What up everyone,
I'm looking to replace my daily driver for Colorado skiing, skiing the bowls at Vail is my favorite thing to ride. I'm 6' 0" 160 and I like to ride fast, jump moguls, straight line, catch air and do big slalom style turns on groomers. Skiing forward is my focus. Obviously tree's are fun, but they are not my focus for this ski purchase. I use 190 Armada Magic J's for deep powder and tree skiing, and I love them.
Currently my daily driver is the 2010 189 K2 Obsethed (red/blue totem pole graphics) Kick ass ski, but it is quite heavy, and I think the rocker profile is quite dated. Also this ski is truly a 194cm ski because k2 measured from contact point to contact point that year.
I think the 15/16 192cm Candide 3.0's would be an awesome choice due the 26m turn radius and the fact that this ski is superlight, lighter than the 2.0 even.
Has anyone skiied the 192 or 186 3.0's or the wrenegade 112's, and could give me their thoughts?
I also considered the faction chapter 106's and the kartel 106's, but I don't think they are as much of a stable speed and carving demon that I am looking for compared to these.
Also if their are other skis you think would be a better choice, post it up.
