Don't bother with the search function or demoing or giving us any information about where/what you ski. One of the above two options will solve your problem.
Like he said but just to confuse you the Nordica Jetfuels may rock your world on and off piste also.
I skied the tornado and liked the Furry way better for me. I haven't skied my nordicas yet just bought them today. Try tomorrow.
You cant go wrong with Nordica and Head they are built to last!! If its way to light be careful what you get they may not last near as long. BTW thats my point of view anyway. I like wood core skis only. Ive been searching for two months many hours a day testing and interneting and it came down to the IM88 and the Nordica hot Rod series for best of both worlds. 50/50 or 60/40ish. Ice to powder low to mid 80,s waist with lots of side cut is the key IMO.
You wont find a bad review on the nordica Jet fuels with Titanium or the IM88 for that matter.
I must say though they are both on ridiculous year end sales right now so you better hurry they are almost all gone thats how good they are! $1100+ skis for 499-699 if you can find one.
