I am a patrol here in the south east and I am looking for a wider ski for those random snow days where we get 6in to 2 ft. or when they are making snow. I have a set of Volkl S5 super sports in 168 that i love because it almost takes no effort at all to get them on edge and they hold on the narrow ice scatting rinks we call slopes here and i love the rebound they have. I am 6ft 220 lb with all my gear on would say i am a lower level expert. I am lacking some float that i need on those snow days where everything is open and poached lol I had been looking at a set of Nordica afterburners in 170 but have been interested buy the new volks AC50 and Grizzles with the wide bindings.. dose that help them get on edge better? how do they compare to the twin tips like the Mantra?
