Downhill performance : Ingstad vs Rossi BC 110 vs Raab 68
I own a pair of Ingstad with Alaska 75 that I like very much but when I go do « intensive » up and down with my friends I can feel the « limitations » of this ski (and even more important my limitations ) which at his core is a XC ski. Last week we were switching ski and I tried the wider underfoot BC 110 and I saw a big difference in my downhill « performance « but they felt really heavy compared to my Ingstad. I don’t really consider buying the Rossi 110 but I am using it as a compraison.
Lately I have been considering the Tindan but after reading Johnny’s comment I think this ski is not suited for most of my needs as I mostly ski around my farm and I have a lot to explore still (I have spotted some « tour for turn » spot around my farm or close). He suggested the FT 62 or the Raab and I have read extensively on those 2 skis ( actually I must have read the Raab thread at least 3 time ). I think that the FT underfoot is too slim (same as the Ingstad) and I wonder how I would feel on the Raab which is only slightly wider than the Ingstad. I am a bit scared of the speed of the Raab as I am already scared at how fast I can gain speed with the Ingstad... although I am getting SLOWLY better with some practice. I wonder how easier it is to control the speed of the Raab as compared to the Ingstad. I guess the Raab are way easier to turn sue in part to the different camber and also the rockered(?) tail. I have read that the Raab is not as effective as the FT 62 for the XC part but I am already well covered for that aspect with the Ingstad.
Thanks in advance for helping me through my reflexion
