My quiver last year included the Rossi B2 for use mostly off piste/hike-to terrain on trips to Utah and Colorado when there was no fresh snow for a few days. I already have Volkl 5*'s for hardpack and just picked up my new Mantras last night for pow and crud. Anyway, I have a credit of a couple of hundred dollars at the ski shop and I was thinking of replacing my B2's (113-76-103) with the AC3's (116-74-102). So, has anyone skied both? Similarities? Differences? I really like the B2's, but all in all prefer the longevity of a wood core ski (and a much-heralded new pair of Volkls!) and while I have the store credit...

(5'8", 160 lbs, advanced, looking for a ski that can both handle laid-back carving or aggressive downhill depending on the conditions)


Thanks in advance!
