what's the best half and half ski? not talking about rear-mounted all-mountain twins that perform poorly in both park and pow, like shitty old public enemies, but more along the lines of the on3p j-mo or moment pb & j. skis that can be used as serious park skis, but can also charge.
so: what is the best one-quiver ski for the serious skier?
There are TONS of 50/50 skis out there, it just depends on what your park ski/pow ski preferences are. Obviously there's no true park ski that kills the pow (or vice versa) though, these are ones that a decent at both (some slightly more park, some slightly more pow, some right in the middle).
- ON3P Jmo (and maybe even Jeffery depending on your idea of park)
- Rossi S3, Scimitar (S5), Sickle (S6)
- Atomic Blog
- Salomon Shogun
- Line Blend
- K2 Kung Fujas
- Scott Dozer
- Faction Prodigy STP
- Armada TST (or I even seen kids slay park with JJs)
For me im not a fan of the 50/50 skis. Id rather spend the extra money and have a dope park ski and a dope pow ski. Ive had A 50/50 ski as my first ski and didnt like it. they ski well in the park but when it comes to fairly deep pow it was horrible!

yer you are 100% right! they wont slay the deepest of pow and you wont be hitting rails like you would on something like the punx or ar7's. however, as a person who owns suspects (amazing park ski, shit durbility), the line blends can hit most of the features almost as well as the suspects and when it comes to powder, its the skier a lot of the time, not the skis! You could put sean Pettit on my suspects and i could be on armada JJ's and he would still shred better then i would.
