Advice pls...skis needed, Volkls or ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Preview 5'9" 165 31yo with about 90% of my time spent in Quebec on-piste (albeit lots of trees and moguls), sometimes out west but no tele. I teach regular and freestyle (have Dynamic twins already) so know my stuff, but am more on the advanced than expert side for being a bit lazy or hungover most weekends.

Last four years my main sticks were Volkl Vertigo G3 167s, they were very nice for my needs: stiff for the crud and ice of which we have lots, short for the bumps and trees, good sidecut for the turns and teaching.

I'd like to stick with Volkl or something similar, and am now in the market if anyone has either advice or something to sell. Currently considering Explosivs (163), B3s (178), 1080s (171)...don't like buying without trying, but trust good opinions. Anyone?

First, this belongs in the ski gear discussion forum, not ski swap. You won't get as many responses here. When you post be clear about what you want for your next ski. The V-Explosiv (discontinued), B3, and 1080s are all wider skis and not ideal for the icy conditions in your area; why these? I think you would be happier on a Volkl AC4 or even AC3, possibly the Allstar or 5 Star in the Supersport series. The Atomic Metron series, especially B5 might be good too.

If you liked the G3's why not go for the New Volkl Unlimited AC-3.
