Volkl Tigershark 10ft successor or similar ski

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

The title says it all - I am not able to find much information using google, so I was hoping maybe someone here has some insight. I have, and skied for the last 5 years or so a pair of Volkl Tigershark that is now breathing its last breaths... so I need a replacement. Does Volkl have a successor? Does any other manufacturer have a similar line?

thank you

Volkl Code S would be the replacement.

 

Lots of other brands build similar models. Look for terms like 'Frontside High Performance'.

wow, thanks a lot for the fast answer!

 

any ideea if the difference between the powerswitch and non-powerswitch versions of this ski is significant? I found a powerswitch in my preffered length at a good price, but mine is non-switch so I would like to know what's the difference when skiing them (I know what the switch is and what it does)

Similar would be one of Head Supershapes or Fischer Progressors.

I have skied the powerswitch on the tigershark 12's and I would prefer it over the non powerswitch.  I also have the tigershark 10's with no powerswitch and have skied the tigershark 12 with no powerswitch.  Tigershark 10 is a real turny ski you just think and it turns I prefer the tigershark 12 in a 175.

I'm in the same situation with Tigershark 10ft (no switch) 168cm from 2009 which I really enjoy.  The Volkl Code S look like a good replacement ski, so thanks for that information.  I'm 195lbs at 5'4" and believe I'm an advanced skier who mainly skis in the Midwest (Minnesota), so it's all frontside hardpack all the time; I typically ski short/med turns and working to better my carving technique.

 

I've also been looking at the following skis as options:

Head World Cup Rebels i.SL

Kastle MX83

Head i.Supershape Magnum

Volkl Racetiger SL Speedwall UVO

 

Should I go the "race ski" route (ie: World Cup Rebels i.SL or the Racetiger)?  And should I stick to around the 160cm +/- 5cm area for length.

 

Thanks for any input!
