VCT or JP vs Julien?
Just wondering if anybody has skied both. Which one did you like better and which one is softer? Is the VCT anywhere near as light as the JP vs Julien (next years is super light). Thanks guys.
Im looking to get a pair of jp's
Jps are the lightest ski ever, period. If you wanna do jibbing get jps.
Were you just offended by that last post? Did you think that it was a dick comment?
Save your breath, I don't care. Get the fuck over it.
Sack up and get VCTs they're the bomb
jps r much better, and armada is just in general a better company then 4frnt
id lean towards jps
Skiing is the new cult, the new obscure, and quite frankly the new cool.
what sizes are you looking at?
i've skied both next years 182 vct and next years 188 jj. both are sick. the jj rips in soft snow. suuuuper lightweight. tracks straight really well. but they are pretty soft.
the vcts tear it up in all conditions. pretty lightweight, but nothing like the jj. they hold a great edge on hardpack. they shred pow. and they are even pretty good in the park. they're considerably stiffer than the jj.
if you're going to be getting them for purely bc and pow days, i would say jj. if you want something a little more versatile, get the vct. either way you go, though, you won't really be disappointed.
I'm looking at the 182 (VCT) and 188 (JJ). I wanted them because I'm going out west a few times next year and want something for the powder. I'm only 150 lbs, so I guess I'm probably leaning towards the JJ's because I wanted something soft, but the VCT seem like they are such a sick, well rounded ski.
What he said.
Also remember there is a fatter 189 VCT coming out next year. And there is/was a 190 EHP which is the same ski as the 182 VCT but bigger.

get 4 frnts there service is to die for and there reps are so good they arnt to be seen at their booth. so when they break you're down stream with no paddle. get armadas.
Shred the Gnar.
Hands down VCT. Best ski ever. Sick graphics too.
Fuck It and Huck It!
Get the JP, they are ridiculously light, tear up powder like none other and are generally a sicker ski, the 4FRNTs are a little more versatile, but the JPs aren't a bad ski anywhere, and are definitely worth what they give up in sidecut for the weight savings ang fresh snow abilitys.

force of impact + force of steeze = 0

haha you just hate on 4frnt just like you hated on Armada's for the longest time and now preach about them.
these were the two exact skis i was lookihg at, i want with the JP's cauce they were lighter the only issue is that they are soper soft so not to great for park but htey ar an amazing ski and they are epic in pow!!
The big A is the shit!!!!!!!!!!!!
