Right now I ride on a pair of 178 anthems and love them. However, I am only 5'7' and I'm gonna buy a shorter jib ski for next year. As of now I am torn between the 171 anthems and the 169 K2 domains. Does anyone have the domains and if so are they flexy because I won't go any stiffer than the anthems because I love to have flexy jibsticks. Also, any idea if the K2's are sintered or extruded bases? Any information on the K2's would be greatly appreciated! And yes I went to a shop and they feel flexy but I want to know if they get softer or feel stiffer once mounted.
