I am 185cm (6ft1) , 84kg. I just got myself the 2009/2010 Atomic Race SL Double Deck 170cm. The shop owner suggested that if I am an advanced skier I should get these as they are not too difficult to handle and that they are quite versatile - slalom skis that remain stable at higher speeds when doing GS turns (this is why I got the 170cm pair)
Initially I didn't intend to buy these but I got a great price and I did. Now I am reading some reviews and it appears that they are not that easy to handle at all and they are destined to competition level skiers.
I would consider myself an advanced intermediate/advanced skier and I am now worried that I got overly ambitious and will not be able to enjoy these skis. What do you think?
