Hi Im 11 Years old(will be 12 next season) And im wondering which ski is for me. Ext's, Threats or El rays,I'm 5'1 and looking for a good ski. What out of those ski's would be best for jumps, I'm still looking for flex for rails but my skiing is 80% jumps. I want Either 149 ext's. 151 Threats or 157 El rays.Please Reply,Peace.
Ill agree with eric above. We had so many pairs of threats come back on warrenty last year. Edges ripping out from everywhere on the ski, delams, ect. Ive also seen some broken kids K2 twins, but not many. They adult skis are bomber for the most part though. The El Rays are a great price point kids ski. Great construction, low weight, poppy. I would say to get the Armadas.
Your Dam Right Bro, but none of those skis are juniors, Oh and i meant suspects not threats, and i'm hearing lots of good shit about suspects, and not much about the el rays(Although they are armada's)
The only thing is the fact That el rays in 157 is the shortest length. and im 5'1 And 110 pounds, i got the basics down (Rails, spins etc) but im wondering if its too long for me, It would be a bit tall for me
A center mounted 157 will be fine for you, they will be about 3cm above you, but you will have some grow room. suspects seem to be hit or miss, if you ski hard, you can easily have problems, if you are just starting in the park and are lightweight, you probably will be fine.
The EXT has the same dimensions as the silencer, but it has sidewalls and better construction.
And to the guy who posted above me, EXTs are not the same skis as extremes.
To the OP, go for the el rey. Armada quality, cap construction (durable), lightweight, and I haven't heard anything bad about that ski. Plus they seem pretty sick we have them at my shop and they have a pretty sweet flex.
Armada is the way to go, the el ray is going to be a little stiffer than the say the coda, at 5'1" you are going to be able to butte the coda better and get more out of it. not to mention a 150 coda for $124 can't go wrong
no, not at all, I have both the Extremes and Silencers, completly different, however, the Extremes are pretty much the same as the PEs but a newer version. And for the poster of this thread, only problem with the Extremes is they are a bit heavy :(
Im not talking about extremes, for 2010 theres a new ski called the ext and its a scaled down version of the extreme. And yess it has the same dimensions as the silencer but just a tad but less forgiving.
