Hey everybody. I am buying a new race ski and I can't decide on weather I should buy the Fischer WorldCup SC, Fischer Race SC, or Atomic SL9. I am 16 years old 5'11" and 140 pounds.

I ski the '03/'04 Fischer Worldcup SC in 160cm and I think it's a howling bitch of a ski, can toss off high-rebound turns like anyone's imagination, and if you're not on the money, you will get pitched off the sticks like an unwanted stepsister.
As to "hard to ski" of course it is, it's not a Newby Fred ski. Jeezus. Some people really need to re-grip reality, eh? A good skier of Level 7 or higher should be able to handle it. Below Level 7? Get a dumbed-down version like the Race SC.
I say go for the WC SC, it's always in estrus.
