1. Brigade, too expensive
2.anthem, too soft
3.bridge, too expansive
4. JvJ's, havent heard much about the all mountain/carvin and park on these
so yea my price range is below 500 but i want a medium flex fatty, that i can take into the park 30% of teh time and take to the rest of the hill 40 percent but still own it up in the BC for 30%. suggestions are awsome
this is for west coast use way later on in life (next year its just really buggin me)
Live on the East? PM Me for an invite to the East coast jibbers
ive had the same dilemma and gone with this years atomic thugs, may be a little too fat at 120 waist but their soft tip and tail, and stiff under bindings so they are supposedly good for on piste and off, (with the stiffness giving them good straightline speed and stability) although they are marketed as park/backcountry kicker skis. i was looking for something quite soft for butters and such so you might be looking for stiffer but id say the thugs are similar to your needs. someone was selling some on here with bindings for $500 obo.
