I'm looking for a new pair of skis. I want something in the 92-105 ish range. I've been looking at the k2 shreditor 92 and line chronic, any thoughts on these? I want to be able to ride pow with them so at the very least they need some early rise, if not full rocker. Also want them to be buttery for the park and rest of the mountain. If you have any suggestions, or have a thread with skis for sale, thrown them my way!
I'd look at 95-105. That being said take a look at the PB&J, large amount of rocker, can surf pow and shred the mountain. A friend of mine rides them 100% in the park so they are park capable as well. I'd also look at the Icelantic Gypsy (105) and shreds everywhere, great un pow
Armada ARV. 95-98 under foot, rockered tip, stable underfoot with mid stiffness in the tip and tail but still really playful, and super responsive. They're my daily driver for all conditions. 130-95-119 so they float really well in soft stuff too.
Personally I find the shredditor 90s and chronics a little too skinny for pow. Every time I misjudge the fresh snow and bring my chronics up instead of my pow skis, I end up making hop turns through the fresh stuff... Kinda shitty.
If you truly want to be able to park and pow I would go for something at least like 100mm under foot. Recommendations would be Kartel 98, shredditor 102s or the revision Tailsmans if you want to save some money, yet they're a little skinnier.
moment pb&j... super fun and fun flowy when there is some fresh, and they definitely have a charge mode when you push them. so good. let me know if you have any questions, i've had mine for 3 years now.
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
I have the rossignol slat and love them. They are advertised mainly as a park ski but perform very well all over the mountain. I have them mounted -1 back and have had them up to 13inches and still did fine. By no means as per say the kartel 106 or Armada JJ but still good. Also you can find last years for cheap.
It's a bit older but the rossi s3 is a super fun ski to jib around in. It's pretty lightweight and floats pretty well in decent stuff and of course its super buttery. The biggest downside is if you are a heavier dude and like to rail on your edges like a racer they get a tad sketchy.
If you want something a bit stiffer check out the Candide 2.0's or Kitten Factory all mountains.
