Recereational GS Rossignol ski question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Very hard to find reviews of some of Rossi's skis so I need the help of couple experts.  

 

Prior to the Hero LT TI, their ski was the Radical 9GS TI.  I am trying to figure out if it was much different from the current Hero.  The dimensions are different.  I am wondering though if they ski similar.  I demoed the Hero LT TI, just a great ski.  But I am cheap.  There are some great deals on the older models though.  Not a lot of Heros out there, even less on sale.  

 

Thanks 

 

Pete

Some differences, from what I hear, nothing earthshaking. Slightly different torsion pattern, everyone's all hot and bothered about it. But the 9GS Ti was much admired too; go read reviews on Ski Canada, for instance. If you want to save $$, you need to inure yourself from This Season's Is a Game Changer discourse. ;)

Thanks.  Someone was trying to persuade  me into thinking that some major changes have taken place in the flex pattern of the ski.  I just can't imagine they would change that much from one year to the next.  I think the early rise in the tip is new, but I don't think that really matters much to me, at least not on hardpack or super smooth groomers.  I really liked the flex of the ski.  

 

I was considering the Fischer Superior RC as well because there are some great deals on it.  It sounded similar in construction and flex, although I am told the tail is stiffer.  Not being able to demo all of these skis is a bitch.  I just need to a nice "gs" ski that is toned down from World Cup RC.

Don't forget the Dynastar version as it is the same as the Rossi's

I did not know that.  Hmm, will have to take a look.  Thanks.
