I'm on Volkl 6 stars right now and I love them, but i'm not brand loyal...before them I was on Rossi's. Elan's K2's and Volants at one point or another.

I am on Volkl 6 stars. They are absolutely perfect for the way I like to ski. Lots of fast carving.

Atomic 10:ex's with Freerides.
K2 Axis gathering dust; was supposed to be my rock ski, but b/c setups are always rock skis, so we'll have to see what becomes of them.

Female, 5'4", ex-racer

All-mountain/fun ski/GS race: 2003-2004 K2 Axis XR 160cm, Marker M51 adjustable bindings with 11cm integrated lifter

Open GS race/Super G race: 1995ish Rossi Energy 9something 178cm, 11cm lifter and some random 1990s bindings

Rock skis: Base bubbled 1995ish Rossi Energy 9something 178cm, M51 bindings

Salmon skis: 1997ish Rossi 9s 183cm (yup waaaaay to long)

I just got the K2s and absolutely love them. I haven't demoed any of the skis from the last 4-5 years, so I don't have much to compare it to... but these are great. Amazing to just have skis the "right" length. The K2 are easy to bend and have some decent rebound, but are not soft or hard by any means. The Rossi Energys are med-soft for a high performance ski and can give a good kick, but you have to load them up considerably to get it.

6'1" 205

I currently have 2 active sets and one Rock
167 Rossi RPM 100 - Great all MTN ski that will go anywhere I want and floats OK

158 Rossi 9s Racing - this is a super stiff turny little bugger. Fantastic fun on groomers, short carve through bumps, generally very fun ski. Worthless in powder

My Rocks are a 180 Salomon Crossmax 10 pilot. Also a great go anywhere ski but have seen better days.
