I want to purchase a used set of skis and could use some advice.
I'm a strong intermediate skier that skis at ski resorts (so groomed trails). I like to ski somewhat fast and prefer quick short turns. I also like to do small jumps sometimes but not always. Are these too advance for me?
Performance 2014 Rossignol Unique 8 Skis. Bindings are Rossignol Saphire 110 DIN:3.5-11.0

I also found a deal on these but not sure if I need something more advance.
Head Natural Instinct 2016 Skis. Bindings are Tyrolia Sympro SP10 DIN:2.5-10.0
or Head Rev 70 Skis. Bindings are Tyrolia Sympro SP10 DIN:2.5-10.0

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

The blurb on the Rossi Unique 8 from 2014 reads:

The Rossignol Unique 8 is a ski for women looking for a lightweight ride that will be very stable at medium to fast speeds on the groomers. Once you ski on the Unique 8 you will find it remarkable as to how solid and stable it skis, especially due to how light it is. Rossignol's Air Core reduces the overall weight of the ski by 20% by using a Paulownia Wood Core. A lighter ski will keep you out on the slopes longer, and skiing better without sacrificing any performance. Power Turn Rocker has a slight rockered shape in the tip of the ski to help you initiate turns quicker than ever before. Traditional Camber on the rest of the ski will give you a solid grip on the snow, even on ice. The Unique 8's Oversized Side Cut has wider tip and tail dimensions to help you dive into turns very quickly. The VAS Linen Dampening System uses more eco-friendly materials than traditional ski materials, but also removes chatter as you blast down the mountain. If you are looking for a ski that is very quick edge to edge, stable at high speed, and will not cause you to over exert yourself the Rossignol Unique 8 will be the perfect ski for you.

Reviews are generally positive.
