Well lately ive gotten this idea that i want a pair of really wide skiis. I dont really need them for powder or something i just think it would be a fun thing to try out in the park and just to play around with. So basicly i want to ski SFBs in both powder and park, and the park part just because i think it looks so damn fun. So the question is if SFB are skiiable in the park, i know they wont like explode just because i get in the park but anyways. I dont know maybe ive just watched the idea trailer to many times (since i havnt gotten the movie yet) but i think it looks like something i would like to try for a season and se if its something for me, ive gotten tired of competing and spin to win and just want to have fun and do 5s or something like that.
So is Sir Francis the best FAT twintip that i could use as a BC/parkski or should i go for some other. oh and im to long for the elisabeth.
Over time, most people experience life involving love, suffering, compassion and an unspeakable drive for something new... For me theres skiing, nothing more, nothing less and it encompasses everything, every day I'm out there------------- PEP FUJAS
I love the sac.

yea you can ski them in the park, you won't really get the benefit from the wide platform unless your hitting really big jumps though, on the smaller stuff they will feel sluggish, but that doesn't mean they won't be hella fun, what I would say is if you ski a lot of park and this is going to be your only ski, then look at maybe the anthems or blends, but if you already have a park ski and want something or our of the park and then messing around in the park occasionally then go with the bacons, but once again it comes down to preference right....
I'm in the same predicament as you Faro and was wondering the same thing about these. Still not sure what I'm going to do because we don't see a whole lot of powder, but this year calls for a lot.
I'm wondering too what they are like. I've skied the Elizabeth's and love them. I'd buy them, but I live on the east coast and I'd really like to use them as my park ski, and my pow ski when I go out west or if Stowe gets some of the deep stuff. I'm 5'8" and the Elizabeth would be too short, but I love the flex. How beefed up is the SFB from the Elizabeth this year?
How heavy are you (if you don't mind me asking...) 5'8" definately does not make you too tall for Elizabeths, they're designed to be a little short. In my opinion, the elizabeths are much better for a park/butter around play ski and also a lot of fun in the powder. Mine have become so soft that they are almost like reverse camber in powder. If it's less than 10", they stay right on top for me and are a riot, more than that, still fun, but well I have EP pros coming... Also look at Live Lifes? I personally don't recommend using Bacons as your only park ski on the east coast.
