tru_bouLooking for a wide soft park ski. So far I am considering:
1. Line Blend (100mm)
2.Nordica Soul Rider (97mm)
3.Volkl Bridge (95mm)
4.K2 Shreditor (92 or 102mm)
5.Icelantic DaíNollie (95mm)
6.Revision Talisman (96mm)
7.ON3P Kartel (98mm)
Any suggestions for others or advice? Havenít ridden any of them so any thoughts or comments on them would be sick.
Hey dude, I'm in the same boat as you here, I just rode faction's prodigy for 2 seasons, and I wanna change it up (136-98-126)
But tbh, if you're looking for a playful ski that will still hold on big landings, carve like no other freestyle ski and still hold up to 2 seasons of every type of skiing including 3 or 4 urban sesh, then really do consider faction prodigy, simply the best all mountain ski I've ever owned, they kill it everywhere.
The only reason I'm not buying another pair is that I want a park only
wide ski (which is what you want too apparently?). But if you want something for pow days and smashing crud/hardpack/anything then prodigy ftw.
I almost got K2 shreditor 92 (102 aren't park oriented enough imo) and they're pretty heavy and not that durable.
Friend has the should riders and likes em, but he was very surprised at how unbuttery they were at first, he was expecting a much more playful ski.
Another friend rides DaNollie as his park ski, it's really playful, he loves it on rails/boxes but they're quite unstable as soon as you take medium jumps and even when you start going a little fast.
Don't know much about the other skis you mentioned, but my first choice right now are the kartels 98 (or even the fatter version, I like a FAT ski in the park). I also looked into the talisman, they're damn cheap right now too, but I've heard as much bad things as good things about them so not too sure.
My other option from on3p right now are the Jski allplay; i mean the stoke on them is so big that it's probably worth considering, they seem a little thin for me though.
I also thought about the Bdogs, but the durability isn't their strong point apparently
