I never really thought any skis were heavy. The first twin tip i ever rode was when I demo'd a PE, and I just made sure whatever ski i got seemed at least a bit lighter cause those felt like too much, im sure theyd be fine now though

Dude, joke's totally on them, you should make a t-shirt that says 'all you fools suck' and on the back it can say 'I rule coz T-dawg said so' and yeah, you'll be rockin it shibby, new steeze brah, wikkid! ~PhattTim
I'd like to weigh in on this one: I ususally ride old x-screams, light little sticks, went out to whis and rode prophet 90's and scratch BC's (which seemed pretty much exactly the same) and while those skies are pretty heavy especia;;y by comparasion, they kill it in pow. Having that extra weight underfoot makes you commit to ripping turns and lets you blow through drifts, its sick as hell.
of course then I took them into some incredibly tight out of bounds glades, and while they killed it there too, my I could barely walk the next week from wrenching them around corniners all the fuckin time
i love heavy cause they make you feel more stable and stomp huge landings

"My most recent had a skier and a snowbaorder take off from seperate jumps facing each other and meet in mid air. The skier then proceeds to violently stab the snowboarder in mid air with his pole, then lands, while the snowboarder, falls to the ground bleeding profusely. Good stuff."-IanIsBored2000 talking about his latest sequence drawing
i ride scratch sprayer fs's right now, utb over the season ive riden, line invaders,chronics, triplets,silencers,PE's, and a couple others, but i like the sprayers cause there no to heavy , but heavy enogh that you know where they are in the air, i couldent stand the line's there way to light for me, i need a ski that is well weighted so i can control them better in the air.
Pretty much why I use my Jp's 99% of the time over my Gotamas. I like a lighter skis. And yea weight does make a huge difference in a park ski, and not just for spinning. When I ski the 190 Gotamas in the park, I feel like I have no control over them off jumps if I need to adjust real quick.
weight doesnt matter much, swing weight is a bigger deal, but i'd rather have a heavy ski that's durable and has pop (gotta have my pop).
