their performance is similar to that of a search bar....
but seriously, if you take good care of your edges it's fine. it takes some getting used to and you have to mantain a centered stance. but after a while it feels just like carving on any other ski. just don't look down at your tips flopping all over the place.
what do you do with your park skis? play racer? - asian_allen
define "alright"... you can carve with plenty of speed on groomers, but you can do that with almost any ski that has a decent flex and sidecut. I wouldn't want a rockered ski if all you do is carve, there are better skis for that, but if you are asking whether you will die on the groomers in between pow runs, you will be fine. rockered skis are relatively versatile, much more so then reverse camber or reverse sidecut.
I have one pair of full-on reverse camber MADE'NS that rail on groomers, so even some full reverse camber skis will ski fine. Reverse sidecut skis are way sketchier on hard pack for turns. Your versatility is gone.
Dude i rock Hellbents everywhere Pow,Park, Groomers, Pipe. They are sick everywhere you just have to getused to the wide waist. the camber doesnt really matter that much in my opinion. you just have to roll the ski over more. i personally think its more fun everywhere.
hellbents in the pipe sounds like it would be a little scary don't know though never skied them
a friend of mine from new england was driving through georgia on a road trip and he ends up getting pulled over for speeding. the cop goes "son you were goin 80 in a 60. no one goes that fast through georgia." my friend responds with "well, Sherman did"
3 of my friends rock package skis everywhere that doesn't mean they perform. I never understood why when people ask questions about ski performance, they always ask "can I use them in the park?". You can use any ski there, I am yet to ski something that is literally impossible to ski in certain conditions. If your a decent skier you can ski anything anywhere, but that doesn't mean it will perform.
