Volkl Expressions or Atomic Tweaks
I ski in ohio on mainly ice. i ski prolly 50% park 50% groomers. we have no powder. i was wondering which ski would be best for me. i wanted to look at a liberty ski but i couldnt find a site with them. so let me know if one of them would be any good and where i could look at them at. thanx
liberty... volkl and atomic both suck from what hear on this site
The volkls are pricy, but well built.

Think for yourself!
You would be perfectly happy skiing on any companies twin. And if you care that much about having the right NS approved sticks you are not a true skier and are just another poser.
As if Atomic and Volkl don't make great skis. Thats one of the problems with this site is kids spewing what others post as the truth. Sorry for the harshness, I had to get that off my chest...
And in my opinion(which is just my opinion) the Volkl would work best for you.
^ hey jetski i didn't mean it like that you took it the wrong way i just told him i approved libertys and other people don't aprove volkl or atomics on this site read before you talk please
Read what? your post where you say other people don't like the skis. Second hand info told three times over does not equal the truth. Figure that out quickly if you are serious about repping. Speaking of which... here is some advice take it or leave it.
Reps that trash on other companies are not respected and don't last long. The most annoying thing to hear is "blank" company sucks we are so much better. I have helped two shops with orders and I have seen certain lines get dropped because of moronic comments or actions of reps.
bro i don't really know what you are talking about first off i didn't trash talk about volkl or atomic i don't get what your saying im saying people on this site don't like volkl or atomic compared to companies like armada,liberty,ninthward, etc.. that's what i meant that like really man im sorry if you thought something else but that's really what i meant do you get what im saying yet
You said they suck based on other peoples opinions. Form your own. The rep advice is cause I read some posts of yours about wanting to be one. I'm not pissed at you or anything(notice I haven't called you a fag) Just trying to help you out by telling you to conduct yourself professionally. Even if you personally find out Atomic and Volkl suck it would be in you best interest to keep it to yourself. Most of the reasons given for not liking skis are based on cosmetics and nothing more. (Oh yeah Atomics do look like poop) Do you get what I'm saying?
both of em r good skis i'd say the volkls tho, no real reason but its pretty much a coin flip for which one u want

everyone i know who skis on tweaks really likes them. expressions are really really narrow, so if you like bumps, they may be good for that but they are a "cheaper" ski than the tweaks, both in price and construction

Volkl's are well built skis.

Yeah, my Expressions are extremely narrow, but if you like your twins stiff then go for them. They can be found relatively cheap to. I'm rocking my 3 season old (maybe older) Expressions and the skis don't matter so much as you'd like them to. Sure every day i dream of a different ski, but for the price i paid considering how little money i had, the ski holds up well.
Here Comes A Special Boy!
tweaks are good for all mout=ntain and are light as hell. they are good.
i cant take him[liam downey] seriously cuz his name reminds me of that downy bear from back when i was a kid -d loc
I don't deny there are bad things in the US right now, hell, 51% of the country to be exact. But god damnit, our country being fat is NOT a problem. I do't give a shit how fat people are. hell, fat kids are harder to kidnap, that means our country is safer.
go line or if not get the tweaks. there better
ing is like sex. its hard and fun and you keep getting better at it.
Who ever said that Volkls aren't good should suck my dick. Volkl makes the best skis out there.
that sounded so sexual
Volkl DOES make great skis, but the expression is a lower end ski than the karma or the now deceased v-pro.

i live in ohio, and i ski the same amount of park/groomers on the same type of snow, i have expressions and they have held up fine on our shitty snow. I cant say which is better i've never rode tweaks, but my expressions def get the job done well.
'skis are like girls , the more you have the better'
Karma's are real nice. I had a pair of Tweaks and they aren't bad, nice and light skis with good grip all mountain. Versatile, save for deep powder. I was happy with them. I'd like to try out some Karma's though.
Time for a new signature.
As to what was posted above, I bet $100 that you cant
find any negative info on the tweaks on this site that are
justified (ie: other than people saying things like "atomic
sucks" ect) Everyone who has skied them has liked them
other than maybe some personal pref's on stiffness and
For my opinion, I have not skied the Volks but I have skied
the Tweaks and many other twins (1080's, various lines, ect)
I live in Michigan so the conditions are about the same.
I loved the tweaks, they are stiff as hell but I like my skis
stiff. They are very light also. I ski 40 park, 60 other.
They handel ice GREAT. I have taken them out west
and they worked in pow pretty good too. Good luck.
NOT THE TWEAKS
