Yes the 08/09 ones are stiffer than the ones before. Great park ski but we don't know much about what you like to ski and how tall you are etc. so we can't really tell you if it would be a good ski for you.
key..lemme me see.. im over 175 tall but im not sure how much i weight..not much anyway
I ski 30% all mountain 70% park but i have old silencers that i can use elsewhere than park..i dont do much jumps. At least not big ones. So im more keen on railing i guess
