Hello Newschoolers, I am looking for a slightly narrower pow ski than my 115mm Sir Francis Bacon's. I want this to be a dynafit touring set up than can ski switch well. I had the Salomon Rocker2 108 in mind, but have heard that it isn't a playful ski, what are your thoughts? I also see that the Sir Francis Bacon is now a 108 waist, perhaps its worth sticking with what works.
The rocker 108 is a super playfull ski. It has the symmetrical rocker o the rocker 122 and it also features the honey comb tip and tail which make the swing weight very low. Abma was using the 108 as his park ski last season. If your looking for a ski that will handle the whole mountain and still let you jib around its a great choice. However as a touring ski I would go q108 instead. The tip of the q108 is the same but it does not use the rockered tail so it will make the ski s more effective. So if you plan on skinning go q108 if your boot packing and side country the rocker will be super fun.
