So I ebayed myself a pair of Stockli Stormrider Scot Schmidts in 188. I ski mostly on the East Coast and was looking for a ski that could do pretty much everything, something that I could use other than my race stock slaloms and GS that could do deeper snow and woods but still rip groomed. I'm a racer and coach, 5'8" 170 lbs. and loved the Head Monster iM 88s in 186 but found they could use a little more oomph on groomed. But the width and feel were pretty good. I got a decent price on the Stocklis but my worry is that I'm in over my head and that the skis won't do trees as well as the Head 88s. I found the Heads to be as nimble as I would need and quite forgiving. Is the Stockli similar to the Head but with a bit more energy or did I buy myself a beast? Can the Stocklis be thrown around as much as the Heads?
