How would you compare the 2006 Supershape to the Nordica Mach 3 power and the Kastle RX

How would you compare the 2006 Supershape to the Nordica Mach 3 power and the new Kastle RX? Just as an example. I'm trying to find a replacement for my super shapes cause i love these ski's, and have read lots of reviews, but i need to compare one to another. I am looking for a ski that is similar if a little stiffer, but one that is still a carver all the way. As all my skiing is in the east on...ehm..."hardpack"

All good skis, the Power is more ski, and more powerful too.  The Supershape is a noodle compared to the Power, the regular Mach 3 is more comparable to the Supershape.  The Speed compares to the Power (1200 SW in 2006). The Power is for either bigger guys or very skilled skiers: it is as close to a powerhouse race ski as I have skied (that wasn't an actual race ski or race carver).  I haven't skied the RX, but if it anything like other Kastle's, it is exceptionally smooth while still having above-average energy and a sublime ride quality.  If you are open to suggestions, the Head Supershape Magnum, Dynastar 4x4, and Fischer Progressor are worth checking out.  You might also find the Blizzard SLR IQ in a longer length fits the do-everything at high speed bill.

Thanks so much for the reply. Those all look like great skis. I'm also checking out the stockli laser sc. I want i ski that is stiffer and more powerful than my supershape but still likes to make short turns.
