Time For some new twins....suggestions?
After working all summer its time to start buying some gear. My two pairs of skis I have right now are last years K2 Ak Enemys, and a pair of 3 year old Rossi Pow Airs. The Pow airs are really trashed and I'm looking to upgrade. I don't really have a specific company I like so I'm looking for some suggestions.
The main use for these skis would be backcountry kickers and then in the terrain park. I use my Aks for everything else. Whatever I get I want to be better landing in the powder then my Pow airs wich sink all the way to China on big jumps.
I don't know if i should get a fat twin thats smaller then my Ak Enemys like the 175 Pocket Rockets or little Big Fats. Or should I get something Like Scratch FS or K2 Public enemys? Im 6'4' but I only way 170 pounds.
I don't have that much money to spend so cheaper is better.
go fatter, fat skis still work in the park. like 179 seth pistols, or 175 aramda arv's that type of ski.
Those will be expenisve... so think about last years skis etc. Like Old Srcath BC 176 or 182,
something around 84-92 waist and 175-185 lentgh

got some scratch fs 180 with salomon 180 bindings if you are interested :)
now the old man sits until the days when time stood still, the hours always seem to fade, but the memeories never will. All the love that you gave me, the dreams in the night. Now I just want to thank you, while the day's still light.
if you're 6'4 you need at least 180s
Abba Zabba, you my only friend
the 4frnts waist are like 95mm. I think and if you got the 180s those would float you.
I got nothin.
you cant go wrong with the volkls...the explosive or the new gotamas are sweet for powder. Even a v-pro would do the job I think but it all depends on how fat of a ski you want...
the new explosiv is not a twin though-keep that in mind. the head mojo is cheap and rather fat. i think it comes around 180 too
i just bought the PEs and im stoked
you dont want gotamas unless your dude_le_skibum who skis las lenas, poland, and everywhere in between annually. gotamas are good for one thing, and one thing only. deep fuckin powder.

I've been looking online, I think I'm gonna go fatter....Narrowed it down to 175 Pocket Rockets, 178 Little Big Fats, or the Scratch BC. Now I'm looking for the cheapest deal.
