ok so i snapped my skis sent them in for warrenty and they lost them so i get a 300$ credit for my $180 pair of surfaces. i hear the aftrbangs are a similar shape as my notimes and the layer construction intrests me but i also hear the chronic and anthoms are giod or should i buy new no times wgat are your thoughts ns?
I have ridden chronics for a bit and they were great, I really liked the stiffer more snappy flex, they had great pop and felt they were fun and playful on rails and jibs. I have never ridden Anthems (travelling circus), but I can say that they are softer and symetrical so they will feel more jibby.
my friend has them. They seem durable with no real damage after 1 season. They are jib rocker with early rise in the tip and the tail and seem very buttery but can still handle the groomers really well.
Had a pair of 09/10 disorderlys (old domains) and they were a pretty good ski. Pretty soft, and had a lot of flex. I ended up switching to suspects though. They were just not the ski for me. But they are a pretty good ski in general.
Here's the abangs in a nutshell: they are heavy and slow, but indestructible. They don't snap, they just slowly become more and more rockered and the bases get more and more trashed. I would go with the Domains. Sintered base=speed.
yeah i hit the park rails most of the time i got out and rode urban once this year and thats when they snapped the funy thing was it didnnt snap when i was on the rail it snapped imediatly after i afterbanged for the ladies.
