before you hate on me too much for making just ANOTHER thread concerning hellbents, i would like to let you know that i picked through the hundreds of hellbent threads and found a sfb vs bent thread but it didnt relate to me and i didnt want to bump an old thread so i made my own.
skill level- powder: i am confident in my abilities in all the inbounds terrain at the three moutains i ski at. droped 20' cliffs last seson and looking to progress. hit 15-30 pow booters. not really any experience in switch pow skiing since my foils were not exactly perfect for it. all mtn-I wouuld like to ski these on some days that wernt strictly pow days. maybe some crud and choppy pow. I would also like to be able to ski groomers well . i also want to be able to take this ski into the park and play around with it on jumps, stalls, taps, barrels, etc. i want a ski that is really soft and butterable. i like the idea of the hellbents rocker but have never ridden a rockered ski.
location- i ski in the north west, in southern idaho. my home mountain averages 300in a year and last year got like 450 or something, o there's no lack of fresh.
Price- I would be getting 09 line sir francis bacons and 08 K2 Hellbents.
there is a 200 dollar price differance and i was planning on getting the 179 bents if i chose those
i want a soft ski that floats amazing, that skis switch pow well and also rips on groomers.
please dont suggest other skis because i have narrowed it down to these two.
also i dont care how overplayed hellbents are or how many kids have them. i was also thinking of putting griffpons on these.
these will be part of a quiver of two skis 175 atomic urban punx and either of these.
thanks if you can help
