Rossi Scimitar VS Rossi Scratch
Long time troller, first time poster!
I know that these two skis are very different. I own the Sickle 186 and love it! Problem is, it is not a a good park ski because it is so unwieldy. I spend my weekends at Snowbird/Alta, but during the week I do night sessions at Brighton. I am looking for a park ski. The Scimitar is the same design as the Sickle, just smaller. But I do not know if I should go ahead and get the Scratch because it is specifically designed for the park. I love the full rocker / playful feel of my Sickles, so that is why I am considering a smaller version to take into the park.
I like the playfulness of full rocker.
I want a ski that will be 90% park to compliment my Sickle 186s.
Thanks in advance everyone! :D
This is probably more of a question of camber VS rocker for park skiing.
I wont be doing big jumps. Mainly rails, boxes, butters, and smaller jumps (360s and switch stuff)
PS - I am a big Rossi fan.
Well personally I love rockered park skis (I am K2 revivals very similar rocker to the Rossi) and I would also like to point out that parker white and chris logan both ski the scimitar over the scratch.

Hey a-mct 3, thanks for the response!
The rocker skis I have (Sickle) are super fun. So I think the Scimitar will be great.
I had a conversation with No_Dub and he said that he thinks the full rocker would suit my park preferences better. I think he is correct.
