The skier: 6'3 225lb 21 years old, ex-racer
Equipment: Nordica Dobermann Aggressor 130 boots, old Nordica Dobermann SLR 165s with marker plate + binders
Location/Conditions : Taos and Angelfire, fresh groomed snow, pretty soft
I've been living in Texas for the past few years and don't get to ski as much as I used to or would like. My goal was powerful slalom-type turns in the freeski video, and obviously I'm trying to go fast in the gates.
My boots are new for this season, and I think I like the aggressor stance. I was coming from Dobermann WC 150s, and the Aggressors make bumps and offpiste skiing far more tolerable with the 130 flex. The trade-off is that I occasionally "bottom out" the flex in high-powered carved turns, but it's worth it IMO.
Any opinions are appreciated.
