The Senate C is the one staring me in the face right now...just want to make sure I'm not buying too much ski or that I'm wasting money with something that won't help at all.
sounds to me like you have already made your mind up on the Senate. For what it's worth, I am at a similar spot as you and ride a CoX. It is a very forgiving ski, real easy to turn and solid cross-course. At our level I believe it's more the indian and not the arrow that is the issue but hey, who doesn't love spending other peoples money
Buy the senate and enjoy it!
