Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

Playfull carver Line Blade or Head Supershape

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hello everyone,

I want to upgrade my former carving skis (K2 AMP 76 Ti Phantom 177cm) to something more capable, that could keep up with my progression on skiing. My weight is +250 lbs and height 6´3", level is something between intermediate and advanced and I'm quite aggressive skier. My main ski is now Line Chronic, I bought those this season to get some new perspective to skiing, and to practice my switch skiing, jibbing and balance. I ski mainly in Finland and here we have a bit of short slopes, so maybe it could be good to have tighter radius.

So what do you think, which pair of skis would be better choice to carving for me? Is there some other skis to consider? How close is Line Blade to chronics, would I get more if I get supershapes (E-Magnum)? Would the supershapes stiffer flex be better for my height, weight and aggressive skiing style?

Unfortunately I don't have opportunity to test either one of them, so your insight and thoughts would be most welcome.
