anyone know if htese skis r good in moguls air powder or are they light pl;eez reseponmd
The Verse line is based off of the 1080 design (a few years ago, the blue ones) The 5 repersents how stiff they are. They are a intermediate carving ski, ok for the bumps, ok in the air, but NOT a twin tip. The 720 has a more turned up tail then the Verse.
You must be this tall>>>>>>
To ride this Ride!
when i was looking for all mountain skis last year i looked at the verse series and all i heard was that they sucked, intermidiate and below not a good ski
the magazine is called 'POWDER' cool! - my stupid non-skiing friend
there good my friend bought them then got an iron and made the tall big he says there good now
they are ment for beginner to intermediate, not any higher, they weren't ment to ski backwards even if you turn up the tail, they flex as much as rubber, so if you do ever get them don't blame it on Salomon if they suck, because chances are they're goign to break in less than 1 season. I almost did the same 2 years ago and I was told the same thing here, but I suppose if your short on cash and you wnat to get Salomons that bad more power too you....
those skis are good for people like my mom, who skis blues and shit. not for to much else other than learning how to carve.
Check out what this person had to say about the Verse 5's:
'Excellent skis. Went from An lower intermediate to an upper intermediated as soon as I doffed these beatuies. a fun ski for doing everything.'
Woah! and you know you should trust 'em as they 'doffed' them. and what does he/she mean by everything? i highly doubt air.
so seriously no, don't get 'em.
go to skinet.com and go to Gear and they have this interactive feature that's pretty nice. even got newschool stuff
and i think some guy is selling used 720's in the ewuipment forum so check that out
im not buying them my ski shop lets me take a ski off the rack brand new and beat the fuck out of them i rent for the season if they break get a new pair of whatever i want but theier not gunna give me brand new pocketrockets or 1080s so im taking the verse 5s i mean i can always beat the shit out of them im buying rosi scratches next yr
