AlvinbI am looking to buy the Nordica enforcer 88, just wondering what's makes the enforcer so bad at park besides not having a full twintip.
The skis that I have been riding before has been the Nordica badmind 2017. It's a great park ski but nothing more. Therefore I want a more versatile ski and the Nordica enforcer 88 has the best reviews for carving but also having a partial twintip.
A lot of things, most notable of which are: a directional flex with a tail that's notably stiffer than the tip; a directional rocker profile with a very low tail (I wouldn't call it a partial twin, I'd just say it has a tiny bit of tail rocker - see here
for rocker pics); a directional shape with a tip that's much wider than the tail; and a rearward mount point that leaves you with much more ski in front of you than in back. In my opinion, the low tail of the Enforcer 88 is probably the least of your worries — I find its directional design to be much more of the issue in terms of throwing any tricks.
All of that combines to make for a ski that feels very unwieldy / unbalanced in the air (at least mounted on the line) and that does not ski switch well.
With all that said, the E88 is a great ski overall and I have nothing against it in general, it's just definitely not one that I'd recommend for hitting the park. If by "sometimes go in the park" you mean like, a few times a season — or you're only throwing 1's and 3's and not doing many rails — then it could work. But if you're hitting the park very often at all, I think it'd make a lot more sense to go with an all-mountain freestyle ski like the Menace 98 or Rustler 9. Those skis carve really well, aren't quite
as damp or stable as the Enforcer 88, but they're so much better in the air, skiing switch, etc.
So it just comes down to your priorities. If you're primarily looking for a directional all-mountain ski and don't care about playfulness, the Enforcers are great options. But if you do value any sort of playfulness, there are lots of more playful skis that don't give up much in terms of all-mountain and carving performance.
