What is the best ski to move to after skiing on a older ski

Hello I have been skiing on a Goode 9100 for about three years now and I am thinking about upgrading. Does anyone have any good suggestions???

    All I can say is try some. What is best for one is not best for another. I just received a new D3 ARC, which is right up my alley. But that may or may not be the right one for you. Others with more experience can maybe make some more specific suggestions. Happy shopping!

    @Jack_Haase yep, demo some and see what works. I am in the same boat to get a new ski also. I am a Radar fan, but am also gonna try a couple other brands as well. Those older Goode skis are old technology and have changed quite a bit now. Good luck!

    @Jack_Haase now that Goode is putting out the Nano One and N1XT, I'd try those out. They still have the feel of the old Goode's (9100) but sooooo refined, you'll wish you switched 5 years ago.

    I have an old friend that was getting into 38 on his vintage CDX. I saw him over the holidays and he upgraded to a Strada and loves it. I thought that was pretty amazing for a guy who is 67 years old still skiing 34 and runs 35, on old stuff. He just doesn't ski in tournaments.

    Just upgraded from my 9500 to an XT (couple years old). Familiar feel, much better performance.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    9100 is a pretty old ski, but is considered by many to be one of the best Goode ever made. If it isn't really broke down.

    Different preferences for different people, I chose a Rev 6. I previously used a Nano One. I have tried the new Nano XT

    @LeonL In about the past year I have grown a lot and have developed huge feet and the binding I have won't fit me Im in a size 15 for mens!! I wish it was easy as taking off the binding and putting them back on but its the second time I would have been drilling into the ski otherwise I would totally stick with the ski. Thanks for your advice tho.
