I swear there are 20 threads made a week about vishnu flex patterns.
They are noodles.
skithemidwestttIts a noodley noodle for sliding.
I actually don't know if I've seen a thread about the plus flex pattern. Everything has been about the wets and wides. Been riding the wet plus 183 and they are still pretty flexible. They ride a lot like the Icelantic da'nollies in my opinion just a tad stiffer. They are stiff enough to where I'm not concerned with washing out but can definitely pop higher than many other skis I've ridden due to still being soft. The description:
A new series for this season, the Plus skis are simply stiffer versions of the skis you already know and love. Available in the Wet 177 and 183 and the Wide 183, the Plus keeps the fun and nimble aspects of our skis and beefs up the core for more stability and better landings on jumps. If the Wet and Wide are both 3/10 stiffness, 10 being the stiffest, the Plus series is a 6/10. If you have always wanted V’s but have hesitated because of softness, these are the skis for you.
It's pretty spot on but I think it can be kind of confusing because they're basing the wet and wide as a 3/10 stiffness where I really think most people would claim them as the softest ski out there so more like a 1 or 2 out of 10 when compared to the rest of the market bringing the Plus to more of a 4 or 5 out of 10. When I saw 6 out of 10 I was a little worried they'd be too stiff but they're softer than the k2 shredditors if that can help with perspective. Perfect middle ground that tilts to being flexible so if you want the best of both worlds I'd say these are what you're looking for.
Ridden them for like 5 or 6 days so far and I'd say they've been a perfect middle ground and is great for their line up. Hopefully they keep making them.
