AirFopsThank for your answer my man. Great stuff. Yeah I get what you mean with the crud. I'm not looking for a crud killer. I usually just kill speed where I can and then jump my way through the patches.
Would be dope if you could give some more of your experience with the 190 length (So torn lol)
- Like I really like a nimble ski when I skii trees and moguls. Don't want to feel like my tail gets stuck when I want to pivot for the next turn. However since the SFB har so short turn radius I feel like that will compensate for that with 190 cm. Besides because of the sphere form there shouldn't be any "hooky" feel?
- I also like to quick get a 360 or 540 out in small jumps and long skis tend to feel like they drag in the air. Because of the big shovel I feel like that would also add to that draggy feel. How did this feel for you? Like the spin-weight on the 190 cm?
- How were they to butter with? Manual/presses? (Shouldn't be so easy to do a downhill straight manual because of the sphere form lol, but getting a quick butter 3 around should be great)
The 184 is def gonna ski easier and release tails easier but there’s so much rocker , it’s basically center mount so not much pressure on tips or tails they are so easy to release , pivot real fast
do not hook at all , and I’m new to pow so if your advanced or better you’ll find them real easy
Spinning , at 190 with those tips it’s a lotta ski , for me anyway , I feel like I’m spinning in slo mo compared to my other skis , and takes more effort , if I’m backseat at all I’ll manual and butter sideways and wash out, fall
for presses idk I learned to nose/tail butter3 last year , never did a “stalled press” , however last year I was just letting my tips push thru snow during butters there was no bending of the tips , I can bend these during butters , could probably snap em
Straight manual , really fun and surfy don’t seem to wanna slide , I think they wash out on me on spins cause I’m not landing well
if I could do it over , hard to say prob 190s I like a lot of ski in front of me and at 184 -3cm there wouldn’t be much there , I imagine the 184 would feel extremely rapid
