Head 1400/Fisher RX8/Rossignol R9X question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
You guys have through another thread, taught me that my new Atomic 11B5s are the wrong ski. I ski mostly hard groomed and ice on a tiny hill. My first ski (last year) was a Rossignol VS1 Oversize and I LOVED it. I bought it used and there's no edge left on it.
Through your feedback I've learned that I like to ski neutral and technical (much like my water skiing). Based on this, you've told me that Atomic and Head want more forward pressure or power than I enjoy. Accordingly I've removed the supershape from my replacement list and am down to three skis. The Head 1400 Chip in a 170 (am told they are 'softer?) and the Fischer RX8 FTI and finally the Rossignol R9X TI. I would appreciate your feedback on these. I'm 6' 200lbs with tired knees after rugby and goaltending in ice hockey.
Thanks kindly

Probably the oversize Rossi would be your choice. there is a significant similarity between your old rossis and these. For my opinion, the Fischer is too lively.

I second the opinion on the Rossis. They will be the most forgiving and will allow you to ski neutral and still work the skis.
