Hi, I'm looking to get a new ski. It's going to be a one ski quiver pretty much, I only plan to bring out my Salomon Foils to bash off rocks.
I am 6'4", 160 lbs, ski as much trees, moguls and pow as possible (avoid as much groomed stuff as I can), and am pretty aggressive. I own 174 Foils right now, the skis I had before that were ~2004 1080's. I just like twintips for fooling around, but don't carve backwards or do rails or any of that park rat stuff. I am moving to BC for the winter, so there should be a good amount of pow days.
I need a ski that's pretty flexible given my weight, and I'd be comfortable on a ~185 set. I haven't demo'd any skis in a while, so I'm not sure what I will like out of the current line-ups. With my 85mm underfoot of my current skis, I can't float in 12" of pow, so I'm thinking that >100mm is what I shouuld be looking for.
Any ideas? I've heard good things about the Shogun and S7, but I feel like I'm crusin for a bruisin taking the marketing speak at face value.
ps: sorry for typos, firefox won't play nice with this forum's post maker, and I'm spoiled by its spellchecker.
