racing ski

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I just found this forum and really like it. I was wondering if I could get some opinions on my ski choice.

Im looking for an all mountain type ski that I can use to ski the next few years. I am intermediate level. The tricky part is I need a ski for slalom, GS, and just regular skiing. I am on the ski team at my college and this is what we do, but I can't afford more than one pair. Im not on the A or B team, so its more just recreational racing, so I don't necessarily need to follow the FIS rules.

The most important thing I want is something I can improve on, but will still be decent in performance for both races.

I am 5'10" - 5'11" 150 pounds. I think 170 cm will be the right length for SL and GS.

Currently my top picks are these:

Fischer RX-8 - obviously a favorite in this forum
Rossignol z9 - recommended by a friend
Atomic Metron B5 - many good reviews except people say its heavy
Atomic SX 11 - recommended by a friend

Some others may be:
Dynastar contact 11
Atomic izor 9:7
Fischer amc 76 - seemed really wide when I saw them in a shop.

So I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on these, or if you think there are some other ski's I should consider. I Appreciate the help.

I don't think you will have much luck finding a winner in GS that is also a winner in SL, though the Fischer WC SC in a 160 or 165 may come close for you. The SX11 isn't really meant for slalom; don't go over 160 in it if you plan on trying to do short quick turns. Why not get two skis? There are enough bargains around.
