So I have been looking into getting a new pair of skis, I am currently riding the Coomback skis 188. I like the skis for how they float and how light they are, but I am realizing they suck for going fast, not stiff enough. (I know they are new, I am going to be selling them) I like to ride hard and fast and turn very little. So I have been looking at the K2 Sidestash's and Black Diamond Zealot's. I want a stiff ski that has some type of rocker and has a waist between 100-110. I tend to ski 50/50 in bounds and out, which I prefer point them straight down the mountain and doing long wide turns. Which I know the Zealot's would do fine for this, but I somtimes end up in the trees and need a ski I can force into some tighter turns. Also I would like to try and stay somewhat light and now have skis that are like all mountain skis, I dont want to die on the first tour. I am about 190 to 200 Ib and 6'0" What do you guys recommend? Any other skis I should look at? What do you think on length, 192 can be a bit long I would think?
