Hello fellow NS'ers!
As the title explains I need some help with finding new skis. I currently own a pair of some delightful
Salomon Suspects, but things aren't heaven just yet. The reason I need new skis are due to two things.
The lenght of my current Suspects only measure 171cm which I believe is too short for me (I'm 6'2). I've
gotten some comments on my afterbang and having a tendancy to land on my ass when I land a trick a little too much on the tail. The problem is stability mainly. Secondly, the skis I have aren't what you would call durable. The Suspects I have (09-10 model) gets hammered quite easily and usually takes a beating on the edges. Therefore the skis are kinda worn out. I love the lightness of the Suspects and won't go with anything heavier. Also, remember the length of the skis, maybe 181cm is more suitable for me, or 176/178cm? So, the question is, should I go for this years model of the Suspects, don't know if the durability problem is fixed by Salomon? Or should I go for some other skis that aren't too heavy compared to them? Please let me know your thoughts, it would be much appreciated.
