Hi, I'm looking at buying skis for the first time (from the U.K, have only hired in the past), and these caught my eyes, as I want to try freestyle.
How are they on-piste, off-piste etc (basically anywhere othe than the parks), and how are they with the Look PX12 Jib bindings? Everywhere I look, I seem to find the skis with those bindings, are they good?
i have them but just got them and have only skied them one day, as far as off paste skiing there is way better skis out there, at only 78 mm underfoot they are very skinny so they wont float in the powder as much as some other skis would, if you only want a one ski quiver that would be good in the park, powder and sketchy conditions look for more of an all mountain ski that is about 85-90 mm under the waist. that width will kill it everywhere.
It's great park ski, and a great on piste ski, but the 07/07 (before it got wider) is a bit narrow, especially noticeable in the softer and deeper snow, as well as steeps and stuff. Basically not very good for off-piste.
Big Trouble is kind of like the all mountain version of it and it kicks ass at everything.
The fujitive will be abit soft for out of the park skiing. It will tend to wash out on you, as far as allmountain twins go the new 07/08 trouble maker is great, the added width helps with stability, and the flex provides more stability then most twins out of the park. The new waist allows you to go off the groomed more then before, however If you really plan on more non groomed snow go for the big trouble, it is basicaly a bigger beefer version of the TM.
And look PX 12's are the best binding for your money. As far as 12 din bindings go I think they are the best, it also helps that they are less expensive.
