i wonder how many people in this thread have ever actually ridden a rockered ski in the park, especially on any features bigger than 20 ft. rockered skis are really fun in the park, but are not necessarily fit for the task. Butters are easier, yes, and in general, you can do more "fun" things with ease, such as noseblocks, presses hand drags, and so forth. As far as being "more forgiving" on jumps, this is simply not true. Yes, you may be able to spectacularly save yourself from a near death experience after landing backseat, but this does not make them more forgiving, since that noodling out would not have occurred on a stiffer, standard cambered ski. I ride my EPs in the park regularly, and only because I enjoy it more. Its an entirely new way of skiing park. Were I on my park skis, I could certainly spin more, get more tech on rails, and have a more stable landing platform, but the softness and width of the EPs, along with their generous rocker is so much more fun to ride park with, in the purest sense. Trying to compare a park ski to a rockered ski, particularly a ski such as the EP is a square peg/round hole situation.The two are not directly comparable, as they are intended for different uses. Rockered skis in the park are really fun, but dont necessarily think that you will have the same or even a similar experience riding them. Also, not all rockered skis are the same. Rockered skis can range from
super stiff (Moment Garbones) to super soft, (EPs). You cant expect to
find a definitive answer when there is so much variety of rockered skis. It really boils down to what you want out of the ski, not what its intended use is
