Moment Jib vs Icelantic Da'nollie
I hate to make another "Which ski thread" but I just have two skis in mind. I live in Utah, and ski park with rails 70% of the time and jumps 30%. I rarely go on a jump larger than 40 ft. I weigh 115 pounds, and am 5 foot 3 being 13 years old. I like a soft, poppy, lightweight ski. I was about to buy the Jib, having it only be 350$ but I saw blister gears review, which made me hesitant to jump on it. after looking at more reviews I discovered the Icelantic Da'nollie. It had a great review, but I have heard good things with the Jib from other people. I would appreciate help! Thanks.
Why cant you pick for yourself? You must know so much about skis because you only post in gear talk telling people which skis are good.
Both skis should perform very similarly, being softer, fully symmetrical, fully cambered, mid 80s waist width, and with relatively durable progressive constructions (think uhmw sidewalls, thicker edges, etc.). I have ridden neither but fondled the jibs and don't agree with the blister description. Blister labels them as heavy and sluggish but when I felt them, they were hands down some of the lightest skis I'd ever felt. Ideally you should go to a shop to see for yourself which ones you like better, but if you can't, I would go with the ones you can get cheaper; both should be great skis. Also, your sig is just wrong FWIW.
Thanks for the help. k+ I will go with the jibs since they are 50 bucks cheaper.
I have jibs and I love em
The jibs are hands down the least durable skis ive ever had. i snapped 2 pairs in about 4 months of skiing
This, go for the icelantics. Their durability is great
Haha okay then Icelantics it is! K+ for all of you.
