Went to local ski store this past weekend to get some more Patagonia layers, and (of course) spent some time drooling over/on the skis. Told the sales guy what I have, how I ski, etc., and he recommended two options:
1. Volkl Tigershark 12 (without the switch), 168 cm for $600
2. Nordica Top Fuel, 170 cm, for $700
Are either of these a good deal for an end-of-season sale?
Are either of these what I need?
Or wait to see what comes out for 2010?
Me: 5'8" 150 lbs.; this season went from skiing 40/60 greens/blues to 30/70 blues/blacks (1d); almost all has been on piste; so far only dabbling in moguls, glades, parks, etc.
Current ski: Volkl AC-20, 163 cm; have had for a year; two weeks ago at Sugarloaf I seemed to be reaching the limits of this ski -- felt ski chattering a few times going down hardpack blacks.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
