4frnt click? also quiver killers
Looking to get back into park this season, and it also may be time for new skis. Currently, I ride 184 line beacons and I love them. I take these everywhere except rails. I also have a pair of 177 Nordic ignitions. I have had these for a while, they were starting to delam before, and I think they are best suited as backyard/summer skis now.
I am 6'1", about 200 lbs (and trying to gain weight from lifting), and I ski very aggressively outside the park. I wasn't great at park before (cleaning up 5's, learning to 2 on, etc.).
For a new pair, I want something that I can ride to the park without it chattering too much, something fun to do little side hits and jibs on, decently durable, etc.
Planning on buying 2010 clicks in 183 (new for a low price), then using quiver killers on them and my bacons (currently have pivot 14's on the beacons). Anyone think this is a good or bad idea?
I have the 2013 click 177cm and love them for their playfulness and I have so much more fun on sidekicks and smaller jibs with these than I had with my old afterbangs. However I'm allot lighter than you so I would guess the click skis might be a bit soft for you especially on the bigger jumps and on the icy days, but for smaller jibs and playing around your probably good.
Durability wise I'm pretty sure they are pretty bad, mostly based on what I have seen others write on here but I have found a few problems with the durability of my 2013 skis to .
Also I don't know how different the 2010 model is from the 2013 model but I know the 2010 model also won some tests for being a really playful and light ski that will fit most park skiers, however it also said they weren't the best choice for hard/icy snow.
No idea about the quiver killers so interested to see what people have to say about those!
