Just got new punx but havent riden them yet. The selling point for me was their lightweight and atomic just put a thicker edge in this year. Plus Frej landed his dub cork 7 on em last season and their pro team is pretty stacked, which has gotta show something.
The pro team is not really dependent on how good the skis are, its more the fact that Atomic has a shit ton of cash and so can afford some really high class athletes although I do agree with the ski, its fantastic.
The punx are definitely not equivalent. I own both. the weight and flex of the punx are probably the biggest differences. In regards to durability, my ledges have lasted me three years of abuse (i suck) so they are definitely durable. Punx i just got, so i can;t say much.
This is me also. I would say that the ledges haven't proven to be that durable though. But I still ride em even though there's a total of about six inches of edge missing and the bases look like they were attacked by Freddy Kruger.
jon olsson once visited the virgin islands. now they are just called the islands
huck hard, if it doesn't feel right, it just means you're dubbin
