I am new to this forum and the whole blog-thing, but here it goes...

I have been skiing actively since age 4. Raced in HS and made state champion alt. in NJ (1987-scary). I am in the market for a new pair and doing some rec racing....Looking for opinions on a specific ski type...I skied the Head XRC 1200 ('07 model) at Alta several season back as a demo. I should have bought it! They were snow rockets. I am looking to buy this season and looking for a similar ski. I am 6'3" 210lbs, agressive, but probably not that strong in the legs...looking for a ski that is super fast on the groomers without chatter, but also lively, responsive, and fast edge to edge it tight turns. Must hold on ice. The skis I have been reviewing and demo-ing are as follows:

Head XRC 1200-sw (2006/07)
K2 Apache Crossfire
Fischer RC4
Volkl Cross Tiger


What skis have you skied (for these conditions) that got you totally fired up!!! Looking for suggestions to DEMO (and buy).

Thanks in advance!
