Alright guys. I am just gonna lay it on yall
Im 5' 10" 135 pounds
I am a instructor at my local hill teaching 4 year olds who have never skied before so i need a HELLUVA durable topsheet and overall ski.
I ski groomers about about 70% on days i teach but when i am not teaching, i ski park 100% or super close to it.
I looooveee rails (ski them 70% and jumps 30%) and i am used to a really soft ski (Rossi Scratch FS's. when i tried afterbangs out, the supposedly "super buttery ski", it felt pretty stiff:P)
I am just getting into jumps but i am not hitting anything over 30ft. i hope to try a flat 3 or a rodeo by the end of this season so i will probably be doing more and more jumps in the
Being a 15 year old and having teaching people how to ski as my only job and doing it once a week, i need a low priced ski but NOT a price point ski like the afterbangs.
I have narrowed my list of possible skis to these:
Atomic Punx (2011-2012; they are only $399!)
K2 Domains (2010-2011 or 2011-2012, i dont know if there is a price cut)
Moment Reno Jibs (2010-2011)
Volkl Walls (2009-2010, 2010-2011, or maybe 2011-2012, i dont know if there is a price reduction for next year on the walls or if they have changed anything as far as tech and design)
Armada T-Hall (2010-2011)
Nordica Ace Of Spades (2010-2011)
thats it you guys. if you have other suggestions or feedback, i would appreciate it!!! +K for good sturff!
