I have it down to either Dynastar Big Troubles or Liberty Hazmats. I can get both for about the same price. I have been very happy with my Liberty SBs (they don't explode any more like old Liberties), but I also love my old Troublemakers. Advice?
been stuck in the midwest for 20 years...finally bustin' out
hazmats are sex when i skied on a pair. pretty light for how big they are, and they have bamboo sidewalls and have lots of pop. BT's are descent, but pretty heavy i think, and they felt sluggish by far compared to the hazmats. sooo jea, hazmats, that's what i'd choose!
In the 5th grade i asked a girl out and then ran away as fast as i could. It was awesome.
I got my hazmats yesterday and skied them all day today. They're like no other ski I've ever been on. I have butters for park and have had 2 years of pe's, 2 years of ar5's, fujatives and stealths and these are the most unique skis out of all of them. I loved my stealths but the flex pattern was a bit weird. The flex with these are perfect. I've never had a wider ski than 90 something underfoot so getting use to these took me a while. I overshot every jump I hit today with such little speed. I barely have to pop. They feel extremely stable. I've never been comfortable skiing switch but with these it just feels natural. You can ask me again in a month and see what I say but so far, Hazmats are my favorite ski.
So after a week on them I love them more than ever. I've never been confident on jumps but these feel very stable. I've gotten use to the width. I've gained so much confidence with them. I went from 3's to 7's in a day and over rotated a few and washed out a 9. I went back the next day with my butters and even though I like them alot, they didn't feel comfortable in the air.
