Just gonna join in on your thread, as I am in the same boat as you, tall and looking for a soft ski.
I demoed the '10 Kung Fujes in Whistler this year, and the mini rocker is fun, but I would like to go softer if it was me. But deffinetly worth considering.
I have also considered the Afterbangs, as I think they are gonna be an amazing pair of skis, but still they could be longer.
So right now I am at Moment Reno Rockers. They are said to be a little stiff, but that the rocker makes up for that, so the feel nice and soft. And they come in a 181, not long, but in the 80's.
A friends of mine skied the Bent Chetlers all winter, and he loved them, nice an soft with a rocker profile, butter and presses were so smooth, and great in pow.
thanks, that helped alot. k + :D
ya im kind still thinking wether I should take the Bent chetlers or if i should take the jjs from armada.
i like the massive rocker and the shape of the jjs, but i heard better critiques for the chetlers. what do you think? i also like the fact that the jjs have are nearer to symetry than the chetlers, which are 141-122-133 or so. i like riding switch alot, so im still thinking.
thanks alot again.
ya i am also thinking bout the reno rockers, i really like their shape. the fact that their tips are more rectamgular. i also think their good, because there are not so many people riding them. by chance do you know thier price or if they are fully symetrical? i wish the afterbangs would come in 185!!!!
im thinking about getting the punx from 2010 and the chetlers too. the punx come in 180 + right?
i like how big of a rooster tail they make. but i also heard only good stuff about them. on BC.com they werent even taht expensive.
thanks for the help man, k+ :D
Wish the Afterbans came in that length too!
The Reno Rockers are fully symetrical (117-92-117) and they cost a little over $500, so not that bad.
As I recall the punx come in a 184, or maybe that is the urban punx. I have been looking a lot at that ski too.
Has anybody out there skied the Reno Rocker? And can tell us how they ski?
I can only find one review, and that is an old one. And the only videoes I can find is a short one of Cedric skiing them, and he does not do a lot of butter stuff in that edit!
I had some reno rockers and they werent for me. I prefer non-rockered park skis as I feel I get more pop but in the pow and just everyday jibbing around I really love my 179 obsethed I have mine 1cm back from centre and only lose float once it gets knee deep and even then its manageable.
The 179 Obsethed, once riden for a bit is SOFT softer than my 07 dumonts and softer than a Bentchetler more manageable as well its my favourite all around ski.
However for those really deep days Im craving the surface New Life or Moment Nighttrain. The new life is supposed to be symmetrical 122 underfoot jib stick, though details are scarce at the moment.
The Nighttrain is moments version of a Hellbent, ie; fat, pow slaying, not quite symmetrical, jib tool.
