Volkl ac3 Vs. Volkl ac20
For an intermediate skier looking to have fun on skis what would you recommend? ac3 or 20...
has anyone tried either?
If you go to volkl's site and keep going right in their ski selector thing to all the twin tips, you'll find skis that people on here know more about. Plus they're probably more fun than normal skis, although those can be fun too.
motherdrizzlinSL: no, it was disturbing. I thought my fecal matter was going to retreat back into my bowels.
check out the womens line, the volkl luna and volkl estrella, luna has a composite core whereas the estrella is wood, so its somewhat stiffer, both have the same side cut and tip waist tail measurements, i think its something like 124/73/94. They both also use the same binding, markers single-cam heel piece.Id reccomend looking at the womends skis and not so much the ac3 or ac20, the womens binding system on their skis is set a a certain ramp angle to reduce knee ligament tears
sex in any kind of water, shower, pool, ocean, etc feels terrible. Doesn't feel like a vagina at all, it feel slike... jerking off with a wet hand - Infernohits

check out the Kendo, that thing is a blast and with 88 underfoot, it wont limit you too much, also from what i rode at last years tradeshow, the X Wing Series with the wood core(XW Storm, XW Tornado) was a lot more fun than the Volkl AC, for groomers
main difference is going to be stiffness. i believe the stiffness increases as the number increases (ac30 would be stiffer than ac30) so basically, for an intermediate skier i would say you are going to be able to have more fun on the ac20.
these are pretty strictly carving skis meant to stay on groomers. they have a pretty large sidecut and are going to float well without catching an edge and throwing you over the tips.
if you want something that you can bring into bumps, glades, a bit of pow, and trying park, start looking at some twin tip skis instead. im not exactly pushing you to buy twins (it doesnt seem like you need them) but if youre looking to get break free from the average skier, you wont be able to get far when you are using groomer/carving skis.
*they are NOT going to float well without catching*
Really need more info to suggest a ski. Such as where do you usually ski, what type of skiing do you do, and weight/height.
Skiings not a SPORT...Its a LIFESTYLE
Go to the Volkl Attiva Sol
Basically its the ladies version of the AC20. It will be more playful and easier to turn because it's a softer flexing ski for a woman.

And has the women's shape they started last year, deeper sidecut in the tip and shallower in the tail, with a reduced ramp angle in the binding system to help with knee strain, and strategically placed less dense woods to customize flex and swing weight.
That being said, this only makes sense if the skis are for you, and you are in fact a girl. Oh, and newschoolers, not really the place to ask questions about directional all mountain skis. There's a bit of knowledge here, but twins is the primary focus.
for what it's worth, i think they're both pretty boring skis. i didn't feel like i got very much feedback out of a turn from either of them. you point em, they do what you want, but they're not fun, if that makes sense. i find dynastars stuff to be a lot more enjoyable, livelier, and snappier, but it totally depends on your style of skiing. some people love volkl stuff, but it doesn't really excite me. that said, check out women's specific gear though, you'll more than likely be happier with it in the long run because of all the little tweaks to the construction that make them perform better for a woman's biomechanics.
thanks all...its for my bf haha hes 6foot 200 lbs. twin tips r mostly park or freeskiing too? hes a good skiier but didnt like the k2crossfires he had last year, so a little nervous to get skis that rnt as enjoyable. any other recommendations then?
