Ok, so i'm having a really tough time deciding wether to get the domains or the punx. I primarily ski park, but ocassionally i'll ski some woods trails or groomers. Both skis seem like really good skis and really buttery, which is what i'm looking for. I primarily hit jumps 40 feet at the biggest. It seems to be that the punx is a little bit lighter then the domains, so i'm just a bit worried how much heavier the are. Lastly, i'm about 5'9" and about 140 lbs.
Surface swaps and butters will be better with the domains, but the punx are easier to throw around for bigger spins out and standard swaps. Really light. Quite contrasting but the punx is a great ski. The durability on both of them is top notch as well.

Hello future me,
I had no expectations for you. So anything you have done is a plus for both of us. Good job! -iAfterBang
Think about who rides them. Domains: Stept crew, Punx: Jossi Wells, Chug, etc.
Domains are designed for a more jibby, playful style of riding, while the Punx are designed for a more traditional and jump heavy style.
I work at Mt Hood Summer Ski Camp. PM me with questions.
eh, not particularly true. the Punx are made to be buttery and playful, but still handle great on larger jumps. The K2 (from experience) is going to flex out much more easily on imperfect landings. Maybe it was just me, but when I tried my friends punx, they were much better on jumps than i expected.
pumx are more playful. to me the domains feel dead, with little pop, but rather heavy and very soft. punx are alot lighter, poppier, and faster edge to edge. i use my domains for urban, since they can take more abuse tho.
and the above video should prove that they arent specifically a jump ski. a jump/comp ski to me is one like the ace of spades. with metal and a race bace. or the pipecleaner.
Still not quite sure what ski to get haha. But, i have just one more question. If i were to get the punx should i get the 164 or 173 and if i were to get the domain should i get the 169 or 174. Btw, im about 5'9" and about 140 lbs.
