What ski for someone 6'3?
I'm 6'3, 170 with all equipment on and i ski about 75% jumps and 25% rails. outside the parks i go on groomers and bumps. So I need a stiffer ski and i was wondering if anyone has any good suggestions and even next years skis. i fucking grew over last summer and i was on 169 K2 disorderly's. now they are way to small and i only skied a couple times this year due to surgery so i guess they got the job done. What would be a good ski for next year? oh and I'm not really into the rocker +k for help!
Anything around 185cm will get the job done. Shop around and see what you can get for a decent price.
I'm about your size, I have been on some 181 Armada AR6s for park until I tore all the edge out. I loved them, would recommend those for sure. But, seeing as they aren't made any more, get some AR7s. Don't know the flex of those though.
You can also look into something like the Line Stepups?
Thanks for the posts! does anyone know much about the rossi s4 or the new scratch's coming out next year?
^181 S4's would be perfect, great for jumps, so stable, light, durable, rip all over the mountain. PM me or no_dub if you have any specific questions. They are such amazing skis, theres a reason that more pipe medals have been won on in and its previous models than any other skis.
Great to know thanks! Will next years scratch's be the same ski with different graphic?
08-10 s4's = 2011 Scratches = 2011 Kev/Xav Pro Model
same skis, just different graphics. Just find a pair of this or a previous years s4's, you'll save a bunch of cash cus its year end sales right now.
Sounds good thanks for the help man!
179 K2 recoil? with k2's measurements, it would measure out to about 183, and it is a pretty stiff ski.
181 filthy rich? it is supposed to be a good ski, pretty stiff for a park ski.
their both rockered and he wants a full cambered ski. 185 walls and 181 s4's are your best options. AR7's are not very stiff, and their pretty soft/wobly torsionall.
my bad. i didnt notice that you didnt want rocker. in that case, the wall sounds like a pretty good option
S4s aren't that stiff. Rossi guy just wants you to buy his skis.
Look at Dynastar Spins (I think they changed the names again though, it's the 88mm waist one). They're stiffer than most, come in a 185 and low profile tip & tail means the running length is way long.
yup not stiff at all, basically a wet noodle.
are you fucking kidding me?
You have to be kidding me. S4's are so stiff, make ar7's/chronics/ect. feel like lizzies. And I'm recommending s4's cus that the kinda ski he's looking for, OBV's I wouldn't recommend them to someone who wants a super buttery ski to jib with.
I'm a bit taller and ski surface green lifes. I love the things. I can ski just about everything with them and I like them for park. I really like the little bit of extra width for sliding boxes and rails but they're not too wide. They are in fact super stiff. The width of the nose is pretty nice when it comes to skiing powder. They're not my first choice for pow skis by any means but if you do get into it the nose just floats on top. These things are light too. Super easy to throw around but they're sturdy (or still seem that way after a full season on them now).
Sorry to offend you, I owned two pairs of 181 S4s myself and really wouldn't call them stiff. Super nice skis, but not stiff. Not soft, just a nice mid-flex.
This. Im 6 2 and i ride these. They kill jumps but are a little heavy on rails. Once you get used to them they can go anywhere pretty well. I really like them when im jumping though, and they are pretty durable, the double edge really helps
