Should I sell my skis?
So in 2012 I bought the Armada pipecleaner in a 166cm. Even 2 seasons later I find them pretty stiff. I only weigh about 140lbs and am 5'7. I find it hard to pop onto rails and butter stuff. So, should I sell them and buy something soft? If so, what is a really soft ski that can still handle bigger jumps?
no shinbang, all afterbang
i would, since you don't weigh much any more flexible ski would do better for you and still be able to handle well.
Since you don't weigh much a pow/all mtn ski would be good. Don't let the pow/all mtn scare you off though, many people like their rails, butters, and jumps with these types of skis. Surface is having a sale on their last years skis on their site. You could get a pair of live life's, new life's, next life's, or one times for 200-250 dollars.
The K2 domain is designed for butters, tranny finds, Ollie/nollie, and rails. They're kinda softer but should be solid on jumps to roughly 40 feet. Honestly, you'll have to decide if you want a softer, more playful ski, or a stiffer one that can handle large jumps.
