" I think the terrain will be "not the real deal" meaning NOT as steep as a usual GS race piste.
I am a long time Volkl fan so I'll ask within their range of skis. I appreciate any other brand/model recommendations as well.
Considering my abilities/age/size etc which ski and what size do you think I should get?
The real deal GS Stock World Cup http://www.volkl.com/skis/alpine/racing-skis/racetiger-speedwall-gs-r.html (Maybe a little shorter than pro racers use ?)
the SL stock World Cup with or without UVO http://www.volkl.com/skis/alpine/racetiger/racetiger-sl-race-stock-wc.html
