A few years back I decided to get more intense into my skiing(this was before even attempting the course) and took the approach of upgrading my ski from the current old school Kidder my dad had. We went with a 67.5" Sixam 2point..thinking it would span between the both of us enough. Little wider and a little longer to accomidate his extra lbs.
Possibly not the smartest choice for improving my skiing looking back at the first few, lets call them passes, through the course. But many lessons later, ski camps and time on the water I like to think my skiing is improving.
I am currently working towards 36 mph -28 off for this year(competitions is the end goal) and am sitting at 32 mph -15 off. Quick stats then..Weight:170-173lbs, Height: 5'11" PB end of last year was 35 -15
My question is then how you know when a ski is too much for you? I have been told to not get a ski which is beyond your capabilities, even mentions that the Sixam2point was too much.
That said, I recently tried out a 66" 2011 Strada and it felt incredibly more smooth and forgiving to me than the Sixam2 ever has. I was just wondering eveyones thoughts on this change to the strada then?
I have read the other forums of experiences from changing to the strada but somehow it doesnt settle the questions I have about my situation.
All opinions welcome
