^^^ I never said I didnt ride mine in the park. Hell for the first 3-4 months of last season all I had was my 189s and yeah I took them to the park a lot. When I finally stepped onto some 04/05 Scratch BCs which I got for park the first thing I did was a standing pop and hit a hip. I popped about 3x higher than with my Seths and boosted off the hip about twice as high. It actually did wonders for my park skiing cause everything was so easy on actual park skis. I owned the 179s two seasons back and they were the shit in the park.
