Which ski would be best for me?
So i have 2009 line chronics and the tail is broken and the edge is
cracked so they are not able to be skied anymore. I am gonna send them
back to backcountry and hopefully get a refund. I should have like a
$300 credit to backcountry then.
These are my top choices but i am having trouble deciding on which one i want.
Atomic Patent 175
Atomic Punx 173
Line Chronic 176 i am hesitant about these because i had them and they broke
Volkl Ledge 176
4frnt TNK 175
Also if anyone else recommends any skis on backcountry post in this thread and let me know so i can consider them too.
I want something that will ski similar to the chronic but not break on
me. Also i hear the ledge is pretty soft and that sketches me out about
The patent has 95 waist and i am concerned about going from 85 to 95.
so if anyone has any advice about any of these skis or any other post in this thread
K+++ for help
my buddy has had ar6's for the past couple of seasons and he is so hard on them but they have help up perfectly
Im not sure about most of those skis but i know the punx and the patents are pretty soft skis. Chronics are stiff, so maybe not the best choice.
go for the punx. they are a little softer than chronics, but will still hold their own on jumps and slay rails. plus i have heard that their edges are crazy durable.

yeah the punx are sick i hear, i would go ar6 but they only have 181 and i think thats too long for me, how soft are the punx like invader soft? or like public enemy soft?
well i guess they sold out of punx so that went down the shitter
idk why but the patent is sounding pretty good
centermounted to ski some park and 95mm under foot to cruise all over the mountain
anyone have thoughts on the patent??
RIP CRJ +Shane
i just feel like disorderlys would be too soft, i want something a little stiffer
anyone know how soft the volkl ledge and the atomic patent are in comparison to the TNK?
4 frnt tnk is sooo sick.
guys are like keys girls are like locks,
if a key opens alot of doors its a master key.
if a lock gets opened buy lots of keys its a shity lock.
ok so i think i have narrowed it down to the 4FRNT TNK and the Atomic Patent, thoughts anyone?
i hear good things about the TNK but some people are saying they have durability issues also i hear the patent is a really soft ski any thoughts on this?
i just rode the patent today and it felt really soft but i am 6 foot 3 230 pounds so a lot of skis feel soft but they were a very fun playful ski. had a god amount of turn radius. i liked that they are symetrical. only problem i can see is washing out on bigger jumps.
i am leaning a little more towards the 4frnt tnk just because i like to support the smaller ski companies more than the bigger corporate ones also the tnk seems like it is going to be the ski that rides most similar the the chronics that i had before
Punx no doubt
spread eagles and daffys
i would go punx but they are sold out so i am leaning towards the TNK
I actually might just wait until the 2010/2011 skis come out because it's not like i can do any skiing right now anyway so i don't know what the big rush was for haha
anyone got any ideas for what ski is going to be sick next year and i should look into??
Dont get 4frnts. They definitely have durability issues. Waiting sounds like a good idea or you could scan rei.com, evogear.com, and backcountry.com for end of the year ski deals which are usually pretty decent.
yeah thats probably what i will end up doing i mean this sucks saying this but i have a couple good months to find some new skis so i will look harder at the end of the summer
