K2 Domain vs. Rcoil 2014
Whats the better choice? Mainly skiing park, jumps and slides.
Most of the K2 Riders shred the Recoil at the Videos...
Graphics of Recoil looks great.
it all depends on what you want. the recoil will be better at bigger jumps and all mountain skiing because going going to be stiffer with more pop and still has camber underfoot while the domain is a little softer with "jib rocker" (basically flat with tip/tail rocker.

Go with the Recoil, just a better ski, bit bigger tho

ok thats what i mean.
The K2 riders also use the recoil most.
I am just wondering cause its meant to be a all mountain ski and i'm searching for a pure park ski. But if he handles all mountain as well its nice to have for me.
the recoil is a stiff directional park ski/all mountain ski early rise and camber underfoot. its better for bigger features, jumps, things where you need a stiffer ski
the domain is a soft(er) symmetrical park ski with early rise and flat underfoot. its better for rails, jibby things, not as stable on huge jumps
basically which suits your riding style more. if you are charging hard in the park and still ripping lines elsewhere on the mountain, get the recoil. if you are pretty much always in the park and want a softer jibby ski, get the domain. the domain can handle all mountain fine, just not as well as the recoil (lack of camber and softness)
Ok thanks man.
Any other advice?
Maybe another brand?
Any ski which to say thats it for 2014?
imma big fan of the scratch. If your looking at ski that will help you improve your game go with ar7 scratch punx or future spin. all are made with serious competition in mind.
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
someone else compared K2 Recoil and Domain of the year 2014?
I have to pick once of that three...
K2 Recoil, Domain or Atomic Infamous
This may be confusing, and I realize English may not be your first language, but bear with me:
1. The Domain has changed very little, if at all for the third year in a row.
2. The Recoil was called the Iron Maiden last year, and the Recoil the year before that. The same ski, just different names and graphics.
What this means is that you can find older models of these skis online for wicked cheap. The only reason to buy 2014s is if you can't find older models in your size.

Basically it comes down to what you do in the park. Also how tall and heavy are you?
If you're hitting big jumps and large features often then go with the Recoils.
If you're doing mostly rails and medium to small jumps then go with the Domains.
I'm not sure about the Infamous. A friend of mine had them and he destroyed them in less than a month so personally I'm a bit skeptical about their durability, but maybe he just got unlucky.
I like to ski with loose underpants or boxers on so my balls can swish around and chill.
