Embarking on buying my first pair of skis, I ski mainly northeast groomers, am advanced level, 6'1" and 210 lbs, any experience or advice re. Either skis... And any advice re. Bindings
All is much appreciated, Emad
I kinda agree with Shopgimp, while these are "nice" options, neither get my blood flowing either. You are a bigger guy so I think you might get more out of these skis than I did (I am not sure how big of a guy ShopGimp is) but I found them to be a bit lifeless. Between these two, I like the Rossi a bit better but not a fan of the system binding that comes with the ski, you have no choice here. The Salomon can be had flat and you can have options to what you want to put on it from the same brand Sth2 13 to a Look Pivot.
I demoed the Atomic Blackeye Ti last season and found it altogether boring. A friend also demoed it and thought the same thing. It is a good solid ski, good edge grip but no pop and no fun. The Atomic Vantage 90CTi was an entirely different story, plenty of pop, good edge grip, fun to ski and nice rebound. But I weigh 60 pounds less than you and 90mm might be a bit wide for eastern groomer skiing. The new Head Monster 88 might be a candidate as well as the Kastle MX83 and Elan Amphibio 84 XTi Fusion.
