Candide 1.0 vs volkl wall
I am going to purchase either the wall or candide 1.0 from the 2015 line (the white one). I will use these only for park. I currently ski on filthy riches but after skiing on skis like the candide 2.0 realized that I'm not a huge fan of the profile on the filthy rich. I am 5'11 150lbs. I really liked the candide 2.0 but wanted something quicker. The main things I'm interested in are the durability of the walls vs the durability of the candide 1.0, whether the difference in dimensions of the wall and candide will make a difference or not, flex, and how easy they are to spin on.
Wall dimensions: 115,87,115
Candide 1.0 dimensions: 121,90,121
Thanks and +k for help

Volkl skis are usaly pretty durable, my friend has had two pairs of factions and they have both delamed on the tips. It could be just him, but if I had to pick I'd go with the walls
having skied on volkl for some time now, I am impressed with the quality. I have not skied on the factions but would like to think that they should be well made because they cost a million dollars
