Slalom Ski for 12yo

My nephew is looking for a new Slalom ski. He's 12 and a touch over 100lb. He's proficient getting up on one. Not afraid to be aggressive cutting. He's a solid intermediate skier and progressing every time we go out.

Connelly Prodigy has my eye. Any others I should be looking at?

I used a deck board. At least compared to modern skis.
Listening in for recommendations for my kids too..

I would suggest the HO Omni. It covers a wide range of ability. Great for free skiing because of it's forgiveness but also can be very aggressive as well. I believe they make it in boys and girls specific graphics in size 65. Best of luck.
