Lol, yeah I've always rented cos my dad's good friend owned the rental shop, so we got rentals for pretty much free, and ended up being cheaper than buying a pair for 1 or 2 seasons. So i was lucky enough to pick up a park or pow pair in the morning depending on what I was gonna do in the day (wasn't actually that great, cos its mainly a racing and beginner shop, so only dynastar, couple of rossignols and scotts).
Now that i'm not gonna grow much anymore, i'm looking into all mountain, with a nice flex for butters(not as much as al dente). Won't go smaller than 98 underfoot. I know most of you haven't rode the next season skis yet, but i need a bit of help as I might be missing the perfect ski for me, just cos I haven't heard about it. I was looking into the alpha x, (I like how its a race base) or the arv. I heard some good things about faction, but i'm sure head, line, atomic and the rest have some dope buttery all mountain too... Any good feedback, advice would be real nice! (budget, bindings, graphics don't matter for now)
ill just leave this here too for you pervs
