Mark, Thanks for your thoughts and guidance...
Mark, Thanks for your thoughts and guidance as that makes me lean toward Gotama. Any thoughts / experience / preference on Gotama vs. Salo Rocker 2 108?
Thanks in advance.
K - I find the Rocker2 108 to be way too soft for my preferences. I like a stiffer ski,and that particular Rocker2 felt very noodly to me (to be fair I took 3 runs on it at a demo day). I love the shape of the Rocker2 and prefer the tapered tip and tails to a more tradditional shape, but for me the stiffer flex on the Gotama is more important. Another ski that fits what you are suggesting is the Blizzard Cochise. Totally different (rockered tip instead of full rocker), but it is another great ski that charges. Worth a look...
