Well last year being the first year twintipping I got the 03/04 K2 PE's (with rossy P110's) I bought the PE's because they were stiff, and what I was told was that stiff skis were good. Ihey were great, but this year I was looking for somehting more park specific.
For this past season I was on the 04/05 Line Skogan Sprang skis. Again I went with something stiff, and something short. Where I ski, the jumps are all under the 35 foot range (with the exception of a 45ft spine), so I bought the 158's.
It wasn't up until recently that someone was telling me that Skogan Sprang is a heavier weight guy, and me running in at a whopping 125lbs should have gone with a softer ski. I really enjoy the pop the stiff ski gives you, but from what I understand, soft skis perform better on groomed and icy conditions because they don't chatter that much, and that the Skogans were designed for backcountry (something I was not aware of when getting my skis).
So now I'm panicing thinking I could have had a better season of riding had I gotten somehting softer. The other issue is the length. As I said above, the jumps where I'm at (Dagmar) are small, so I didn't see the point in a long ski. Some people swear up and down long skis are stable ect.ect. and I don't doubt them, but I don't think you'd feel that much of a difference until you get into some big scary jumps.
So when it comes right down to it, should I get something softer, something longer, one or the other, or stick with what I've got?
