Deciding on a new Ski, looking for a something that butters like no other
I’ve been thinking about Armada’s Edollo or Line’s blend. What do you guys think and any other recommendations? Thanks
Both are solid options, haven't skied the edollos personally but one of my friends love them. Another solid addition to the list would be ON3P magnus. They're a bit on the stiffer side, but with the rocker they will butter right along with the rest of them.
As far as flex goes, blends are softest, next edollos, and last magnus. All depends what kind of style you're after. Good luck deciding boss!
The easiest to butter on is the j skis vacation and next would be the Icelantic nomad 95 and next would be the vishnu wet and then the blend (blend is soft but has hinge point/sucks/hard to butter) edols are not that easy to butter
Stomp it tutorials just did a good video comparing the J Skis vacation and Vishnu wets wide (both good options). He compares the vacation to the blends in softness but with a hinge (as stated above).
Road the new bdogs and they are Uber soft on the nose. Stable in the tail so charging is still an option with them. Super playful
Blends will be easiest to butter but have no pop and they fall apart. Honey Badgers are the same but are more narrow. Candide 2.0s are similar to Blends but less flexy more pop (good thing if you’re good at skiing). E-Dollos are great but stiffer than all thise but this makes them a more balanced ski. You also have the Wets which are my favorite park skis. The rocker makes buttering a dream and they aren’t even that soft which is great since they can still butter.
If I’d say if you want a wider ski that’s good out of the park and good on jumps go E-Dollo but if you want a thinner rail killer that’s very playful, go with Vishnu Wets.
