I am looking for a hard snow narrow ski for improving my technique. I will ski these skis mostly on indoor slopes here in the Netherlands and on the glaciers in Austria in the fall, purely for the purpose of improving my technique. They will not be my everyday ski (I have Fischer Ranger 88 TI's for that, and soon probably the Fischer Motive 86 too).
I'm a level 7 skier wanting to improve technically. I'm 1,82 (6') and 85 kg.
Anyway... I have skied the 2011 Blizzard G-force Supersonic IQ in 167, 2015 Salomon X-Kart Max in 164, 2015 Atomic Redster Double Deck 3.0 SL in 165 and the GS in 172.
The G-force I found just lacking in rebound and agressiveness - for me, they fall in the category of the Atomic Redster Edge series: good ski, but just not the energy I am looking for.
The Salomon: great grip and nice rebound, but a little wobble where the tip rocker meets the camber part of the ski, making it very weird having to push through that point to really get into the turn.
The Atomics felt great in every sense but one: the radius. The SL has a tight radius (11,5 m), which means a very high frequency of movement - a bit too much for my taste. The GS has a 17,5 m radus, a bit too wide for what I want and the narrow-ish slopes I will be skiing with them (and not too steep eigther, so I won't be able to carve them all the way through the turn).
Having experienced all this, I guess I am looking for a 170-ish race ski with a ~14 m radius.
Question 1: I can find great deals on the Fischer RC4 Superior SC in 165 or 170. Seems to have the right radius (14 and 14.5 m, respectively) and I love the Fischer feel. But will I experience the same lack of energy as I did with the G-force Supersonics? Given the fact that the RC4 Superiors also have a more sophisticated series - the RC4 Worldcups - above them?
Question 2: There is also the Blizzard SRC Racing S that seems to be what I want. I won't be able to demo though. Would these be a contender as well? What skis that I have skied (see above) would they best compare to?
Thanks for your thoughts.
