Advanced all-mountain skier looking to get into the park. I've done some jumps but nothing crazy. This will be my first twin tipped ski. 5'11'', 175 lbs and don't want to give up any more all-mountain performance than I have to (east coast, so no powder). I've narrowed it down to these two, but can anyone give me a side by side on them? The Recoils have gotten great reviews, and I understand the rocker will make them ski a little shorter. The Extremes are full camber so should be better all-mountain (maybe), but will they suffer in the park?
In short, assuming they're both brand new and both the same price, what are the reasons of buying one over the other?
Also, any advice on length? I'm on 174 Apache Crossfires right now that are true to length. Would 179s in either the Recoil or Extreme be too long?
Other thing to think about it is the Extreme's will have Schizo bindings and the Recoils would not... just a budget thing.
BTW, I also understand that the Extreme's are just the Public Enemy with different graphics.
