Sorry to have to do this, I know sooooo many of these kind of threads are around but I really need some help. I live in AUS and am getting new skis for the upcoming season. I have done heaps of research and my list was between reno jibs, ar7's, Thalls and Walls. I had pretty much made up my mind on getting a pair of moment reno jibs in a 176, I was looking for a durable poppy playful ski that could still hold up on 40 - 50 foot jumps (but not 2x4's). I was about to buy the renos when I found a deal that I could get a pair of new 2011 rossi s4 jibs with fks 14's for $500.
The problem is that my last skis were 06/07 rossi scraches, and although I loved them, I was looking at trying something different, something abit softer in the tip and tails. But with bindings and shipping the jibs will probably be ~$700.
Just wanting to know your opinions. Do you think the s4 will be playful enough on the jibs and rails? Is the s4 simply just too stiff to butter, mess around on? should I get a more playful ski? or should I stop being a pussy and just buy the s4's?
Sorry for the long and possibly pointless thread (btw im 5'8", 155lbs, advanced skier, 50% jumps 50% rails)
