I have a chance to get these for really cheap and was wondering what people think about them. I live on the east coast and this would only be used for powder days going out west backcountry kickers and fooling around. I already have ar5s for park. Are these fun to ski or are they really gnarly cuz they're 188. I want something thats gonna be fun to ski switch in powder and fun to just fool around on. I also could get the big trouble for really cheap to. So much one would be the better ski for me? I'm 5 10 140
Can the Jps handle groomers somewhat like not rip turns but atleast be able to tip up on edge. And how fun are they to fool around with like jibbing around on stuff or are the geared more towards big mountain
You can ski anything on groomers. If spats can be skied on groomers why cant jps?Theyll just be more work(not noticeable to me) on the groomers to tip em on edge. And if the Jps are your deffinition of a big mtn ski your a dumbass. They're just a fat ski with minimal sidecut and super soft.
you said that the maden's would be better earlier how do they compare I live on the east coast so I want something that I can ski in trees and that will be fun in the blown snow whales that we get, it doesn't have to be great in park just like an everywhere jib ski
the lizzies are super fun apparently and there 110 which is perfect. i think they would be the most fun to mess around on, think about it; there designed by eric pollard and all he does it travel and have fun skiing
Madens have more sidecut and are just a touch stiffer-not really noticeable. The sidecut will make them much easier to turn quickly in the trees. Some people even think they can be to quick at some times. Very turny ski. Jps are more of a go-sraight-ski, the Madens are turners. BTW if you havent seen BLOOD's thread on TGR check it out. 07 Madens he'll sell for cheap. I think he said the price was $430. I may be mistaken though.
ive found my jps to be super agile, even though im only 5'8". they are really nice and light.
they rip pow, regardless of pitch. they are an awesome ski.
the big trouble is a very dope ski too, but if youre looking for more pow and stuff, jp is an excellent choice.
Big Troubles in a 176. I'm 185lbs and ski the 186 for powder and crusing only. One tip delammed after one day hitting big kickers so I have a seperate park ski now. That aside, I really like them all round. They're a good firm flex (compared to the JP's very soft flex) and I don't think you'll need the width of the JP on the east coast. The sidecut on the Big Trouble will be nicer for groomers too.
I have a pair of last year's made'ns in excellent condition that i want to sell. they have rossi axial2 120 bindings on them. these skis are like my favorite ski ever but i have to sell them because i'm really low on money. these skis can handle anything and since they have so much sidecut, they are some of my favorite groomer skis as well. this is a super fun ski. the price is $450. message me if you're interested.
