K2 Domain Vs. Atomic Punx Vs. Line Chronic
Hey guys, im looking to get a new pair of skis after tearing apart my afterbangs. I have heard a lot about these three skis that are in the same price range and I am having trouble deciding which ones to buy. I slam pretty hard on rails, so one of my top priorities is durability. I hit jumps about 20% of the time that I ski, so how the ski performs on jumps is a smaller factor (these jumps are at the most 40 ft) . Durability, like I said, is a top priority. I am looking for the best park ski out of these three choices. The purpose of these new skis are 80% for park and 20% all mountain. Thanks for helping me out!
I know that in the past atomic has had durability issues, but that has supposedly been fixed with this years punx, and next years are supposed to be even better. Correct me if I'm wrong, but K2 owns line and therefore they use the same edge and base materials, so durability should remain the same between the two. I own the Domains and have almost all positives to exclaim with them, they are an amazingly fun jib ski, you can surface swap, and shuffle so easily with the lack of camber, and buttering is just so natural. Of course this makes turning feel much less energetic. The edges do crack, and in my case they are starting to sorta of bend up and warp, but they refuse to tear out. I'd also add the rossignol park lineup (Scratch, Scimitar, etc.) to the mix, my friend recently got a pair of scratches and they've held up really well.
it ain't Saturday, but it don't matter to me... GOT NO JOB!
those are all good skis and you will like whichever one you get. k2s are probably the most durable in my experience, but i had the most fun on punx out of those three

domains, there such a fun ski!
bump for Eric.
Domains are fun as hell, the edge did crack only after 3 days use but that was probably because of my mountains poorly constructed rails and the fact that i weigh 180 haha, but other than that they are holding up really well
im helping you out by saying to ditch the chronics if you dont hit jumps often. those things live for jumps and they are amazing on rails too, but the other two options are better on rails and the Punx are probably the best out of those three choices
My domains are quite durable. Only 10ish edge cracks in just under 2 years on them for a 245 lbs person is pretty good if you ask me.
