Last year I was skining on Nordica's (Doberman and Hot Rod), Dynastars (Course 67) and Salomon (Tornado) and there is a big difference between French and Austrian skis (Nordica's factory is close enough to Austria).
Nordica makes great front side carving skis. Strong, great edge grip and good feedback.
Salomon's are light but lacking in edge grip. Dont inspire confidence at high speeds.
Dynastars - Similiar to Nordica but don't seem to have the same edge grip.
I've demoed several pairs of Rossi and I am always underwhelemed - damp and dead feeling.
Tried the Volkl Racetiger SL and while it was very stable and had strong edge grip, they didn't seem to have the same "pop" as the Doberman SL or Spitfires. Atomic SL was strong and stable, but lacking feedback (great edge grip).
For eastern frontside skiing, I prefere Nordicas. Good balance of energy, feedback, stablity and edge grip.
