I know my text was a bit weird, but we are on the same level..
When i read my post i was like thats a weird text and i also said schmuck where i ment Schmies..
here are some pics of the rocker differences;
and the obsethed rocker:
i always thought the measurments for rocker was when they still had camber, not when they are compressed, if so the amount of camber in my reno jibs from last years gives me a niec "rockered" ski when compressed
hmmmmm ........ maybe some companies do it different.
all i know is that they deffinitly do measure K2s rocker while being "compressed". corect me if i am wrong.
You're the only one who understands this apparently here, but you are a bit off. The 5mm is how far the ROCKER is off the ground when de-cambered, not the tip, and the 30 is how long the ROCKER is behind where the normal tip starts. A normal tip has about 5.5cm rise and is about 14cm long, so that means with the KF rocker, the tip rise is about 44cm long and 6cm tall when de-cambered.
And somebody said I'm not sure how de cambering the ski makes the rocker longer.... well go take your normal cambered park ski and look at the tip rise and length, then push the skis together and watch the rise and length of the tip rise grow! It works the same with rocker/camber/rocker obviously..not sure how else to explain.
all that make sense?
And last thing to note is that some brand's skis(EHP, Lhasa Pow, 2010 Gotama, even LL2s) have either all tip rise from rocker or almost all then a low profile tip. IMO this is just so much smarter, the normal tip shape on the end of rocker isn't going to help in pow, and that wierd angle it goes out at will hit crud and throw you around more than a ski with a tip that sticks out straighter, which will slice through. With Lhasa's(if I'm remembering right), it's pretty much a non stop curving rocker that isn't super long with a fair amount of tip rise, which some people say is best in pow. So the K2 rocker shape is kinda stupid IMO.
