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
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!
