The thing is, everyone wants something different out of their skis - some people want a soft fat ski, some people want a stiff ski thats super durable, some people want a charging ski, some people want a ski that's gonna flow nicely.
It's hard to say, personally I like the ski - it's a bit soft for my liking, so I might have gotten the Chronic or Cryptonite instead, but I wanted to try it out so I went with the Afterbang instead. Is it the best ski money can buy, no, but it is a DAMN good park ski and it's not super expensive. For example some people spend $500 on a park ski that only lasts them a month, but with this ski you can destroy the park and urban just as well, but it doesn't cost nearly as much, that's one MAJOR reason why so many people like them.
