They are very buttery and hold up pretty well in the park. I rode them all this year and I mainly do rails and boxes. All that happened to them were cosmetic damage(not that bad) and one tiny edge crack underfoot. You have to consider this, any ski you use on rails and jibs will eventually brake down. Even if you spend hundreds more for a better ski, it will still get damaged. It's only a matter of time.
the invaders are sick for jibbing and buttering and they're wicked lite which is nice for throwing spins. The only problem is that because of the lack of stiffness they're not as good as other skis on groomers and powpow.
Also they're not the best in the pipe.
09 invaders are out.
same exact ski as the 07 08. butter zones, carbon ollie band, elliptical side cut, 100% symetric,
just diff graphics for this year
so i would probly buy an 07 08 brand new over the 08 09 just cause it would be way cheaper
but there way fun ski to ride, very soft and buttery, deff a jib ski
it does NOT hold up as well as other skis for sure, the bases scratch pretty easy, delam is a very common thing on any of the invaders, the edges DO hold up pretty well though
