would appreciate input. 173cm 130lb male. plan on doing very unserious racing as well as skiing groomed and if I'm lucky a bit off-piste.

Where do you ski, and how unserious? Nastar?

I would probably rule out #1 & #3 as being too exclusively focused on long fast turns on hard snow. And I'd rule out #5 as being too wide and noodly for the race course. Of the remaining skis I'd pick the Blizzard. Great turny hardpack ski that doesn't require that the hill be devoid of other people. If I wanted something more all mountain, at our size I would get something softer than the Nordica but with more oomph than the K2 is reputed to have.
