You should be looking at carving skis. If you want a carving mid fat look at the Motive line from Fischer, Atomic D2 85, Nordica Fire Arrow.



As I metioned at the begining of my post all ski at retail are all mts(colorado at least). I will say that today they were somewhere around 200 pairs of skis for demos, only 3 were not all mts.

what can I do?

Interesting that most of what you tested and found was very similar to my own experience, except the K2 Charger, I did find them to be close with regards edge hold to the Blizzard G force provided you have your weight forward.

Testing skis is a lot of fun isn't it.

 

The Fischer Motive are very good skis as Backroom has mentioned, and even better next year.  Pics of next years on here. www.paulski.com.au

You were right about the Gforce. For the K2 charger they are not bad but I would like some thing more sharp.

It was my first time testing ski and yes I will definitely go for it again next year.

The bad is that I am not in great shape and was tired after 5 to 6 test while I had plenty more to go. I ll try to see if there will be one Demo in March (then my legs should be much stronger)

Thanks for the info.

Yes the market has gone all mt.,( there a shop here in NJ that only sells all mt., and powder skis. but carving skis are starting to back a come back. Fischer has 4 lines of skis in the carving class.

I have made my decision and bought

a pair of Atomic race SL 09/10 in 165

a pair of Atomic race GS 08/09 in 190

Both new I haven t tested the SL but from what Iheard i should be happy

will see

I miss spelled it was not the Race SL but the Race ST

this ski is awsome but don't try to go straight with it it's only good for turn.

But it turn really well and can handle the speed as long as you don't want to go straight

 

The GS is not the exact model I tested but somewhat similar.

I will say that at very high speed it handle the same but do not turn as good as the Race I tried

Replace them with my brand new pair of the same ski. I purchased them in 2006, used them 4 times... I'm a good skier but not as good as these skis; they kicked my butt. They are so fast it almost seems odd that a ski can move you so quickly down the hill. They are truly in perfect condition, the size is 161. I paid, $900.00 plus. $300.00 plus shipping would do me just fine

Yeah I'm sure he's interested in a "brand new" pair of used skis 20 cm shorter than he had.

People tend to be skeptical when a first post is selling something in a thread. Not only that, you posted a low res stock photo of a 4 year old ski, as if the guy who owns it doesn't know what it looks like. I highly doubt anyone skiing anything in 182 cm wants a 161 cm cheater GS ski.

Another choice if you can find them as they were discontinued is the Volkl Race Tiger RC. A sidecut in between an sl and gs . I have a pair in the 173 length and love them for fast cruising on hard snow. I also use them as my GS ski in the adult race program I am in.

I found a pair available here at a good price: http://www.alpinesportinggoods.com/browse.cfm/volkl-racetiger-rc-skis-w-marker-ipt-12.0-bindings-2010/4,12324.html

Good luck,

Actually, there is still a euro RC with a power switch.  ASOgear (not affiliated) on Ebay (also not affiliated) was selling it, but it may have been sold out.

It was a warm welcome.  If we knew you we would have really laid into you for trying to dump the wrong size ski on someone for well over market price.  (I paid $300 for a new pair of Superspeeds with piston race bindings 3 years ago.....I'd be lucky to get $200 and they're in pristine shape.)
