Does anyone have any comments on the 4frnt tnk. ill be riding mostly park and i wil be getting the 155 length.
ok..I will probably get some hate for this....But TNKs aren't the bombs that NS makes them out to be. Think about Suspects, NS makes it sound like they explode, because some people had edge problems(way past fixing) BUT most of those people got a pair that didn't look good from the start. Because a few people on NS said it, now alot of people think Suspects are like strapping C4 to your feet because they read they have edge problems. Dumonts are the exact same ski with double edge armour..which would only make the problem worse. Alot of people don't know that, and they say the dumont is a good durable ski, when it is actually just a Suspect, which doesn't actually explode on you feet for 98% of people. The people who had problems either had a fluke pair(yes, there were too many) or got a pair that already had an edge seperated from the sidewall, which is obviously going to have quick edge problems..
Now, TNKs: the 07 model has different construction than the 09 model. The 07 model turned into a total noodle in a month, and had terrible edges(for hard skiers, that is true). The 09 model doesn't turn into a noodle in a month, and hasn't had the edge problems that the 07s did. There are a few people on here that ride 09 TNKs and love them(whoever has that superman icon is one of them) and have ridden them all season.
The biggest factor here though is that he is looking at 155s, which means he is very small, which means his skis aren't taking the weight of a full sized person...
thank you guys all for the help!!
well im 5'4" and about 135-140 pounds. hope that helps :)
