Demoed the 2014 Smoke ti today and really enjoyed it, but it was the end of the time slot and so only got two runs on it.
Me: 5'4 1/2" 118 lbs, advanced to baby expert skier
Looking to augment my Atomic Century skis that I love. Thought I'd look for an 'all mountain' ski and use the Centuries for powder, but after demoing a couple of "all mountain" front side leaning skis which were good, but not so much inspiring (Head Maya 8 and Atomic Affinity Storm) I tried the smoke ti. I really liked the way the smoke ti held and was so satiny smooth. But, I have always preferred a wood core ski and did not have a chance to take them into the trees or crud. (did try them in some medium bumps and they did just fine.)
So I'm wondering if ought to try the Blackeye ti as perhaps a more versatile and damp ski since it's wood core sidewall construction. Do you think it would be significantly "more" ski than the smoke, or could it work for a small lightweight person like me?
Also thinking of demoing the Head Supershape Titan as a similar (?) kind of ski. Any thoughts on that?
