New park skis
So i am about to buy a new pair of park skis but i dont know which, im about 5'9, 140, and i prefer soft skis, although not very soft. I've been skiing for 10 years, and in the park i prefer jumps, but i hit rails to.

Your just a big bag of sketch..
this is probably your best bet of the park skis. But its a little stiff than i think you would want.
Look at the t-hall a bit softer but still an EXCELLENT all around park ski, but not a pipe specific ski like the pipe cleaner.
This will be an excellent all around park. I would alao look into the Alpha 1, Halo, and Triumph for good all around ARMADA skis (im a little impartial to Armada, but they are some good quality skis) The halo will probably be the best out of those three JJ style sidecut, making them all a great choice, but if you want a little softer of a ski, go for either the alpha or halo, the triumph will be the stiffest of all of the armada park (ish) range. SO of armada i would say go for the T-hall or the alpha one.
Just post any additional questions you have.
Hope these helped.
Just to correct you, Aplha is a stiffer version than the Halo, and also has a sintered "race" base,
Triumph is definitley NOT a park ski and dusnt have a "JJ" style sidecut, it is an all-mountain carving ski with no twin tip
Thanks! checking them out now!
Liberty LTE, the bamboo core allows for lots of flex at the tip and tail, but also allowed for a solid underfoot core. Liberty is a solid company and theyre skis have really stepped up this year. You might also wanna look at the morphic if you like fat skis.

I can finally say this without hearing people cry, SNOWBOARDING BLOWS!
Agreed, Triumph is classified as an "all mountain" ski (atleast in Armada's chart thing) but anything that has an 85mm waist isn't really useful anywhere but groomers (atleast not for good float in any soft of crud or pow), so i agree with you the Triumph isn't a park ski, but definitely not an all mountain ski either.
