Had settled on the 10+ but having second thoughts. Posted a question on 10+ vs Blizzard G Power FS a month ago. Now wondering about the rest of the Progressor line.
I''m 43 years old, in good shape, small (150 lbs and 5'6"). I'm an ex-racer, East Coaster. I prefer short turns. I ski fast but, again, I'm light and probably more on the "finesse" rather than "power" end of the scale. I ski hard, about 30 days a year.
Was shying away from a pure race ski as I like to get into bumps and crud too, but the main thing I want is a relatively stiff carver with good agility and rebound, better at short than long turns. Looking at the Progressor line, it seems the 8+ may be the most agile and have the shortest turning radius, but I wonder if it's stiff enough to satisfy my carving needs. The 9+ seems to be more of a GS ski. The 10+ I can't really get good info on.
Does any one know of a shop near Killington or Okemo that demos the full Progressor line?
Will I lose much performance with the 8+?
Is the 10+ more agile/short turn oriented than the 9+?
Is the Blizzard G Power FS a better choice for my puropses? Any other suggestions?
