Looking for a GS cruiser or easy beer league cruiser and occasional NASTAR ski 17-19M for primarily long lazy swooping turns.Ski in the east on piste so it has to hold ice. Me, 67, 190lbs Level 8 on the groomers. Needs to fit my budget so generally I buy 2 or 3 years old. Found these at a good price.
Rossignol Radical 9GS CascadeTI box. 17.8 at 174 or would you go longer?
Volkl Speedwall GS 17.5 at 175
Atomic Redster D2 17.8 at 174
Blizzard Magnum 8.0 TI just to throw it in. 17 at 172.
I could ski any of these longer just dont know if I should as I do not want to work so hard I tire out. I can ski all of the below skis all day but I will say on the Tiger shark I do double the turns of the others.
All of these are around $4-600. Trying to understand what length if the ski has some rocker.
If you pick the Volkl or Atomic should I hold on and wait for the current models, Atomic redster 3.0 and Volkl Speedwall UVO? Are they better then the model before?
Please give me a size with you suggestion.
Currently in quiver
Volkl Tigershark 174 for small eastern hills
Volkl Kendo 177 for junk
Blizzard R Power 174 for eastern ice. Its just OK, not exciting to me. Dont know why!
