I wanna know who rides what?? Im a line skier!
Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
If I was forced to only ski one brand(or, IF I COULD HAVE ANY OF ONE BRANDS SKIS, AND NO OTHER BRAND) then it would be Moment for sure.
They cover my needed or at least funnest quiver of three:A park ski: Jibs or freebirds, a pow jib ski: 188 night trains, and a longer charging somewhat directional ski for touring, aimed at pow:190 Bibby(although, with it's shape a 197 would be cool and turn short still). They also have the best bases(most durable, yet not slow) and edges(durable, no problems) on the market, along with ski design smarts, and light strong cores/materials. And they are good people. So there you go.
The second choice would be 4FRNT(188 CRJ for pow jib, 193 EHP for charge/tour, and YES, TNKs for park. all those TNK problems haven't been showing up in heavily used 09s, 4FRNT used a different edge glue or something I didn't understand..and better topsheet/sidewall(the better sidewall also helped).
ON3P also might fill that 3 ski quiver..(with blue steel, caylor, and great scott). Surface makes sick skis too. ARMADA can also fill it with Pipe Cleaner, JJ(or ARG) for pow jib, and ANT(although they need a 115ish waisted, more tip than tail rockered, tip tapered 195ish ski).
all that being said, I own 181 Pipe Cleaners, 189 LL2s, 170 WLs and soon to be 195 333 customs.
