So here's the deal, after this season I will most likely not be with Line anymore (long story short, I want other options and I'm probably giving up my spot for another kid at Sundown who slays). Now, here's where the "other options" come in, I want to check off some skis on my "hit list" - basically what you see below are the skis I've never skied before but really want too (no, these are NOT the ONLY skis I've never skied before, there are plenty out there, these are just the ones I've been wanting to try). I'm looking for TWO pairs of new skis (pretty much positive both will be 2011 models), ONE pair that is rockered, and ONE pair that is regular cambered.
Rockered (will be paired with P14s):
ON3P Jeronimo (I'd probably just get the 2010 model cause I don't really want to wait)
Rossignol S3 (like the idea of the "rocking chair" rocker on these)
Armada Alpha (1)/Halo (Alpha 2) (they're Armada…not much more needs to be said)
Cambered (will be paired with either STH 14s or FKS 140s):
Liberty LTE (light, poppy, bamboo core)
Rossignol S4 (heard excellent things)
Armada THall/AR7 (these are the only skis on the list I've owned before, I owned the 07 Scarface THalls and the 09 AR6…but they're both new next year so they're back on my "hit list")
The regular camber ski will be a 95% park ski, the rockered will be an 85% park ski - it is the east coast, we don't get much pow and the trails around aren't the most exciting things in the world. My park ratio is 75% rails 25% jumps. I deal with TONS of ice so they need to be able to hold an edge. They need to be able to take a beating and be very well rounded. I'm 5' 8" and around 160 lbs, I ski pretty aggressively (level 3+ skier).
So here's the deal:
1) Give me all the info you've got on the skis above, I'm really only looking for first hand experience (I know plenty about the specs and whatnot of them - I just want to know how they are in real life), I know a lot of you haven't had experience with the 2011s yet, but if you've owned previous years tell me what you think.
2) Tell me, if money was not and issue, which rockered ski would you pick AND which regular cambered ski would you pick.
3) If you have other options, go for it, but I'm looking for something new that I haven't ridden before so I'll be taking that into consideration.
The reason I'm trying to make my choice now is so that I can budget out my summer so I can afford all the things I need for the winter and still have a kick ass summer. So, help me out guys, what do you think?
