Looking for an eastern carver to upgrade from some Atomic Metron 7 156cm that I bought out of financial necessity/stupidity last year and just aren't cutting it at all.
I'm 5'6" (So 167cm) tall, 165#, Level 7 who sticks to PA blacks. I wouldn't call myself super aggressive... I'm looking for something that's fun to ski but that I can push when necessary.
Been talking with Dawg here about some different models, and among his suggestions were the Tigershark 10' 161 and Head SS Magnum 160. I'm a little concerned that the Magnum might be too much ski for me (seems like heavier people like it more) and that the TS10 might be stiffer than I want.
Additionally, my local shop is trying to sell me 2009 K2 Apache Crossfire 165, but I can't find much at all about that ski on here.
Any opinions would be appreciated.
