i blew out my knee last winter and cant ski hard againfor a few months, so i need a park ski that is good for all mountain. im going to be using it on flats for a few months then in the park, i got some mogul skis to compete on. im debatign between the scratch (the black one) or the 1080s.
1080s are a piece of shit. they delam usually and lose their stiffness within 30 days on snow due to the cheap foam core. stick with rossi and get the wood core. also i've never seen a pair of delamed scratches. the top sheet gets a little beat up but that really doesn't matter
Mystic, if you've never seen scratches delam, you havent seen a lot of scratches. But I have them and though I keep mine in the park cause they're shorter than my big mountain skis, whenever I take them out they perform great in the groomed and kill bumps. I highly recomment rossi.
i hate the 1080's. I demo'ed them on demo day at sunday river and after one run i brought them back. the guy also said, no rails or you have to pay for them (so what that interpreted to me was they suck on rails and get wicked big scratches on teh bottem) and they also sucked in all mountain. wicked fucked up ski.
but I used the rossi scratches all day long. it was heaven. but i used the proteens cause im younger.
So last years scratches arent all that great? I'm trying to get last years black scratch bc's but if they are going to delam then I dont want them. What do you guys think?
I need last years black scratch bc's!!!!
when i say the black scratch i mean the '04 scratch, not the '04 scratch bc. this year they came out with 3 scratch: BC FS and normal. the only diff between the normal ones (the black ones i want) and the fs is the core. thanks for the help.
The core does make a difference. I lifted and flexed both of them in the store and I could feel it. The scratch nothings are a fair bit heavier, but then again, pretty much all skis are light enough nowadays.
I have 1080s and I love them....well it might be because I had peice of shit maverics last year that couldnt do shit. But in any case I reccamend the 1080s, I know nothing about scratches so I cant tell you wat one to get
