My bro is an x-college football linebacker... so hes like 6 foot 4 250. He needs a new ski that will obviously have to handle what hell throw at it. He doesnt really ride park much, he just likes ridin backcountry/steeps. I had him on the karma before which had done great with everything, but he needs somethin new and is tryin to save some dough gettin one of last years skis. will the brigade hold up? thanks
volkl bridges would certainly be stiff enough and a solid ski, they just wouldnt' be very fun in the park and they're really directional. look into the 07/08 seths in 189 also, they would be my suggestion
yeah i've never actually skied bridges i've just heard they're super stiff and directional. its weird cause everyone says walls are so poppy and fun, but i can't imagine they're that different from the bridges.
I have some 08 scratch bc in 171. At 5'10" 160-170lbs, they are bit too short for me- I really wish I'd gotten the 185s. That said, it's a nice ski, not super super stiff obviously, but still pretty nice.
I think something beefier might be in order for the bro-monster.
brigades if hes not doing a ton of park, blends if hes doing a bit more. brigades are def a medium-stiff flexing ski. he only outweighes me by like 40 pounds and i love them. maybe mojo 94s or prophet 100s? even stiffer, but def not as good in the park,
sounds good. if anyone else wants to add their $0.02 be my guest, until then its lookin .... holy shit a big ass bug just caught my eye crawling on top of my laptop up above the screen, fuckin dorm rooms are filthy.... anyway its lookin like brigades might be a good fit for him
