Seems that this thread has quieted down quite a bit. I will try my best to keep it going. I am 5'8'', level 7 skier and am 160lbs...give or take a few pounds. I have been reading A LOT about the allstars and am quite confident that this ski will at least be in my top three list of skis to demo next year. I currently ski a pair of Volkl Carver V2's at 162cm. They are great skis but i find that they are not as stable at speed.(prob due to the fact that they are carver skis and want to turn) Anyway, I ski ONLY Northeast conditions, which mostly means hardpack, ice, crud, powder???, and everything in between. I am very encouraged that this ski has been labeled as "the ski for northeast conditions". I love to carve but, I want a ski that will be more versatile than just a pure carver. As the skimagazine website put it best, I want "A comfortable ride that doesn't talk back-but won't wimp out when you give it the spurs." This describes me perfectly. And another thing...I will be waiting until next year to get a new pair of skis. Any advice about the 07 allstars would be very helpful. You think the allstars will fit the bill? And at what length?
