w_skiermost of my skis are lines so the only other ones I could compare to are the chronics and afterbangs. The afterbangs were like perfect flex wise but the weight kind of blows and then the chronics are too short and they've just been sitting in my room since before I knew how to butter
how you you describe the softness? do they just sort of fold or do they kind have some dampeness/spring/push back to them?
idk how they compare to afterbangs in stiffness but theyre generally a much better ski, that's for sure
i havent touched a chronic in years but id imagine the talismans are def softer than those
but yeah the talismans are soft but have a good feel to them and def push back. if they were just noodles id hate them. nollying, manualling, etc theyre great for. but they also hold up pretty damn well in all mtn riding-- i skied them at resorts all year and on a pow day with plenty of cliff drops and rough landings, they don't just fold on you
