2012 Kung Fujas vs. 2012 Line SFB vs. 2012 Line Opus
to have 1 ski...which one do I get?
i say you should go with the 2012 search but the 2012 bar is also a really good choice.
Height? Weight? Type of skiing? Where do you live?
Well I'm gonna go out on a limb here without knowing anything about ya but based on the similarities on the skis. I'm not a big fan of the fujas. Some peeps love em but they jus weren't for me. Now I do own the bacons and the opus. Both are quiver of one skis. The opus isn't marketed as such but it is. The best way to describe it is like last years bacons but better. They'll ski anything. Amazing in pow. Wet dream esque. Very good inbounds and on groomers too. However they are pretty wide for inbounds and although they absolutely slay groomers, they dont have the tightest turn radius. That's not a bad thing at all. Just takes a little work to throw them around on a bumped up groomer. Now the bacons are mind blowing. Not quite as wet dreamy in pow but still better than alot of pow dedicated skis. The bacon shines everywhere though. Easy to throw around and make quick turns. They slay trees. I also lap the park on mine. Super fun everywhere. If I could only have one of the two, it'd be the bacons. The opus is super duper sick if you like a really fat ski but the bacons are just more versitile. Hope that helps.
Umm the Opus actually has a tight 17m side cut...I find mine too turny on groomers sometimes, especially when I'm really hauling ass. But that narrow turning radius is what makes them so surfy and smeary in pow. I think you're thinking of edge-to-edge feel, not radius, obviously the wider ski is less quick. Opus' are best a dedicated powder ski. You'll simply be able to ski slower while still floating on top when it's deep, which to me is the best sensation to have at all times. Bacons are in their own right, however, the ultimate one ski quiver.
Yeah I have zero idea of those opus' and bacons. Lol
Hmm well, geometry and physics points to those characteristics, so you must be out to lunch.
Seriously dude. Stop embarrassing yourself.
Holy shit. You act like they're the best ski ever. You like them, great. That doesn't mean everybody else will too. I personally didn't like them. I prefer a ski with a long turn radius, and the opus was too tight for me. It's all personal opinions, don't say yours is right and everybody else's is wrong
No dude. Do I seriously have to explain? The opus' turning radius is tighter than most pow skis. It wouldn't be as good on groomers as it is if it didn't have a tight turning radius. The bacons turning radius is tighter. You don't even need to look at the specs. Just look at the skis. Waaaay more sidecut on the bacons. Therefore the bacons are easier to throw around. This site is called newschoolers right? Therefore I'd think peeps would want a ski that's easier to throw around and job on. That's why I said bacons over opus. I own both and ski both regularly. The opus since last years SIA. Have you? That's what I thought. Realize you may be talking to someone who knows alot more than their letting on.
YOU ARE A RETARD!!! STATS don't lie!! Seriously, "just look at the skis"?? the stats are the geometry, you can't actually argue that!! Both have a 17m side cut, 17.2m or 17.4m, AS STATED BY LINE, so they will fucking turn the same radius dipshit. Those are fucking facts. Sorry, but if they say they are 17m radius, then that's what they are, regardless of whether your eyes make it "look" like the bacons have more sidecut. Just stop man, you're so goddamn misleading, god help us if you ever work in a ski shop.
