    New Touring Ski

    Looking for a new touring ski; ideally 90-100 underfoot, profile similar to ON3P Kartels, around 178-182 and ideally under 1600g. Current quiver is Black Crows Orb Freebird and Kitten Factory Toors Lite. I ride a Kartel 116 in bounds, and with the mount point and a more relaxed, upright stance I sometimes find myself feeling a bit backseat on the Orbs if I'm not really riding the front of the ski as hard. Looking for something to suit a more upright stance like the Kartels. If anyone knows of any skis like this lemme know! Thanks mags!

    BD Route 95? I have skied the 105 version of the BD Route a couple times (one tour, one at the hill) and it's a very good all around ski. More of a flattish tail maybe than what you want, but BD has 2nds on sale: http://www.blackdiamondequipment.com...g.html#start=8

    I honestly would've recommended your other touring ski (Toors Lite)
