New to the forum and have seen a lot of great responses to questions so I thought I'd give it a shot.
I'm mid 40s and a pretty decent skier. I wouldn't call myself an expert but a strong advanced skier that can ski pretty much any terrain. I'm season pass holder at Sunday River.
I've been skiing K2 Apache Recons for the past 3 years and they've been a great all mountain ski. I can pretty much do anything in this ski and have enjoyed the ride. But, I'm looking for something a little more aggressive - the K2s are good at everything but not great at any one thing.
I brought them in to my ski shop for a tune up and my ski guy showed me the Volkl Tigershark 11 with the Powerswitch. He thought this would be a great ski for my on the groomers to get that extra speed and turn that I'm looking for. I also noticed that they're not that much thinner than my K2 (75mm vs 78mm).
My question to you all is what should I expect moving from the K2 Recon to the Tigershark 11?
Should I keep the Recons for the softer powder days (not that we get many days like that at Sunday River)?
Any feedback on the differences between these two skis would be greatly appreciated.
