What's up NS,
Templating the gear recommendation example:
Hello, my name is Ian and I ski in the The Rocky Mountains (Utah primarily, but plan to get out to CO, WY etc.). I am an ADVANCE TYPE 3+ SKIER (ability level) that skis everything. But, what I'm looking for in this future pair of skis is a ski that's going to do well all-mountain and in some deeper softer snow with a lot of potential in the park. I am 23, 5'11, 155 pounds and my budget is (preferably) no more than $600 without bindings.
I'm coming from Faction Prodigy 2.0's 183cm (98 mm underfoot) and I love them to death. They're getting pretty beat up from the park but still have plenty of life in them. I want a fallback I can use in the park in case they STB but primarily want something that will handle a little more all mountain.
I'm currently looking at Faction Candide 2.0s 183cm (102mm underfoot) for the true twin & wider waist but I'm a little worried about going for something stiffer and almost a 1pd heavier than the Prodigy for park purposes. I'm also tempted by Line Blends (for something with more flex) but they definitely don't seem to have the same charge potential so def second on the list.
Any thoughts on what the best move might be would be super appreciated as would any recommendations outside of what I'm already looking for!
