12/13' 4FRNT Switchblade, anybody??
looking to know how this ski is as far as durability and performance, mostly skiing about 50/50 as far as rails and jumps go. the graphics on these look sick so i was just wondering if anyone has owned, know someone who owns, or has tested these and can give some kind of a review one em.
I've got a set of 181 Switchblades and I love em! Not the most buttery ski out there but their tough as fuck as you can still charge hard. Definitely shine on kicker's though, super solid. I'm not big on rail's but I've never had an issue with them. Pretty heavy for a park ski, but I get zero chatter. Trade-off being as I said before, not super buttery.
Hope that helps
Just myself the 181s as well. I ski hard in and out of the park and these are the most fun park ski ive ever owned. I mounted them dead center and they still grip hard as fuck. So much pop, no chatter, stomps anything at high speeds. Its a stiff ski so if youre looking for something flexy and forgiving, this isnt it. But i'm 5'9 175 and so pumped whenever im on my switchblades.
I have the 176's (grew into them to much unfortunately) I love them they really surprised me on how sturdy they are out of the park even with a center mount. They are also way more playful then I expected because people were saying how stiff they were. I have not had a chance to get them out on a decent sized jump because of this sick east coast ice shards but they are really solid on rails and have a very low swing weight. Durability has not been an issue the top sheets are like new although I do have a little cracking in my edges. I would definitely recommend them
