Thank, thank you very much. You really inspired me to search more. I checked Mantra already and because everybody are crazy about rockers and Mantra does not have it I leave that and search for something else.
More, I had the opportunity to test S3 and ......I did not like it at all. It was...ok in powder and fun and playful but rather for not experienced skier (or 4 beginners really).
To soft and in high speed it felt unstable. Not for me.
I have no doubt the Katana is just GREAT ski but as I am not experienced in powder I am not looking for such a gun shot ;)) - something more playfull. If I fall in love in freeride I will surely buy Katana as my 3-rd ski. (I still have my FIS edition GS ski).
I think Line is not available to buy here so i cannot think of it.
Blizzard The Answer looks great. I also like the Marker bindings. Does it have a rocker?
U also interested me in S6, unfortunately there is not much info and movies about this ski (lots of S7 but I do not want a gunshot as Katana and so S7). Please tell some more.
The last thing I woul like to add and I think that maybe this is what I need is something new - Salomon Shogun. What d'u think? (K2 Kung Fujas maybe?)
All the best for you and happy skiing.
