Whats a better ski: 1080's or Chronics
Right now I am riding the 2002 Salomon 720's and i am getting sick of them and need some new skis. I was looking at the Salomon 1080's and the Line Chronics. I do mostly park but once in a while i will go out of the park. What ski is better in the park and whats better on just the normal hill. I heard that the chronics aren't so good on normal downhill runs but thats why i am asking you guys what the real truth is. How do the chronics hold up everwhere on the hill and how do the 1080's hold up. If you could help me out that would me awesome. What ski am i better off going with??
construction wise, there's no contest. The Chronics take it.

Fuck powder straps, I'd rather look cool and search around my giant bomb hole for my skis-'let's take a moment to laugh at everyone on the east coast because we ski Whistler'-Trevorwoulddoit AKA Da
How are the chronics outside of the park?
they kick ass
who the fuck cares!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just fucken ride
My time is winding down.............just wait for it
1080's suck and I know from experience
*~!Ski or die!~*
*~!Live to ski!~*
Over time, most people experience life involving love, suffering, compassion and an unspeakable drive for something new...For me, theres skiing, nothing more nothing less and it encompasses everything everyday im out there. - Pep
my school mates always said that they would fuck anything that could walk. i never saw why i had to limit myself.
chronics. 1080s have foam cores and shit
go with the chrons... you wont find a more enjoyable ski
go with the HEAD Monster 75 chip
dallan the dollar dawg
I have a few sets of 1080's and love em. Foam core or not. The carve well on the groomers and are pretty stable at speeds. I have a brand new set of 151 1080s if your intrested in buying them.
yeah, im going against the majority with my vote for 1080's. i like them a lot, they're fine out of the park, and with an 80mm waist, they're not bad with float...chronics are definitely gonna be stiffer, i've never skied them though.i'll have to do that this season to just to see how they ski
..about the foam core, foam cores are fine, in the beginning they used to break down, but now foam doesnt break down nearly as easily...foam is more predictable and light
The Chronics for sure. I have had problems with 1080's and delamenation. Chronic is supposed to have superior construction.

Ok yes, teneighties delam, and every ski has their quirks, find one of the two that works for you.
I have an absolute shitload of fun on them and if they delam within a year they get replaced... The things I like about my teneighties mainly come from stabilility and floatation, on the rare day, that, god-forbid, my forsaken town gets powder or I feel like actually skiing on soft stuff I can still charge as hard as most people. The teneighties absolutely wallow in moguls, and that's probably the weekest part... outside of that stable, poppy, turn easy.
