I have had a ton of skis in my past but now that I'm pushing 30, my days of park laps are in my rear view. I still have a pair of moment reno's and a new pair of arvs from last year if I wanna go upside down in the park. I found myself having trouble holding a hard edge and really throwing all my weight ( and confidence ) in to my arv's. I demo'd about 6 pairs of solid all mountain skis last year and found that the new mantra is a savage ski and I had no speed limit with it and was not afraid to get as low as possible. I was dead set on those but then I see the new line sakana ski and hear all the hype on that and wonder if any one has any input on these? I live in new England so we have a ton of hard cold days and just wanted to know about edge hold. People boast about the playfulness of the sakana and its ability to make great turns and the mantra was great but not very playful.
