Anthems suck all mountain(and in park). Fujas are soft enough throughout that you can make smooth long butters(butters are the only thing anthems do ok at, and not that well), and wider than Anthems so butters will be more stable. On jumps Fujas will do better too, they were made so that they can carve(anthems were not, and don't carve well). Fujas will do better in pow. Fujas IMO will feel more playfull and are much much more fun everywhere. Get fujas 179(185ish), mount about -2(if you are doing alot of park that is still fine) with Tyrolia Peak 15/18(win) or Solly STH 16s, S912s/14s/16s(if you are big), or 914 labs.
what year Fujas are you going to get? I wonder how 2010s will compare to 09s
Yeah it's not like a 172 noodle is gonna hold somebody back skiing all mountain that is 6'4" or anything.
and 09 Fujas are what I liked, 2010s look fun too and the shape is something new(when not de-cambered, it appears to have no rocker, and when it is de-cambered, the rocker comes out, at least I think that is how it went..).
man you really hate anthems. and while i love mine...
i agree, fujas. comes in a longer length (and depending on ur weight id say its prob a good idea) but this is one of my favorite skis this yea. the slight rocker make the ski just a hair looser and more playful, and its still sooo soft and smooth. plus i have this thing for vertical sidewalls..
