Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Original soul 7 upgrade

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Probably a different way of asking the same question a lot of people have asked but here goes....
Been using original soul 7’sfor last 4/5 seasons and need a little more edge grip for on piste when it gets hard packed. Last week it only snowed a few inches during the week and last days of the week I was fighting to hold an edge rather than enjoying the skiing on the steeper hard packed piste. I have used them for so long I am aware of their limitations but they are so much fun on soft groomers and also off piste.
Decided I need something that will give me a bit more edge when needed and my research is telling me to go to the HD soul 7 but thought I would put it out there before purchasing.

Reason why I enjoy the soul 7, fun, easy,forgiving ,not tiring,ski anywhere but caution needed on icy/very hard pack.
What I don’t want... a tiring ski, a very stiff ski, piste only ski
Me.. 5’9, 90kg, fairly aggressive skier, 50+weeks skiing, can’t be bothered with taking 2 types of ski and gave up with hiring many years ago.

There is massive choice available and I believe all skis now are good skis and it’s down to preference for most people. Some that I have looked at but not tried are head kore, Salomon QSt, blizzard rustler 10, Nordica enforcer and atomic vantage.

Thoughts from anyone, good or bad are appreciated.

I have a pair of the original Soul 7s, have only tried the HD indoors but didn't like them nearly as much.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Take your Soul 7s on your next trip and most of those on your list will probably be available in rental shops for you to try.

My wife got the Kastle FX 96 (W) for Xmas and has not taken out her Soul 7’s since. Much better in mixed conditions and on piste and doesn’t give up much in powder either.

You probably should consider the Whitedot (Delinquent) Altum 104 - all the fun of a funshape but with a bit of oomph when you need it.

Would have though BD Atris had more of the playful character @MogulMonkey, is after (than the Daemon)?

ive got the soul 7 HD, fantastic skis, hold edge on ice for me, rattle a little when fast flat out but not when carving, last new year 2018-2019 i did use my old piste skis because it was mainly just thin hard snow nd i had the option, however I did use them there for the first day and they were fine. Id not want them any softer than I have so goo for me. Im 88kg and fairy aggressive in carving, love them off piste, perform very well or well enough in crud.
