Moment PBJs vs Rossi Scimitars vs your reccomendation
Neeeed some help on a new ski and these two skis (scims and PB&Js) seemed to fit the bill pretty well. I ski a lot of east coast trees and some park.. maybe 60% trees/bc and 40% park but most of the time I ski park it is because that is what my home mountain has to offer, but I go to Gore Mountain as much as I can. I/m also 5'10 and like 145ish. I want some rocker, but I'm not sure if the full rocker of the Rossi's would be too much.
Any help would be awesome.. Thanks!
Google Blister Ski Review- they have incredibly detailed reviews on both skis (not positive about the rossis but definitely the moments). I had similar experiences to theirs with the moments- they're not ideal park skis....they are a bit stiff and unwieldily. Once the edges get dull from rails, they're really washy on jumps because they're so rockered. I would say the rossignols or a similar ski.
I had some scimitars last year and I loved them in the park but hated them outside of the park. I found the rocker to be perfect for rails and jibbin around in the park, I'm not much of a jump guy. Outside of the park they were honestly pretty crappy, they are a very soft ski and I don't see them doing very well at Gore.
pb&j's are pretty stiff to use as a park ski, check out the tahoe, I would much prefer it as an east coast ski
