Question Bout the Cr Johnson's
Hey i bought them off of SAC in the 180cm and i was debating whether to keep them or not....how is this ski???? and what year is it im think it was 05 so tell me w/e u know bout it....im 6'2" and 165lbs......would it be good for 100% park or should i just keep my rossi scratches and sell the Cr's...ne help would be greatly appreciated
all park. I thought they were a little skinny. Im 6ft 170 and i felt they were too light and skinny. I couldnt ski em out of the park
i live in the midwest...not much to ski outta the park
You got a great deal then, and a perfect ski for what you ride. I'd ride them and love em.

I thought they held up pretty well outside of park. They're a little stiff and didn't chatter too bad. And the race base makes them really fast. For the most part, they were great in the park for boosting on jumps, pretty responsive. The edges are missing now though, so ussual salomon durability.
Its only for decoration thats it and thats all. What goes on in the gondala stays in the gondala
so is should keep em?
cr johnsons = spks. spks = 100% park, cr johnsons = 100% park. perfect for you and your height.
Droppin' summer 06'
what I was just gonna say, basically SPK's which will be awesome if you do mostly park
ok since these have race bases they prolly arent to good on rails then r they?
i know any ski can be buttered, but are these too stiff for it to be easy and nautraul looking/ do them with style?
Spartans, tonight we dine in hell!
yea definitely keep those..

yeah, they are stiff and kinda hard to butter. I got mine off SAC a while ago. I like them though.
If I understand correctly, the CR is a Lab ski, meaning it was built in the race room by hand with the same attention to detail and quality materials used in Salomons race skis. These should be sick sticks.

Ok but r they ok for rails or not...cuz i dont wanna totally destroy them
Race bases just mean the bases are soft. They aren't excatly like the pipe cleaners which have thinner edges in addition to soft bases. They should hold up ok on rails, far better than pipe cleaners would. The most damage you would do on them would involve hitting rocks.
