Seeking some input on the Nordica Dobermann Spitfire Pro (not the EDT version).
Male, 6', 175lbs
Aspiring to pass the level 3 on firm/boilerplate eastern conditions on piste and in bumps (likely in Quebec). Last year I got the "wait until next year" from the course conductors - so maybe this is the year.
Can ski aggressively/confidently on soft-to-firm snow; tend to fall apart and ski at moderate speed on ice.
Because of the ice conditions in the east, softer skis are out (e.g. the Integrale 009 and the Peak 82 noodle out on ice). I like the edge grip, stiffness and responsiveness of the Dynastar WC SL, but have trouble with it in bumps where the stiffness makes bumps feel jarring.
How does the Nordica Dobermann Spitfire Pro compare to the Head Titan? (That's a ski I really enjoy.)
I'm targeting the Spitfire Pro because I can get a really good price on it. The EDT model isn't available at the same amazing price. Or should I just bite the bullet and spend the extra $150 for the Titans?
