Trouble Makers or Scratch FS?
I'm going to get a couple new pairs of skis this season. I spend 50% of my time in the Park/Pipe, and the other 50% hard core in the bumps (not counting powder days). I discovered the joys of the terrain park about 3 weeks before the season ended last year, and in that 3 weeks progressed from barley being able to land a 360...to having 720's and backflips dialed.
I had the chance to ski the Scratch FS (170) last year and really liked it, however they seemed a little soft in the tail. I really like the fact that the ski is designed for a true center mount as well.
I haven't had the opportunity to ski the Trouble Makers, but everything I've read (what little I could find online and in magazines) seemed to indicate that they are a great ski.
I am a very agressive skier (all over the mountain not just in the bumps and the park) and I want a ski that will provide an awesome ride, and hold up well.
I can proform both of them so price isn't an issue at all. Quality and ride is most important. That being said, what are some opinions between the Scratch FS and the Trouble Maker.
Help me make my decision.
ok if you can get two pairs of skiis. get dragonslayers for your park and bumps (or get expressions stiff ski). then get pro for BC or explosives. that covers volkl
for park you can try the new scratch (not FS, has a blue cap) solid ski in bumps.
the stomp is a good BC ski, and when the sugar daddy pimp edition comes out check that out

Ice, snow, man-made, slush, powder, as long as u land on your feet nothing else matters
I would get scracth fs because I bought them and I know which skis to buy... he he
When life gets you down... Go Jibbing!
I encourage you to demo the skis before you buy. The trouble maker is the best product dynastar has ever put out and if you ride it just once you will see what I am talking about. It has pop and it rides switch like it rides forward. I am not lying when I say this ski makes you a better rider, just try it.
I found a shop yesterday that has carries them so I went over and checked them out. Between the info I got from the shop guys (about the TM) and the Rossi rep that came into my store last night, I've decided to go with the Trouble Makers.
As far as demoing before I buy, I would normally do that but all my gear is out west...and I'm not going to be able to get out there until late november, early december.
Thanks for the input.
