Any one have any experience with these and if so what was it like, also would like to know what you would price a used pair at in good condition. I'm a park skier but I'm looking to but a more powder oriented ski for this winter and was looking at a pair, and any one with backcountry days on these please share what they were like
Fun ski but heavy. Its a stable platform for drops and is pretty composed at speed, I like flat/reverse camber so I'm into it but do remember it has no camber.
If you're looking for a ski to take park tricks to the rest of the mountain you can find something better suited for your purposes that isn't so cumbersome.
I would not lug those skis uphill if you are planning on actual BC days.
i actually use these as my one-ski quiver. I also have dukes on them, and have taken them on 2k vert/6 mile+ tours... I love them. They aren't ideal to tour with (obviously), but you can make it happen. Super surfy feel in the pow, fairly decent in the crud considering their size and shape, and actually not bad on the groomers. Definitely takes a stronger skier to truly power them though, being that they're so large.
ps- i have mine mounted dead center
