powpatrolHead kore 105? blackcrows corvus?
Chrisc70Does the 2018 Corvus have metal in it? I believe the 2019 Corvus has titanal and less camber than this year's model.
tfshyeah they re did next years model. Imo get a pair of wren 108s. But then again moments new comander seems so nice with its titanal. If your gonna spend the guap on black crows just cop on3p or moment, they both make killer mid fat directional chargers. If you can find last years wren 108 its a tad bit softer than this coming years, more forgiving.
Chrisc70Commander 108 has been in pole position in my head for a while now, but just wanted to hear some others' thoughts. Partial to Moments and love my Bibbys, so may end up with pair of Commanders in the Fall.
tomPietrowskiYou will love the k2 pinnacle 105. Metal wood and a dam fun ski at speed. Those things rip so hard and just ask to be skied hard
tfshTbh I didn’t like the pinnacles. Thought they weren’t stiff enough or heavy enough to be stable. They don’t have the true 2 layers of titanal in them, instead they use a lighter core and little strips of metal to help with stability, doesn’t work. Correct me if I’m wrong tho. I really don’t like how they ski tho.
tomPietrowskiHey each to their own. Which year did you try though? This seasons were updated with more mass over the edge, 50% more camber and a slightly reduced rocker profile. If you tried this seasons and still found them too soft then maybe you would prefer a new freeride ski that may be coming out, maybe mid season, from k2, but that's all I can tell you for now sorry.
OG.40PS If I had to buy skis for now, I would wait for Line Sakana. They look great.
TheWeazthe classic midfat directional ski is the blizzard cochise, I personaly am not a fan of that ski in particular but it has most of the traits you would want in a directional charging ski, 108 underfoot, high 20s turn radius, pretty stiff and heavy.
wren 108 would be a great option, I wouldn't recomend the sakana or any of the pinnacle series based on weight and turn radius. my little experience on the pinnacle 105 left me putting it in the same catagory as the soul 7, basically a dad ski that performs okay on consistet snow and quite bad on variable conditions.
Chrisc70Now that season is in the rearview I have too much time on my hands and am thinking about next year's quiver. Looking to fill out the hole between my Masterblasters (96mm) and my Bibbys (118mm). I love my Masterblasters on firm, inbounds stuff and am thinking of something similar but wider -- around 108mm -- for bowls and chutes after the pow is gone. The Commander looks damn appealing to me. My preferred style of skiing is directional fall-line skiing, making big turns with a bigger smile. No buttering or jibbing these days. Have been on JSkis Metals and didn't love the rocker profile and also Armada Invictus 108Ti and just didn't love them overall. Fairly lightweight at 155 lbs. Any suggestions appreciated.
sanctuaryfreeWant the same out of a skis and thinking of the Black Crows Corvus, but I'm more like 80kg. Sick Day 104 seems to get a good write up as an a freeride oriented all rounder?
Chrisc70I've done some serious research into this and I love the dimensions and shape of the Corvus. Plus, you can score this year's skis for $495 at link below. You may want to look into the 2019 Corvus which has titanal in it, but they changed the rocker/camber significantly so pay attention to that. Personally, I like the camber and minimal rocker as I have Bibby's for the deep stuff and want theses for firmer conditions on the steeps.
GnarcoKastle BMX 105 with or without metal. I prefered the one without when sking them
