Karma or PE??? agressive ski
I weight only 148 lbs and eight 5,9 feets, i ski much agressive (i have compited in slalom for years), and i ski 30% park 70% all mountain (pistes and off pistes), i have read that karmas are stiffer so maybe they´re better for my kind of ski (agreesive).
Finally, i found them in that prices:
- K2 Public Enemy 06/07 + Marker 12.0 Free 06/07 = 339€ = 438 US$
- Völk Karma 06/07 + Marker 12.0 Free 06/07 = 379€ = 490 US$
What do you think will be better ski for me?
I haven't skied that Karmas but that is the ski that i'm looking at for next year. It seems like the perfect ski for a little bit of everything, pow, park, grommers, etc.
it says on ur thing doesnt it
yeah. but i can't remember how to spell it
well if you want them now i would say that you should get the karma just cause its sstiffer and you will be more used to it. but if you want a slightly softer ski then i would go with the PE. i had this same decision and then price became and issue so i went with 4FRNT msp's which are inbetween the karma and PE. if you like a lot of pop in your skis (since you race slalom i think you would) for park but still be able to slay the entire mountain then get the karma. If you want a ski that can do the same thing then get the PE it all dpends on the price now

Nomensteven-"how can you recomend a binding without knowing his weight man? he could be 250 pounds and ride like a tank.. wouldd u still put him on that binding?"
Chrismo720-"nah then i would glue his feet to the 2 by 4's he uses and use some duct tape, u can get that pretty cheap at any local hardware store"
the prices are up ;)
Thx, any more opinion?
Im going to buy it in a few days and i need to decide...
karmas are pretty all mountain oriented so that would probably be the one to go for
how about the prices i´ve found? cheap?
other question sorry for the double post:
¿What size of ski (im 5`9" and 148lbs)?
¿Where i have to mount the binds:true ski center, freeride o freestyle? In the first post i said how i ski.
volkl's are expensive, PE's aren't, it's kinda one of those apples to oranges things.
you would probably want to get a ski in the 170-175 range if your aggressive
K2=sick ski for pretty cheap.

i think i decide for karma
Get Chronics instead. A good stiff ski with tons of pop. Relatively cheap at that
yo..i have to 07 PE's and i love themm...i dont kno anythign about the karmas..but you cant really go wrong with te pe's... oh yea..i paid 430 for mine and fr some reason they are 299 on getboards now.... so hit that up if you dont find them cheaper than that..
get karmas, no contest here, it's a better ski anyway you look at it, more poppy, stifer, way more reoonsive, more durable, will keep it's camber. and at that price, it's the way to go. i'd probably go 177, but i don't know where you intend to mount, so i can say for sure.

Gear Pimp: i might just hook you up
i demoed Karmas for 2 days a few weeks ago and i had PEs last season
Get the karmas man, they are extremely durable and you can charge through whatever you want in them, on pretty much all terrains
I just got karmas this year, and I absolutely love them. I ski like 50/50 park/all mnt and they definitely kill it all over. They're definitely worth the extra $$ in my opinion.
karma is as stiff as a piece of wood. go with that, PE's are gay
I definitely go with karmas, do you know where i have to put de bindings skiing like ive said before?
The shop give me that options tu put the bindingsm and im a little lost...
What bindings could be good for the karmas? rossignol scratch ti 140? marker 12.0 free?
