As I wrote in the above review, I prefer the SS. It is a solid carver and has no problem making any size turn including high speed biggies. But it makes much better short radius turns than the 1100 SW. I do not agree that the 1100SW is a good ski for mixing up the short and long.
Even though the 1100 SW has a "combi" sidecut (05' 15.4 @ 170cm - 06' about the same), it is a lot of work in the fall line. This is probably due to its flex pattern. Its a beefy ski. That's one reason why it is so good at high speed. Now the 06' version, the 1200, which I also tried, is a little lighter and livelier than the 05' 1100 SW, but it is still too much effort for sustained short radius turns or free skiing all day long compared to a ski like the Supershape. You can do it - I did all last year - but that's not what it is designed for.
The 1100SW/1200 is superb for ripping big arcs on steep groomers at ballistic speeds as long as your legs last (and yes, will be more comfortable on cat tracks and striaght run outs), but if you have to pick a ski for the day (rather than just a couple of all out blasts) , it is just not as versatile as the SS. Any Slalom ski will make a better short radius turn than the 1100SW/1200, but the beauty of the SS is that although it is not quite as stable and damp as the 1100SW/1200, it is sufficiently close while also being much better/easier when you do want smaller radius or lower speeds, and less exhausting in general.
