A2 or S2?

I am in the market for a new slalom ski and haven't been in the market for a while. I don't have a course but visit them from time to time. I am a 34-36 mph skier. I am considering the A2 and the S2 from HO. I cannot seem to find any demo programs in eastern PA so i thought this board could provide some insight. Any thoughts?

A3 is the new version of the A2 and it is getting great reviews.

You'll find detailed reviews of several skis on BOS; also, "search" their general forum for more recent comments...mac

S2 is the first ski I have had that seems to do everything right for me - really enjoy skiing on it and no weird wrecks. Going to stay on it this year.

Thank you for the feedback everyone. I'm leaning toward S2 right now.

Great ski - but if your open water free ski most of time - why an S2? I know it's a great ski - Coefficient X/SL big bang for the buck. Which binding setup were you thinking? Are you thinking EXO?
