The invaders are really for rail. Kickers too but a little bit soft..
The anthems are for evrything like kick rail and a little bit BC
I figure there is no point in starting another Anthem thread so hopefully some people will see this so I don't have to make another.... and I have been searching.
I am looking into buying some Anthems, my question in I am 6 feet, 195 lbs. Would a 178 ski be to small as this is a softer park ski or would I be okay? Should I be looking at other options? If so name your picks.
All the searching I have done yields results of people 5'4-5'10 weighing 130-165 and they are all recommended the 178s. Which is why I wonder if they are to small for me.
I currently have a set of Armada ARV 185s and they work for pretty much everywhere even when it gets a little deep. I just want something for more park and cruising. Nope, not a guy who hits rediculous booters or down flat down flat down flat uber rails. Just looking for something to try some new shit with.
Thanks for the response. + Karma for you my friend.
I have no intentions of going big. Hell, I started skiing last season at age 25 and can handle double blacks, but i have little to no park skills. Small 180s is about it. So maybe this ski in the 178 would be a good choice. I will look into the blend and Chronic as well.
Anyone else have opinions?
^ i'm a few inches smaller that you but weigh about the same and i found my anthems to be a super fun ski. at my weight i didnt felt that they were noodley soft (just nice and soft), and they surprised me at how they handled for allmt cruising. i took a few small hits on them and they didn't dissapoint, never whashed out on me or anything like that. even used them on a pow day and they still performed! don't worry about the soft flex pattern but if you're really into stiff park skis then theres always the chronic. i'd say if you're using them to start doing some new shit and you if you're just lookin for a fun, light, symetrical ski then you should def pick up a pair, great ski for sure.
Thanks for the info. I figure I will have my ARV's for pow days and am looking at the Anthems for more random fun in the park.
+ karma for sure.
