Hi, I am new to this post but saw some useful advice being exchanged so thought I would give it a try.
I am trying to decide whether to buy the Blackeye.. I only demoed it in a 157 (they didn't have the 164) out East.. I am a woman, 5'8 and 140 lbs. and am an advanced skiier. I have skiied all my life, my current ski is the Atomic Beta Carve 9.18. I tried the Seventh Heaven and thought they were too soft..
Do you think 157 is too short.. they were fun in the moguls, but I am wondering if I should be on a longer ski.
I tried the Volkl AC30 at 164 and they were not as good in the moguls, but felt much smoother..
Heading off to Sun Valley this week and was thinking of buying Blackeyes before I left... Thoughts?
Also, any comments on wood core vs. fiberglass?
