Any recommendations? I don't want "fat frontside freeride" skis, I want 208 narrow carving skis that'll go faster than my GS boards. I'm not a masters champ but I like going fast midweek on empty trails.
Both my pairs of DH race skis have fairly thin edges. And racers do a bunch of filing so used skis are even more thin. There is no such thing as a race construction ski with fat edges like a twintip.
You may like these midfats:
With a vist plate, they will outrun a GS ski on normal trails.
You might also try seeking out a 201cm Stockli stormrider DP or Asteroid from the early-mid '00's. 35m sidecut, 91mm waist, full race construction, ponderous swing weight and absurdly stiff.
