Title says it all, K2 Recon's or Volkl AC 30's ? And Why?
K2 Recon's or Volkl AC 30's for a Blue to Black diamond skier that considers himself intermediate and wants more control and comfort on both groomers & powder
Gear mentioned in this thread:
years skiing: 8
what runs: mostly blue diamonds, a few blacks, also like to jump off main trail and ski some fresh powder every once in awhile
where do I ski: twice a year east coast (Vermont), twice a year in the West (Utah, Jackson Hole, Tahoe, etc)
budget: around $500 give or take, looking for a used ski (demo, etc)
Overall I would consider myself a good skier, that tries to keep up with my brother in law which is an expert. I really need a ski that gives me that extra comfort, and truely makes me a better skier on those tougher runs, and when we hop off in to the trees & powder Something that will give me ultimate control.
I've heard nothing but good about the new AC30's, but I don't think the old ones would suit you. Volkls in general can be pretty demanding. I'd say go with the Recons, as they are very fun and forgiving, and something you can improve your skills on. You might wanna consider something even a little bit lower on the skill level-totem pole so to speak, if you only ski like 4 times a year and are only an intermediate.
