MinggI fucking hate jumps so I'd take a soft ski any day. My skis are way too stiff for me. My next park ski will be softer so I can play around more!
If youre gonna be hitting jumps and charging though def stiffer skis. Or you can get the best of both worlds with a ski that has a stiff underfoot with a soft tip/tail.
peteythefishWhy not both?
I'm going to hop on the Aldente /Edollo Bandwagon real hard.
Super soft tip which is super fun for buttering and pressing. Rock soild flex under foot to keep you from washing out when landing switch. This also provides a lot of power for all mountian skiing. Medium flex tail that is fully cambered which deliver maximum pop.
98mm underfoot with a 20.5meter turning radius at a 178cm. Turns well, behaves well all round the mountain, and absolutely kills it in the park.
JWillySkeezThe rocker profile on the al dente is great and makes it a very versitle all mountain ski at low speeds. However I would be hard pressed to call that ski rock solid under foot as I personally fount it to be a little unpredictable in icy/hard chop conditions.Although this is coming from the guy who has been on volkl walls and Salomon nfx 's for the past few years so my opinion may be a bit biased.
