Pete57Looking for serious park skis before I go to college in colorado I am currently 5'10 160 lbs begginer park rider (simple rail grinds, flat spin 3s) I am wondering what size I should go with and if I should get a fully cambered ski or one with a tip rocker. I am currently looking at the revision tailsman and dime ski but I dont know what size I should get and which ski would be better for me. Currently riding all mountain k2 shredditor twin tip. any advice
dimes are really stiff and are a traditional cambered park ski which means theyre poppy, good for groomers and good for landing big jumps. talismans are a little fatter and softer. theyd be better if youre looking for a one ski quiver and want to ski some ungroomed snow because they're rockered in the tip and are wider. also theyre good for buttering and having fun in the park. overall revisions are pretty sick skis and they are the only company who warranties edge damage from rails, so theyre a good choice. it comes down to what you want to use them for and your style. for size id say go for the 176. you could go 181 but shorter skis are generally better for people who are starting out.
