so i have posted here a few times on what kind of ski i should buy. With bountiful sales to be had by just about anybody here in th PNW, i think its time to buy a ski. I have narrowed my choices. Quick recap on how i ski:
6' 3", 245, advanced to expert, looking for a mid-fat to fat that is good in steeps yet enough stiffness and sidecut for "speeding down the end of the run on the cat-track" speed. Also has to be decent in the crud and ice, which is always here in Washington. Skiing restrictivley in the West (Whistler, Mt. Baker, Alpental, Crystal). Oh, and a twin-tip is just too enticing to not have for messing around on bad snow days, so that is a must...here are my options:

Atomic AFT Stomp 186cm (awesome deal, only reason)
K2 Seth Pistol 179 or 189cm
Volkl Gotama 183 or 190cm?
Rossignol Bandit B3 185cm
K2 Apache Chief 188cm

ok so i didnt narrow it that much, but i need help with some people that have skiid these planks. Anything would help, whether you hated it or loved. Muchas Gracias!
