Next ski for me

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok so I am a 20 year-old level 7-8 skier 5'9" 135 lbs.

I ski 90% in the East skiing park and hard and fast on the groomers all day.

I have the park ski covered with my Troublemakers, but they are slowwwwww edge to edge, and being nearly center mounted, are a workout to carve all day.

I want to add a Supercross type ski to my stable, and I want an Atomic.
Right now, I am between 4:

'06-'07 SX Ti 161 cm
'06-'07 SX 9 158-161 cm
'05-'06 SX 11 160 cm
'04-'05 SX 10 160 cm

I've seen the SX Ti's in person and they feel STIFF. Is a guy my size going to be able to flex these things? Is this going to be a problem with my other choices?

I'd appreciate your input bears!

If you already decided to buy an Atomic, why ask us which year?

You're going to get bigger. (5'9" and 135 @ 20 will grow.)

Titanium rules for arcing, and it does not make skis stiffer as most assume. The non-titaniums will be just as stiff but will be lighter, more managable, yet... won't stick like the tititanium.

So- you want nimble or stickiness? Stickiness = titanium '06-07.
