K2 public enemy vs. 4frnt tnk
Im trying to pick out which skis i should get for this season - i ride 80% park 20% everywhere else. im 5'5 125lbs - im looking for something that is light, good in the park, and is solid on the rest of the mountain - do these skis fit what im looking for?
by the way - i'm looking at last years PE's and TNK's
PE's are consistently great skis. good all-around. and complete tanks, you can ski the shit out of them. i don't know much about the tnks.
although PE's are bombproof, they are very heavy. keep that in mind when making your decision
i have last years PE's. they are a very good all mountain ski, and very very bombproof(only a couple cracked edges, no delam issue or anything like that) but i ski about 98% park. i do not like them for park they are a very "dead" ski, not poppy, and are somewhat heavy. ive never skied TNK's so i cant make an accurate comparrison. i would maybe look into a ski other than the PE's for your amount of park riding. but if you go with PE's i am fairly certain they will last you
if your doing more park, i would say get the TNKs. public Enemies are great skis, good all round, pretty good for park, really durable, but tehy are pretty damn heavy. I've heard the TNKs are really light, so i think tehy would be better for more park. I find the Publics are a great all mountain skis and decent for park, pipe, pretty good for urban, although I liked the volkl Karmas better. i think for teh amount of park you do TNks would be a better choice

is this relaly a question, hands down TNK for 80% park.
thanks for the input - i think im going tnk
get the tnk for sure. its way better, so light and poppy
mute + japan = MUTAN!
When in doubt, style it out
tnks are 4frnts predominatlypark ski where as pes are k2s all mountain ski

get the tnk the pe and and all other k2 skies suck
tnk's are rediculous freeskier mag has a great review
PE's are meh same ski for past 4 years
Yo-Yo its progression
and i bet you've skied everything k2 makes, right?
for what you're doing, the tnk might be the better choice, but its really preference. as said before, the PE is good for everything, but doesnt really excel at anything except being stupidly durable. if you're considering a k2 ski for the park, look into the fujative. thats what i've been riding for the past two years, and i really like them a lot.
