I have skied on a Nordica Patron 185cm for awhile on slightly deeper days, and I have always found myself thinking that I wished there was a ~100mm waist ski in around a 180mm length that was slightly stiffer or heavier than the Patron--sort of like a skinnier Helldorado. Does this ski exist? Are there alternatives?
Love to ski steep tight trees, so I want a shorter and skinnier ski for that reason, but want something that can hit crud a bit better than the Patron. Looking around the internet, seems like the Moment PB&J might be the ticket, but I have a pair of Tahoes already and feel like they are a bit stiff for steep tree skiing. Also looked at the Soul Rider, but afraid it may be a bit soft like the Patron.
Are the PB&Js or Soul Rider the ticket? Other suggestions?
