I want a softer ski, good for butters and presses, but not a crappy one thatll noodle out. it has to be good for ollieing and urban, and really durable. as long as it hold its own on medium to large jumps, im fine with it. light and a good switch ride is ideal, but not needed. i narrowed it down to the t-halls, anthems, disorderlys, fugatives, and im leaning towards the liberty phil larose pro. im 5'5 and 110 lbs. you thoughts?
My friend Big_Spence owns a pair of anthems. They are a solid ski. Super buttery, but he can hit medium and large jumps. Super sick ski. I was probably going to get a pair but i'm getting some reno rockers instead.
I've built up a CC (Captain Crunch) tolerance. its so nice, i can face a box and not scratch the top of my mouth or tongue at all.
I believe that anthems are the ski for you. I tried them out for a few runs down the park, and at 160, i'm not the heaviest hitter on the black. They were very lively, and I could butter like it was nothing, but they were also very stable. The added width was completely dope on rails, and I really can't see these things washing out on you.
anthems, t halls. i have heard about some t hall durability issues so maybe anthems, and they will be sick switch becuase they are cemetrical. hmm i know there are some others but i dont remeber right now haha. i have anthems tho so hit me back if you want some more info on them!
LEGENDARY LONGBOARDS, KONA BIKES, LINE SKIS
there's no way kim jong il is gonna put down the trigger mechanism to 100 nukes and be like "ok tom warrisch, we keep it rear hyphy now, you and me now arries" -no_steeze
They might not be the BEST for pressing and buttering, but they are not bad. You mentioned you wanted a good ski with lots of pop for urban. These have mad pop. The tips and tails are fairly soft for buttering/pressing, but underfoot they are pretty stiff, which makes a really stable ski at speeds for bigger jumps. It also rides switch like a dream. I think it would be the best all around ski for what you are looking for. Hornbeck rides them and doesn't seem to have any trouble pressing/buttering and he's not a big dude by any means.
