So, I can get amazing fucking deals on both (99€ NEW, fuck yeah Europe!) And I want to pick up a pair just because I can't let a bargain like that go by. I don't need a new park ski currently, but my park ski's won't last forever!
Me: 1.98m/6"5, 88kg/195 lbs.
Ski would be pretty much park only. Though, the TJ's are advertisded as a BC powder ski - is this true? (always a nice extra when it's not too deep)
183 TJ - 116-88-116
185 Colby - 166-83-116
Pretty similar, I'm just need/want to know how stiff both are.
Currently I ride the Punx (82mm under foot), I love their softness, but I'd like to try something stiffer too, and I know both the CoreUPT's are. Just which one is stiffer, and which would you recommend for me?
Would I benefit much from the extra 2cm on the Colby's?
At first I was thinking about the Colby's because I like carving into jumps, but I reckon the 88mm under foot combined with the 'bc' ability of the TJ's would make the ski a LOT more versatile. The Colby's have an 18m radius, the TJ 20m.
Were talking the 09/10 models here. I know it's a futile argument, but the TJ's graphics are AWESOME (with the little spookies on) and the CJ's are horrible (with skulls and what not).
