the trouble maker is easily the best ski i've ridden as far as flex, turns, and everything else goes, with the exeption of those pesky blow outs, with the new re-enforced edges will the ski become the jedi lightsaber of the ski world, or will it add to much weight to be atractive??, my bets on the light saber
they have good pop and all, they just noodle when you land so you butter out sometimes and that blows. 175's were too small for me halfway through the season. i recommend if your gonna get TM's, get it atleast the same height as you if not taller.
I got the old TM's for an urban ski, and they are taller then me but I like them enough for me to keep riding them urban and some back woods kicker shit, not too floppy for me but I don't ski them in the park
the TMs have a medium flex. So, as with any skis with a medium flex, anyone weighing over 160 lbs will overpower then on big hits and hard turns. Also, to the creator of this thread, why make a thread making a statement when you don't know for sure? Ride them, then make absurd claims like "best ski ever" (even though we know the ability of the ski is largely based on the rider's preference, size, and skill).
I just want to finish a season healthy, is that too much to ask? :/

My response to kids and people on the chair lift: "yes, I am sure I'm an 8th grade teacher" :)
Is there a rule against teachers having fun and a little style too? Greene county schools represent!
they are under the base i think....you know how edges have the weird shape on the inside to hold in the ski? well the "grind plate" connects to those and holds them in more solid so the edges dont come out. so its not actually a grind plate just kinda looks like it.
