alright here's the deal. im stuck between the two skis, ive heard alot of crap about the t-halls being too soft and dont ride well out of the park. im in the park like 80% probably. and is it a huge differcne inside and outside of the park? id like to hear it from people you have riden them, and not from people who heard how they were. and price is not a issue for me at all.
thalls..i ski'd the pe's for a season and they were really versatile but not all that great for park..I ski the tanners now and theyre really fun in the park and do just fine outside of the park..you'll love them. I ski less park than you and they work fine.
please dont reply to this thread if you havent ski's both skis...you can keep spreading rumors about how horrible the tanners ski outside of the park, but i'd recommend trying them before you make your decisions..i love mine.
you should go wiht the k2 i heard alot of shit form the manager form tommmy and for u ryan all u do is rails and he said that the edges rip out real easily on the t-halls and taylor hunter had t-halls and he sai the edges ripped out lik the first 2 weeks or something
get the thalls... i skid them in knee deep pow at jay peak in the glades.. there a little soft but there deffinatly fine outside the park.. as for being a good park ski.. i will never ski another park only ski in my life
PE's suck balls they're stiff as hell and weigh about 100lbs each if you want heavy pieces of shit under you then ride these i hated them and the entire top sheet came off i can poke my wood core and see what the triaxel braiding looks like now IT SUCKS DONT GET THEM EVER go for scratch fs or stl's those are good
how? the t-halls are clearly the better tool for the job if the majority of skiing is gonna be done in the park. if it was like a 50/50 split then the pe's would be the clear choice beacuse of how versitle they are all mountain. the t-halls however ride better than anything i have been on in the park. i have ridden both and i f'n love my t-halls. since money isnt an issue go with the tanners. you wont regret it. they will ride just fine everywhere you just cant bomb runs like before because the ski will start to feel loose underyour foot, almost like it is floating or something. but its not like your gonna try to hit a sick tree line and the ski is gonna become unskiiable all of a sudden. youll get used to them andn when you finally do you will begin to throw down hard in the park
the public enemys skis well outside the park, and they ski well inside the park. the t-halls ski great in the park, and so-so out of it. according to what the man said, he wants his ski to do well everywhere, and isn't a full time park rat.
it's hard to get the best of both worlds. in order to excel in one area, you have to sacrafice in another. if that makes sense to you...
but maybe he likes a stiffer ski? noodles aren't known for their ability to carve and hold an edge, and the t-halls are flat out soft as hell.
yea i dont even know why i took the time to post. but yea im not sayin you are wrong, just throwin in m 2 cents. i mean as long as your slidin around on some snow with skis thats all that really matters right?
i just got some t halls but i havent skied them yet but i have skied on my friends last year and it was the sickest ski ive ever rode the flex points are amazing and i had no trouble with it outside of the park
HOLD UP!! These skis are complete opposites. The publics are super fat and wicked stiff- ive ridden them. If you are concerned about the stiffness of the THall but like armada, you definitely want to check out the AR5's. I ride em now and they will hold up better. Plus they will be better for the rare occasion that you actually hit the slopes
