Volkl RTM 81 15/16 or Head iSupershape Titan 15/16 [intermediate in Europe]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Intermediate / 202lbs / 5'7

Need some advice on which ski to buy. I have an option to buy one of these two (Volkl RTM 81 15/16 or Head Supershape Titan 15/16) for a really good price but i can't decide which one.

I am skiing 80-90% frontside and 10-20% out of piste mostly in Europe.

 

What recommendations would you give me (including ski height, etc)? Thanks.

RTM is a bit more nimble. Both are versatile and good on hard snow, in crud and in moderately deep snow. Similar in many ways. Both are very good skis. Size matters. The 170-length RTM is much more playful than the 177 length, for instance. The 177 is rock solid in longer turns, not much fun in bumps and trees for someone my size (160 lbs.). For someone your size, the longer length would likely be perfect.

The Head Titan in the 170 is going to be about your head height. As mainly a piste ski for an intermediate skier, you don't need any more than that, the 170 is going to be much more fun. I'm 184 cm, 210 lbs, and I've skied the 177 for the past few seasons. That's 7cm's shorter than my head height and is still all the ski I need. Can't comment on the Volkl.
