I have a dilema.
Today I own Head Monster M75 with the chip from about 2004. They have served me well for many years, but I've found that I like to make quick agile turns and they are better suited for carving. I've also found them not as stable as I'd like(Maybe I should sharpen my edges occasionally)
I ski in upstate new york, smaller mountains where it's way more fun to be able to make lots of turns rather than bomb down the hill. I consider myself an intermediate-Advanced skiier. I only go 6-7 times a year
Last season I Demod a Head iSpeed Supershape and LOVED it. But it was too short(163 vs my 170 m75s), still I loved the agility, espec through the woods.
these are my questions:
The iSpeeds felt incredibly solid underfoot, and I could feel the ski reach the end of it's turn and when I needed to go into my next one, I dont get that feeling with my monsters. what causes this? is it just my skis not being sharpened as often as the demos?
What other skis should I consider? the iSpeeds are nice, but they may be a bit expensive, and maybe too much ski for me.
Do I really need new skis or would butting more maintenance into mine make the difference?
