Sooo, I've never gotten any of my ski stuff paid for by my rents. Well this year, I picked my beaten ARWs off the ground in my room before a day of shredding, and the binding fell off.
I ski everyday (park crew and ski instructor), so I kinda needed a new pair of skis. I decided to bring up the subject with the rents, and ask for a cheap pair for xmas. They told me to write down skis that I wanted and bindings and maybe I'll get something. So I did.
I wrote down fujatives, silencers, a pair of last years AR6s I found, and the thrusters. Oh, and I snuck in the pipe cleaners kind of as a joke/stretch.
Welllll what do you know. They bought me the pipe cleaners. They aren't mounted yet, and they bought them at this shop we always go to. So here's my problem..
1. I feel bad having such nice skis and using them at such a shitty ass mountain
2. I keep hearing of their comp (racing) base, and how soft it is. Yes, I'm a girl, but no, I'm not small. I'm 5'10" and weigh 135
3. All I hit are rails. Hardly ever pipe, hardly ever jumps. I just love rails (oh gosh sexual innuendo)
Since I'm not that small, will these bases get fucked from me hitting rails? Will it really be that terrible? And is it worth keeping these, when I would downgrade to a fujative? I can easily go to the shop and switch them with a different ski.
i think you will be ok with the pipecleaners, but if it doesnt make a difference switch down to fujatives and use the money for bindings or other ski stuff.
My understanding of pipe cleaners is the bottom do get trashed but only to the point that they are not super fast and great for pipe, they still are nice skis just minus their intended speed boost
i had pc last year as my rail ski. hit rail hard all day with them for about 30days of hard rail abuse. Had edge cracks and what not but nothing poped out. And this years pc have thicker edges so you will be fine and you will love them. I promise you that
okay... get in your car and be like hey tom tom, take me to mcdonalds, and get a application and be like tom tom, take me home, fill it out and get back in your car and be like tom tom, take me back to mcdonalds and then be like you here is my application, and then they will call you later and be like yo...want the job and be like yeah and then get in your car and say hey tom tom, take me to mcdonalds and then be like bam pay check then be like i quit and then be like tom tom take me to the ski hill and be like bam here is the cash and they will be like here is the season pass then be like bam im on the ski hill and then when you are done be like, tom tom take me home, and then you wake up the next day they go to your car and then be like tom tom, take me to the hill again, then do that again till there is no snow...
yea, shred em hard. it's nice to have nice skis every now and then.
Dude, joke's totally on them, you should make a t-shirt that says 'all you fools suck' and on the back it can say 'I rule coz T-dawg said so' and yeah, you'll be rockin it shibby, new steeze brah, wikkid! ~PhattTim

agreed. if you had said you were 6' 5" 210 lbs people might be telling you to lay off the rails with those. the only things i would consider in swapping these out for another pair would be the flex and mounting point. fuji's, invaders, or ar6's might suit you better for rails, its all personal preference though.
