Re: Advice on Volkl Aura & rocker

Thanks Jim. Yes, I did have a look at Midwif's review comments but was a bit unsure which ski she had actually tried (the Rave or Isis). Looks like it was probably the Isis. As for topsheet - that's an even harder decision than choosing a ski? ;D. Really liking the "Tiger" and "Flower Power" (I know, totally different!) but also some of the previous custom designs.

SnowHot - thanks, that's a big help and good to know it hasn't changed for the worse. If I do go for the Aura I think I'll wait and try to demo the 2012, much prefer the 2012 topsheet so this, combined with lack of demo possibilities, doesn't make the 30% saving worthwhile. Interesting you mention the Nemesis though, that's another one I'm toying with together with the Atomic Century.

Gary - thanks also, I definitley will go longer if I go for a rocker / early rise but might stick with shorter if traditional camber.

Will let you know what I decide!


If you're thinking of the Atomic Century, then you should put the Elysian on your demo list.  When I did the 2012 ski tests, The Atomic Elysian was my #2 pick in its class, just behind the Blizzard Black Pearl.
I don't have all my reviews up, but will get some in order soon.
Sometimes you just need to let your Bad Self ski!!
