09 TNKs or 09 chronics?
Bout to buy some new park skis. Need something real poppy but not too stiff, light weight would be a plus. Im 5'9" 160. Thinking about 175cm 4frnt TNKs or 176cm Line Chronics, both from last year. Gonna mount true center. Who has ridden either of these skis that can give me some reviews/advice? Which would you chose between the two?
I ride the 09 chronics. I got em last year and im ridin them this season. They are pretty light skis. I have the jester on them. They are a little stiff for a jibbing ski. Its hard to press on them. They are still good for jibs they do fine. They are a freeride/park crossover ski. They are pretty poppy so if thats want you wat go for it. I love them they suit me well cus i do both park and backcountry/freeride. They are a sick ski they only thing i have to complain about is that the vinyl on top peels off by the edges as u use them. Overall nice ski.
I would say go up to 180 in the TNK. I'm 5'11" 150 and 175 TNKs are not that stiff for me.

Well center mounted chronics are truely horrible, and it doesn't sound like you're super hard on your gear so TNKs will be a much better ski. Not sure why you have it down to these two though...and go Pipe Cleaners if you can afford them.
