Anyone ever ride the ski? I want if for the east (yes, i know the dimentions) and I used the pistols for east coast all mtn riding, ive just never felt the ski, stiff or noodely? ect ect..lemme know
not for east, even if you have massive legs, thats big stiff ski
don't throw stones if you live in a glass house;
and if you got a glass jaw you better watch your mouth
Nope, it's not stiff. Explosiv is still stiff, but the Gotama is not. This is from talking to 2 people who've skied it, plus the skiing.com review. Probably a little bit stiffer than Pistols, but not much.
PS. Why the hell would you get a 105mm waist ski for the east? That's the dumbest thing I've heard all day.
i heard it was a lot softer than most volkl skis. Looks like a cool ski... preety massive for east coast, even compared to the seth pistol dude.

NH_Line:ya oakleys skis are no rumor!!!!!!!!! offffff the hook, the are coming out with the Osama Pros, and t-hall is leaving Armada to ride them, they also will come with a free bling bling necklace
ArmadaFreerider8:Where can you get a pic of the new oakley skis?
Ds91260: i already got my osama pros, i stole them from a cave in afganistan
ArmadaFreerider8: Why would tanner hall leave armada after he just helped start it
It's really flexy. At stryn sommerski I saw this dude do a switch tail manual for like 20 feet then a looooong sideways butter and it wasn't even a steep spot.

buy em! i ride big stix 106 and im from stratton, its worth it for those 3 or 4 mornings a year when your looking at 2+ foot dumps! you cant compare it to anything! just dont try and ride anything 100+mm underfoot on hardpack, it gets sketchy...
Say you get em for $550 and you get vtrider's 4 massive pow days per season. We'll assume you have bindings.
Say you keep em 3 seasons, that 12 deep pow days.
That's about $45 a day.
Fat skis are cool in the pow, but not $45-a-day worth of cool.
no he'd ski them everyday. he's stubborn like that.
SLTskier: there are so many girls in freeskiing now have you noticed that
stowek2: yep..theres a few skilled ones...a good number who love it and want to progress, then a bunch of morons that are trying to impress the boys by wearing as little clothing as possible and as much make-up as possible on the hill
SLTskier: yeah however im one that trys to progress and impress the boys :-)

i road my pistols daily in all conditions and never had a problem, made skiing more interesting to me, haha
you allso have to figure hes gitting them at pro form, i have 300 bucks invested in my big stix bindings and all. i prolly road them 6 or 7 times last season, 4 times for the whole day (the other times i just busted them out in the morning) no matter what condition the skis end up in, and no matter how far down the line, i will be able to get at least 150 bucks back for them, so thats 150 bucks. 7 times this year alone, thats like 21 bucks a day. its worth it.
All times are Eastern (-4)
