Looking for a possible complementary ski for what I currently own.
I'm a terrible skier. Started with Dynafit Stokes recommended by a buddy. They climb well, at least for me. Descend - well no idea as I'm not a great skier.
Last year I picked up some used DPS Wailer 112RP skis (w dynafit radical bindings). For me they make skiing easier as turning is very easy and make me more confident going down. Full rocker, great for my slow speed and low confidence, gives terrible grip (compared to) my Stokes on icy side climbs (no confidence - I put on ski crampons when I use to wonder why I carried them before for my Stokes) and even boot when I feel really sketched.
So is there a compromise out there? Although the rockered tail makes switches sometimes difficult my biggest problem is edging along icier steep terrain - rockered skis have very short points of grip while full camber uses the tip and tail for grip spreading the load (much like wide vs narrow grip chin ups). However full rocker are great for me for skiing (rather than climbing), way more fun, way more confident. I ski slow, not likely to ever ski fast.
Suggestions? I can research specific options people mention. Thanx. Pray for snow!
