2007 Head XRC 1200, in what form do you think they reincarnated?

Hi all.

 

As a really satisfied owner of 2007 Head XRC 1200 in Lime Green, I was wondering

what ski would best replace them in the 2010 lineup.

 

Thank for any advice.

SuperShape Speed seems like the closest to me.

If you go outside Head, similar skis should be Fischer Progressor 9/10, Blizzard G-Force Supersonic or G Power, Nordica Speedmachine Mach 3, or maybe the Stockli Laser CX/SX.

Yep. Speak as a former 1200 owner. This is the SW 1200, basically, with some minute dimensional changes. However, grab a pair of last year's if you don't want KERS, which apparently changes the feel significantly.

From what I've read KERS powers up the tail of the ski when you're pressing on hard, but (supposedly) has less of an effect when you're in cruise mode.  Seems to work.

Thank you for the suggestions!
