Hoping you could give me some recommendations for a new exam ski, I'm planning on taking my CSIA 3 and CSCF 2 development level this year.
I'm 5'10 180lbs, and have took all my previous exams on 165 Fischer RX8s, which I love, but I think I'm going to need something a bit stiffer, and it's also been suggested I get something with a larger turn radius to better demonstrate skills.
I also ski a lot on 182 Scott Punishers, but again they're a pretty small turn radius.
I'm in Fernie, so hopefully lots of soft snow / bumps this year, and not too much ice to deal with.
Was thinking maybe 172 Contact 4x4s, but any suggestions for other skis to watch gear swap for would be appreciated.
What are peoples thoughts on the progressor 8/9, how do they compare to rx8s?
