Looking for some skis, help me out here.
I'm 5'9" 165lbs need a ski fr like 75% park, 25% everything else, getting back to skiing and was thinking of some twin tips. i have been snowboarding for the past 5 years, and wanted to switch 2 years ago to skiing until i got new equipment.
here's a list i hav considered so far
These are what i had in mind, that i found online cheap:
1. K2 Fujative in 169cm
2. K2 Public Enemy 169/174 cm
3. Salomon 1080 Flyer 171 cm
4. Armada El Rey 171 cm
5. Line Invader
For bindings i was thinking maybe some Look PX 12. I'm really digging those. any other recommendations.
or maybe these. come on someone help me out here.
Would you take some 175 dynastar TM's with p10's for $150 w/o ship?
not necessarily looking used, but hsow some pics.
go with the tm's. i switched over from boarding about 2 years ago and picked up a pair of those. i live on the east coast and i can't really complain about how they worked skiing through all the crud. also worked great in the park, mostly in the pipe. it was a great first ski for me
any of that list would go down well, along with trouble makers,
fujis are aweful outside the park tho, super soft
10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain and 100% reason to remember the name.

unless you like to mess around on trails
I would go with those Troublemakers the guy is selling if they are in decent shape.
PEs are good but kinda heavy. Also you might want to looka t volkl walls.
wat about Rossi Scratch Sprayer FS? getboards.com has them for 149.99. i think i might go with the fujatives.
line invader in 178 sounds like ur ski
nice and cheap
dont go for the 171 though

any other opinions or recommendations?
also found these:
i was thinking maybe the t-halls cuz there wide, or not.
does anyone know if the t-halls with the Scarface theme have metal edges or not, cuz i was watchin something and it said something about putting metal edges back in.
if you mean the 06/07s ( the ones that are black and white , and say Armada in red) They definitely have metal edges. All alpine skis have metal edges, umless they are ripped out from use.
