I am 67 used to rip. Now just try to rip - still can once in awhile. Looking for a poppy but sorta damp super carvers - has been racer, old man performance skis.
Have always been a Rossi & Dynastar fan back to the Strato 102 & 105 and the Gold colored Courses with the red anti vib fob on shovels.
I am on hand me down rossi MT TIs 175 R15 & ST TIs 172 R14. I particularly like the MT TI but would like something with a little more punch, close to the ST in responsiveness & SR performance.
I tried a student / friends Dynastar 973 173cm R14 for a couple of hours this weekend and really liked them.
When I saw the Forzas they reminded me of the old short lived Dynastar CR 74 & 78 Pros
The Dynastar CR78 Pro is a serious ski for serious skiers. They scored the very highest marks on our 2013 on snow ski test for groomed runs and feel like they could take you down any piste at any speed. Race technology is now accessable for all and these skis certainly make you feel like racing.
I never skied them, I was out of commission for family medical, but had couple of student/friends with them and they loved them. I think the Dynastar graphics white/blue for the 74 and black for the 78 are more classy than the Rossi.
I hope Dynastar brings the CR back with the Forzas's super side cut but Dynastars 963 build
