Yes - another thread on choosing skis, but I really need help on this :-)
Here's some info:
It's my second season in the park and I have been skiing Suspects for around 30-35 days on rails. They are pretty rounded underfoot with a few edge cracks, so I'm basically looking to buy a new pair of skis, for when my Suspects break, which can happen at any time.
What I'm looking for is a durable ski on rails, which will hold up without the edges ripping out (too early).
I'm 17 years old, 5'10,5" and I weight around 130-135 lbs.
I'm comfortable doing a few swap 2 out variations, surface swaps, switch on, lip on, 270 on and basic stuff like that, and I'm doing 3's 5's, sw 1's and sw 3's on 50-55 ft kickers.
I will be choosing between K2, Armada, Coreupt and Line skis, since the shop I'm buying from only have these brands.
Thanks and K+ to anyone who at least tries to help me out ;-)
Armada ar7's! if your shop carries them. They are going to be great on those fifty foot kickers, and the edge will hold up on a rail. They aren't incredibly playfull, but they are really solid so you can stomp anything
Ar7 is the stiffer than the thall. This will help out on some bigger jumps. Besides that they are essentially the same ski. The Thall and the ar7 are both camber and have ar50 sidewall (sidewall underfoot and cap in the tips and tails). Also they have the same dimensions. They are not symmetrical. The domain is a buttery ski and is symmetrical and has a full sidewall. The jib rocker has early rise in the tips and tail.
What's the difference between a snowboard and a vacuum?
