Hi All -
Ex-racer here coming back from my second ACL surgery in a year. I normally run WC racestock slalom skis (and sometimes some racestock GS skis) but want to get a ski I can enjoy on both the east and west coast and take a little strain off of the repaired knee. I demoed the Soul 7s today in some good conditions and was able to rail some GS turns and really enjoyed them. East cost conditions, firm hardpack with a little loose stuff on top. Really ripped.
Anything else I should be looking at? I want a ski that's fat but can also tear around on hard stuff (even some ice with regular tuning) but float when I head to SLC or DEN. Looking for a smaller radius ski (which is why the Gotamas scare me - though I could handle the radius just fine just makes the east coast runs short and the narrow runs a little scary ha).
Expert Skier (ex slalom / gs racer)
Fischer WC150 Vacuum Boots
Soul 7 (demoed, had two great runs but expensive)
Fischer 108 Ti (expensive, sounds great)
Anything I'm missing?
