2016 After bangs or 2014 traveling circus
I am having trouble deciding to go with the new afterbangs or the 2014 traveling circus I am worried the after bangs will not last long or get heavy and be too noodle like but I don't weigh much and don't really like jumping of any thing over 40 but the only thing I am not sure about with the traveling circus is if they are flexible enough I don't want something too stiff
The traveling circus is a noodle. Arguably the softest ski on the market, and one of the softest ever made.
Never rode the aban but from what I've seen, they are heavy with a medium flex.
SIP J.P, Sarah, Warnick, C.R., Shane, and all those lost.
I think the Icelandic Da Nollie is exactly what you want. The 2015 model is on Powder7.com for $323 which i believe is the lowest out there. These would be perfect for you, and are very durable

I posted in your ski gabber thread but gonna reply here more specifically on the TC ski (basically the Anthem which I've been riding for a few years).
They are a soft ski but I've always found them stable enough for booters up to around 60/70ft, you just have to be solid on your landings, you can also ride them ok in powder and charge them pretty hard before they get too squirrely, as long as you can actually ski well.
They're best for jibbing and rails though, that's what they're made for, the extruded bases will mean they should hold up pretty well even if it means sacrificing a bit of speed, just keep 'em waxed.
Definitely one of the most fun skis I've ridden (been riding 27 years) and I never thought they couldn't handle what I was throwing at them.
If you want a dedicated park ski for rails and smaller jumps I reckon you'd enjoy them, if you want a charger though I'd look for something a bit stiffer, definitely not an A-bang
Hope that helps.
