Thruster's or Jon Olsson's?
Im split on either the Salomon Thursters or the Jon Olsson Pro Models...
which one should i go with?
I would lean towards the Jon Olssons, just because the base on my friends Thrusters is falling out on the tips
jo pro would be better imo. they are lighter and popyer
plus i hear that they fall apart easily
I LIKE ATOMIC SKIS
What exactly will you be skiing?
lets see would you rather stare at a monkey or babes all day
JOs are sick - I have them and love them, super light and really good fun, only thing I would say is no ABS sidewalls so they're not the best for rails (could fall apart but mine are fine). However I love them for jumps and great for boxes and just love how light and narrow they are for park. Kill it on the piste too if you want to bomb it for a bit of a rush.
what i dont understand is how one can bring themselve to compare these two skis...
its like comparing a honda with a body kit and fly paint to a corvette with a supermodel on it...

they both have there ups and downs. JO's are better for jumps and not so good on rails cause they have like no sidewall but thrusters are better on rails. so 50 - 50 my suggesttion would be to rent both for a day each and see what u like better.
^thrusters are cap too
yea they're two totally different skis and the heads are better, just more expensive
if u can afford J.O. pros definitely get them. i'd get them but i'm 6'3'' and they only make 178
the jos have masive pop and are lighter than shit, i use them and they are the greatest skis ive ever used, next years should be as good or better. both skis are cap but i have 5 friends who ride solomon and have destroyed them so go with head
"I dont care how cofortable they are those crocs make you look like a retard"
I have next years..there the same...just different top sheet...SICK SKI!!

looking to meet anyone who enjoys long, fast turns on sweet groomers, big hits or deep pow in the glades!! Must love the outdoors and not be afraid of cold temperatures or adverse weather conditions.
I prefer the bnw - fitter girls and 2 of them rather than just one!
