I currently own a pair of 164 cm 2013 K2 Recoils w/ Squire Schizo bindings but am looking to add another pair of skis (and bindings) to the collection. The Recoils are big skis on me; sitting an inch or two above my head, and are a great all around ski for some of the rougher snow that I deal with in East Coast conditions. However I've noticed over the past couple of years that while very solid the Recoils are pretty heavy and the extra length makes them extremely difficult to control in tight situations.
I currently live in Arizona for almost half the year and with the access to the Rockies close by I'm trying to get another pair of skis. I've done some research but I'm having some difficulty finding some lightweight twin tips that I like. I'm a small guy and decently advanced skier but am looking for some lightweight, responsive, all mountain twin tips in the shorter range of 155-159 cm. Anybody have any suggestions on models to look at?
Also any suggestions on lightweight, responsive bindings to go along with the skis?
