Maybe think about the Volkl Katanas and K2 Kung Fujas. They seem to have the right 'all round' fit for you [without knowing level, height, weight, depth of pockets, etc].

I'm looking at buying some skis when the sales on the last season start - has anyone got any input on some tried-and-tested models?
I'm looking for twin-tips because I love spinning / skiing switch.
Want an all-purpose ski that I can take onto powder but also get plenty of grip on pistes and hardpack..
The Salomon Twenty-Twelves have caught my eye, but they have a Rocker/Camber/Rocker, which I'm not familiar with, does anyone know what the vibration would be like using them? They seem like they'd give me good float but a nice contact for carving, but I just don't want the tips to be rattling up-and-down when going sub-sonic
Any suggestions on models / advice on RCR-shaped skis would be appreciated!
The K2s especially got some rave reviews from a few guys who used them in Canada last year for instructor training and freeride pratting about
I'm all about the Salmon BBR 8.9s though Sorely tempted to blow basically all my wages from my two weeks of teaching on a pair of them...
