Scratch's or darsides
i need some help choosing a ski, i ski 75% mountain and 25% park, but i am going to ski more park this year. I was thinking of either getting the scratch bc or the darksides. Money is no problem coz i worked my ass off this summer and i got loads saved, i am 6ft 2inch and i weigh 12 stone( unsure what it is in pounds). Any recommendations
id get the scrizzatch 180 fs its 110-80-103.... plenty big for pow and way better in the park than the bc
yeah scratch fs definately

How many snowboarders does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
10, 1 to do it, and 9 to say 'I can do that.'

support the cause and get lines... the companie's devoted to one thing: progression of the sport, as opposed to rossignol thats devoted to making money, and has allowed a small division of it's company to make twin-tips to cash out on it's exploitatioin...the more we help small companies that hold our interest, the more secure and respected our interests become... as opposed to just a fad or promotional gimmick.... yea
take it from a guy with the same first name as you, go for darksides, 01/02, they look sick, and they are pretty good. If i weere to suggest a cheap place to get them is www.d-structure.com it will come to something like 360 can, which is about 220 or near there us
i also completely agree with ridetolive. Line had some troubles in the past, like 2 or more years ago, but now nothing to get you pantys in a bunch
but if i get the darkside i will have to get the line binding which looks like it is going to be out in decmember but coz i live in britain i doubt that there will be enough of them, and only 3 places in britain sell line and they haven't even shown us what mdoels they are selling. Last year only 1 shop sold the twelse sixty, mike nick por 153( round there) and the skogen pro, that is my problem but with the scratchs i know i can definiately get them and the bindings!
new darksides will suck in park, i beleive, they are a racing ski
you don't have to use the pivogy binding with their new skis
There are two positives to life: you live and you die.
Since this is the first year that line is getn bindings, then u can use any bindings on the 01/02 version. The 03 is gonna suck ass, because the guy that designed it pbly hasn't advanced past 1980's pop. The year old ones u can get for 230us, Cheap, u cheap bastard. Plus, one of the sickest lookin skis, great all terrain, 76mm waist for float, and awesome in the park(the funny part is, skogen uses them, not his model)
i think i am going to get the scratches. Th eplace that sells the darksides is selling them for £300 which is like $350 maybe more and that is the 01/02 model. I should be able to get the scracthes for that price. Thanks for the help guys anyway!
And for the guy who said support line, i have been for the past couple of years, i ride line ski boards and they rule! Mike Nick pro's all the way!
The Line site is selling new '01-'02 darks for $200
mate i live in the uk so i will have to pay like around $100 maybe more and then i will have to pay tax as well. As i said before only 3 places sell lines stock from last season, but luckly there are 5 places stocking line products.
