Who likes to spend other peoples money? Then I need your help
I am looking for new ski's, after putting it off last year, when I should have gotten new ski's. I am 6 feet tall about 175 pounds and can ski suprisingly well for the ski's I rock in the conditions I like. Currently rolling a pair of Volkl P50's, 170 in lenghth, that I used to race in college. I really need to upgrade since my style of skiing has changed, but I have little to no problem hanging with fellow mags, despite my skis. But I do tend to sink a little in the fun stuff and that is all I want to ski, so I am looking for a ski that does excellent in the powder and not so bad in the other poop. I live in Colorado, plan to hike and pretty much chase snow storms on the weekends.
I was thinking about ski's in the 180-190cm range.
Here is what I have been looking at:
Kneissl Flexon tanker

Conical studded rivets and anarchist graphics transform attitude into gratitude: Thank you Seth for keeping this one real.

Reach for an AFT signature model, and begin the search for you temple today. The lightest powder ski on the market, the Sugar Daddy Boasts Beta 4 construction to rip on crud and packed transitions too. Now anyone can ski powder like a pro!
Beta 4 Profile, UHMW Electra graphite base, Dura Edge
Radius: 28m@173cm, Dimensions: 123-97-115@28m in 163, 173, 183
Also if there are other ski's you think I should check out let me know. Bag told me, not to count out the Dynastar Legend 8800. Please, help me spend my money.
If you know of any deals, please pass them my way cause I am a relatively recent college grad, that is still strugling to get by in the real world. You know, it pisses me off that I used to make more money delivering pizza in college than I make at my real job with no experience. At least then I had my days free to ride bikes and ski. Damn the MAN.
Oh and I haven't even begun looking for bindings either, so I am open to your suggestions. Your 2 cents will be greatly appreciated.

pistols are cool.
Flexed some in a shop last week. Medium flex in the tip and firm under foot and in the tail. I like a firm tail.

Are the T@nkers Uber stiff, or just kinda stiff? The stiffest I've skied is the G41, how would it compare? I'm not in the market, just curious.Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.
