Default Need a new pair of skis

I'm on an 8+ year-old pair of Rossi's, and needless to say, I could use a new pair.

Some basic info abotu me and what i'm looking for in a ski:
-Skid for about 35 years now
-Was on the college racing team
-Love going fast and "cranking" my turns. I've clocked in at over 85mph before.
-I no longer race, but still use the same style of skiing.
-Will occasionally hit kickers, but that's not anything key i'm looking for in a pair of skis.
-Needs to be able to handle everything besides park and back country. Powder (rarely), groomers, steeps, glades, etc
-The skis must have absolutely NO chatter when riding flat based or on edge. My current skis are shaky while riding flat based.

So as you can tell, I'm essentially looking for the perfect ski, which I know doesn't come cheap. Price doesn't really matter for me.

I couple other questions that I have are:

Rocker camber vs. standard camber. What would fit my needs better?
What width would you recommend?
Rossi vs. Volkl?
