Looking for ski between a Volant Gravity 68 and an Atomic SL9

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am a 6'0" 200# level 7ish skier who skis exclusively in colorado...because thats where I live. I have been skiing for 4 years about 20 days per year and boarded for 7 years before that. I ski mainly on-piste but am looking for a midfat(75ish) to venture off-piste....yet still carve very well....as good carving is what my main priority is.

My current quiver (worth mentioning) is a pair of Volant gravity 68's in 175 and a pair of Atomic SL:9's in a 170.

Volant Gravity 68: I ski this ski about 65% of the time and love the versatility of this ski. The flex seems a little soft but...so versatile. Edge hold could be better but I find it versatile.

Atomic SL9: I love this ski as well. Perhaps a bit more that my ability level but skiing this ski has taught me alot about technique and has made me a better skier. 'When' I am in my game, this ski has provided some of my best memories while skiing. The edge hold is so good but I would like just a tad less power.

I am looking for something between these two skis....a midfat(75mm) that carves somewhere between the two.

The metron M:10 in a 171 seems like the logical choice but I am willing to consider other options.

look in the 75-80 range. Ac4, Recon, Top Fuel, anything in that range will fill that void.
