The latter group would be better served with a cheater gs ski or as we call them Nastar skis. The Nastar skis depending on make and model come in a variety of flexes, length  comes into play also. Several of the guys are running the longest length Nastar gs ski their favorite brand comes in which generally gets them a 19m radius.  When people ask me about getting a longer radius ski I ask them how many times they wish their ski turned less vs how many times they got in a bind and wished it turned tighter. Another thing to consider is how much you enjoy skiing your gs skis, and I mean out of the course. I ski my Fischer wc rc's all the time unless we are running SL, they ski great in all conditions and being on the ski more often I feel makes me a more proficient racer on them.

 

  The skis that really interest me are 19m.  I have been told a lot of good things about Nordica Dobermann as well so want to test those out.  I was not suggesting getting another 25m + ski however my ski school director is on a 25m Fischer and swears by them.  He says they are easier to turn than most of the old 21m skis so I will be testing those out as well.  What ever I finally buy I can guarantee it will not be another FIS ski.  Done with those for now getting too old.

I've been here long enough to know you are not affiliated with Atomic.  I was joking around with SS, not you, about how he constantly is swapping out his gear for something cooler, e.g., a gear whore, as in, gear and getting paid for services. Most of us here are gear whores, IMHO. All good.

I must be either mercenary or fickle since I have never been exclusive to a brand all the time I have been racing....

I knew you know that !  :D

Actually I just found everyone really defensive about these skis and my review. Sort of figured atomicman loves atomics but didn't call him on it.

Ironic really when no one has probably been on the 3.0 17m version.
