Noodle ski 160-166cm used
I'm having a hard time searching for skis. I'm looking for some flexy skis I can butter in the lower 160cm range. I'm 5' 4" and about 120 pounds. I'm looking for skis I might be able to find used at a discount. What skis should I look for NS?
I found 2012 164cm punx that are really fun and just what I was looking for. Not quite a noodle but they are flexy and fun to rip around the park. Good all-around park ski for what I do. I mostly ski groomers, don't get pow at the home mountain, and I spend most nights in the park. They are light like other punx, good pop, good on rails, feel stable in the air, and I think they are pretty playful. never had a true street ski like vishnus but these skis are really fun and I would highly recommend them to someone who is looking for the same features in their skis as me.
If I had to pick something I didn't like about them I would choose flexyness, I was hoping to find something more flexy. Though I can't complain because they are flexy enough for me
yeah I pretty much have nothing bad to say about them
if you are the same weight and height as me, looking for a light ski that is good on jumps, rails, and butter tricks on a groomer park, a used pair of 164 atomic punx is a good choice.
Hope I can help someone.
I'm about the same height and weight as you and i would recommend a longer ski than 160-166. I ride a 174 and I can do the same tricks as you would on a shorter ski. I would recommend looking into the Surface skis. I have the Give'rs and will be ordering the Royales soon because of warranty issues. Go for the new models with the metal tip and tail caps. Hopefully that helps
I’m set with skis right now, also got the 173cm 2014 punx that I also love. They have more swing weight but I found them harder to flex. They felt more stable in the air but just a little more weight than I was looking for. I’ll keep using both thanks for the recommendation on surface skis too. I looked into them but I always buy used skis because I beat up my skis real bad
