hi guys, i need some advice on skis. i want a designated park ski, not an all mountain twin tip or anything like that. i ski in the new england. im a level 3+ skier (used to race, now volunteer with ski patrol). im looking at mostly skis at outlets for cheaper because ill be honest, im still not good enough to pay 600 for this years skis. i just dont need it, not to mention im paying for them myself. ideally something under 300 would be nice, but ill push 400. im going to probably put new bindings on them so i have to pay for those too.
on evo, ive looked at the 2012 k2 press and recoils, 2011 and 2012 line step ups, 2012 chronics, 2012 blends, 2012 icelantic da'nollies (pricey!) and volkl bridge and walls (also pricey!)
other info: i'm 5'7", weigh about 130 (light!) and im 16 years old. looking for something moderately stiff so if i want to go on a regular run
basically, im looking for peoples opinions on these skis, and comparisons if you've skied more than one! are they poppy, buttery, stiff, soft, light, heavy, how they ride forward/backwards, etc.
+k for legit responses
