I'm 42 years old, 5'9" and 165 lbs. Was a ski racer in college (slalom and GS) 20+ years ago and ski 10-15 days a year now, half in the US northeast, half out west. I still ski aggressively and spend most of the time going as fast as I possibly can on groomed runs carving big GS turns. I'm not afraid of speed. I will still jump in the moguls if the snow is not too hard. When out west, like to ski off-piste, steeps and back country. And, of course, powder if I get lucky.
I currently ski a 7 year old pair of Volkl G31 in 193 cm. I'm trying to decide between the Sultan 85 and the AC50. Size would be 177 or 178 cm.
Thanks for reading, and thanks for your replies.
