1080 Foil a good All Mountain ski?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am 27 yo male. 175 lbs, 6ft tall. I am looking for a good all mountain ski with a somewhat shorter turn radius. Oxy moron? I don't know. I like the Volkl AC4 but it is hard to find. It seems the 1080 Foil has similar dimensions. How does it compare. What length would be a good fit for me?

The Foil was a big improvement over the original 1080 in terms of all-mountain ability. It will not, however, feel really anything like the AC4. Its much softer flexing and is much less damp. The easiest way to explain it is that the AC4 is a groomer-oriented allmountain ski whereas the Foil is an off-piste oriented allmountain ski. You could really go either way as far as 174cm vs 182cm, just a question of smaller radius vs. extra stability.
