yeahhh,yeahhh get ABangs MAAANNNNN.
no, those are popular on NS as far as skis to talk about that we never rode for more than a day to five days.. For anybody store-flexing them, notice they seem more stiff than you would have thought? but that is ok because they will break in to butterness. but then break in more. then more. then they will be just like Invaders. IMO.
Haven't skied either(have skied Invaders/Anthems, which I hated) but from what I here, AntiDs are super durable and an amazing ski. plus it is "tested" now since it was an 09 ski uncahnged for 2010, so you are for sure getting something good(well, you know what I mean by that). I think you can score cheap 09s somewhere..
so ABangs are new which can be fine, but Suspects had a lot of Hype going into this season didn't they? how did many of those end up...just saying.
damn, that kills my post a bit about AntiD being durable.
Well my input is go Armada if AntiD=problematic(I would not know) since PCs are a super awesome fast stable jump and pipe ski that kills all park features, 09 and 2010 Thalls are a super awesome ski that butters amazingly and still works great on all park features(which you could compare to Afterbangs purpose, but I would think THalls do it better) or go a bit inbetween with AR6s, which can do everything in park great. Not to mention, how many threads do you see of durability problems on 09 Armadas?(other than people complaining about chipped sidewalls, which I can live with on my PCs)
ive ridden both..
there both bomb skis, its kinda personal prefference id say tho. and i never had durability issues with my abangs. and i had ripped the edges out of both pairs of my previous skis ninthwards and invaders. but the afterbangs held up all season and were a great ski. but afterbangs were a super unique and fun ski. if you have specific questions ill answer them
"i really worth the hype = are really worth the hype" sorry for the type-o. here is what amplid says about the antiDs
"Enough waist for that early morning backcountry kicker, and super durable biax-glass construction to survive big rail disasters. Abuse Base Technology, your friend in the fight against rail bites."
on your 15th day of riding, the only difference will be the butter zones are a bit closer on A Bangs.
And yes, line has a lot of good advertising. Remember how persuasive the Anthem video was? And as far as durability, they may have that sorted out on A Bangs, but I still bet they will soften up a ton after a few days(to invader ish) of riding. THalls should be the comparison people make, but for some reason they are not..
