i am 6'1" 210 pounds and in pretty good shape. (former hockey player)
most of the times i ski medium to long turns on hard pack snow or even on artificial snow.
at the moment i am skiing on a völkl racetiger worldcup sl in 165, which by the way is a really cool ski for my carving preferences, even though sometimes the radius could be a bit higher.
now i am looking for a ski which has superb carving performance, holds perfect on ice and has a wider turn radius (around 18m).
also i prefer skis that you feel on your legs and that you have to ski active.
my problem is that i would like a ski which i can use when there is a bit softer snow as in march and april or when there is new snow and the slope is not in perfect condition. i guess i have to get some wider skis.
i would be really happy if someone could give me any recommendation. is there any ski, that would fulfill my requirements or does this ski not exist and i have to get two skis. (if so, which two skis.)
i tested the nordica hot rod top fuel which i really liked. but this was a couple of years ago. so i am looking in that kind of direction.
i also tested the rossignol radical r9x which i think is not a great gs cheater ski but if you ski them in softer snow whith 80mm wide it was pretty cool. now i don't have any comparison to other skis.
thanks for any feedback and br,
i used to ski on atomic betaride 10.20...my first carver and a great all time ski.
then on head xrc 1100 worldcup which i did not like that much.
then i bought the fischer rx fire which in my opinion was one of the best carving skis (the real rx fire). it had the same construction then the fischer rc4 sc worldcup but with smaller radius.
and now i have the völkl racetiger wc sl.
additional i own a rossignol b2 in 190cm which i sometimes use in bumps and between trees.
