finally, you just said it yourself!
lemme explain...when you flex a ski, you cant flex the whole ski at the same time. it seems like it would give you a good idea of the flex pattern, but in reality, it is entirely worthless. when examining flex patterns, you need to examine the front part of the ski and the tail separately.
when you do this, you find that the tm is actually quite stiff up top, but when you try the tail, it feels like you could break it. this helps in landing kickers and performance in the park.
when you try flexing skis like the invaders using this method, the entire package is very soft, which is why they made the ski in the first place.
in my experience, the tm is by far the best all-mtn performance ski out there that can still handle bumps, and seeing as how i am pretty light, it is perfect for my experiences.
yea, so i hope everyone understands what im trying to say and try flexing a ski differently the next time ur in the shop. its pretty enlightening....
no pain, no jane
