Yooo need Help pls (Afterbang/Infamous 2014)?
Im looking for new park skiis. I ski mostly park and im an advanced skier and looking for duribility and performance. Wich one do you guys recommend? Atomic infamous 176 or Line afterbang 172 my height is 5"8 (174cm) and im wondering wich one would be the best for me the shorter one afterbang or infamous a bit longer?
They are not the same ski at all. The afterbang is super soft and does not carve well at all. It ok at jibby at slow speeds but if you can ski park already avoid it. The infamous can rip. It is soft in the tip and tail with some early rise but it's stiff enough underfoot to still ride. It's a much better ski if you can already hit a few features.
I would go infamous. The bases are much better then the afterbangs. You will will notice that afterbangs are slow.
Im not sure if I should go for jibby flexy skiis or stiffer skiis ? Feel like u could have so much fun with the afterbangs
The infamous still is in my opinion a soft ski. You will have a better overall experience on the infamous. You shouldn't have a problem buttering the infamous around and pretty much you are going to be able to do the same things as the abangs but the infamous is a tad bit more stable and won't feel too crappy outside the park.
I think the line marketing has gotten to you. Now don't get me wrong line is a good company and the marketing is awesome but abangs would not be my choice from line.
tnx m8! very helpfull! Appreciate it!
