Quick question before I pull the trigger on some new Heads: Between the Rally and Titan - in a 163, am I really going to be able to tell the difference?
I have read all the reviews, here, PSIA, looked them over in the shop - If you buy some Titans from Pepi's, and there's a little drool on them, sorry. I just can't seem to make a decision between the two. FYI: I am looking for the one that is going to give me the most utility - a Swiss Army knife of sorts.
About Me: 44 yr old male. Vail local, skiing Vail/BC 100+ days a season. Part-time Instructor. Have powder skis - Icelantic Nomad 115's. This would be my first "real" ski in 20+ years. This would round out a 2 ski quiver. Like I said, looking for the proverbial Swiss Army knife.
I went for the Titan specifically because I felt it had more versatility for varied local conditions where we can get all seasons in one day. Just felt that bit more 'robust' and able to deal with chopped up crud/slush/pow more readily than the Rally. It's also the kind of ski where you don't need to be all over it all the time. Felt it had reasonable foregiveness.
The other reason was it suited my preference for slightly longer radius turns, though they are no slouches when you really work them hard for shorter radius.
The Titans and Bonafides are the staples of my quiver. A perfect couple for my needs.
