I'm in a pinch here. My '08 Invaders are seeing their last days; I can't carry speed for jumps anymore, and the edges are falling apart (I've thrashed them for the last 2 and a half years and they've held up fine). But, they are now in need of replacement. I have choices of 179 Extremes for $280 and 177 Afterbangs for $319.
I really liked my invaders, but I want a ski that is a little stiffer for jumping. Basically I am not sure which of these two skis to get, and I would like to get one of them today. Please post if you have any preference. I'll be using them for jibbing/jumping/urban.
I'm 6'1, 180 lbs.
Thank you very much for responses.
