$469 for the Progressor 8+ is a pretty good price if you do decide to go that way.  You would likely only get them cheaper if you bought a used pair from someone.

Wait till you see the 2011 models. Some nice radical improvements  with the intermediate skis! Will be testing some at Sugarloaf soon!

Too much work and I am not getting out to the hill as frequently as I would like to, is anyone else having this problem?.  Last weekend I got out late morning and there was some fresh snow, thinking it would be piled up by the time i got to the slope I took my Nordica HellDivers, more work to get them to turn quickly but I had a great day.  Yesterday I went out fairly early with my RX-8s with a mix of fresh and  Northeastern Hardpack.  The piles kept putting the brakes on, I found my self hunting for the skied off patches.  While I consider myself a decent skier, if I cant traverse piles of crud in the RX-8 (Which I was absolutely in love with until I bought the Nordicas, they gave new meaning to spring skiing which I always struggled with) perhaps I need a lesson, can't ski, or the new technology and wider under foot is a solution to an issue everyone has some issue with.  If I have enough speed on the RX-8s and hit crud while on edge they'll cut through it, but if I am moving slightly slower I feel like the snow snakes are calling however unsuccessful.

The RX-8 was my favorite ski for the last three seasons, but is quickly falling out of favor with me.  Perhaps because of lack of ability?  Frankly I would prefer an All Mountain ski that is snappier than my Nordica Helldivers, handles the hardpack like my RX-8s and makes it easier for me skiing through piles and crud.  I am hoping to try the Progressor 8s as I feel the 70+ waist might be the answer.  Manufacturers are going wider at the waist for a reason.  I could ski my HellDivers with the 90 waist just about year round, but would like something in the 70s with a tighter radius, a little lighter and a bit of snap.

Any other suggestions out there?

Ski fast and take chances.
