I've got a 2006 HR Top Fuel in 178 cm w/ integrated bindings and plate.
The set up makes it a bit heavy when offpiste but quite similar to an RC (GS) ski on the groomed.
Again, being "only" 78 at the waist it can be a stretch to call it, nowadays, mid-fat.
Overall I'm very satisfied with it, it could be better in the trees, but in open off piste fields it holds its own.
Also, I'm not the indian I used to be, so I'm also part of the problem (in the trees I mean)
Which model years are these. I don't find the Top Fuel in the 2010-2011 line anymore, are they maybe 2009-2010 ?
All three are good all mountain skis, depending where you ski I'd go wider or narrower...170 is a tad too short fro my liking (unless in tree skiing I find myself thinking, at the shop I bought my HR there were in both lenghts, 178 and 170...had I had been a little more "corageous" I should have bought both...) as said thousand times, to each its own.
All said, I'd said that the Top Fuel are more 60-40 (or even 50-50) with the other two being across you traget of 70-30
But these are just my 2 cents.
Oh, in combination with which kind of boots do you intend to ski any of them?
As for the Rossis...I sincerly don't have enough infos on them to say something.

HR Top Fuel
HR Jet Fuel
HR After Burner
They also have the Rossi Avenger 82 Ti and carbon. Would they be a better option?
