Went to the shop today to look at fun skis for my son.
The sales person thought that the Rossignol S3 at 168 would be okay for him.
My son is 5'1" and about 100lbs. He race trains 6 days a week so he's pretty strong. However, looking at the Rossi's size chart this ski would be too big for him according to Rossi.
Here is a bit more about what he will be using this coming season (2010/2011) as far as race skis.
GS Atomic D2 GS 171 (Junior)
SC Atomic D2 SL 155 (Junior)
SG Haven't decided on brand but length about 192-195
DH maybe the same as the SG or if I get another big chunk of money 205s or so.
Boot size 23. Sole ~270mm. Flex ~90
The S3 seem it would be softer than any other ski he will be skiing on this coming year.
What do you guys think? Will it work for him? Any other recommendation? Yes, demo first I know. But his demo time is usually taken up by demoing race skis.
Thank you all.
