animatorI have a Faction CT 1.0 and a Prodigy 2.0, both are nice. My CT is detuned to shit for the one day a year I wanna try and slide a rail, and my Prodigy is my jump ski. What are you trying to progress? Jump, rails, swerve? That will dictate the kind of ski you want. A good all-round park ski (not all mountain ski, but park ski) is the Dollo. You can butter them, they’re solid on jumps, and nice on rails. If you wanna swerve and play around mostly on rails, check out the Wet or the Magnus 90. Those aren’t as solid on big jumps as other options (people may argue for the Mag but compared to skis like the Poacher, or ARV 96, they’re not quite as stable due to the massive rocker), but they’re fantastic skis to up your rail game. If you want a jump ski, go for the Poacher. It’s stiffer than most so it’s very solid, but you can still butter it with some effort.
keagan.karstensHonestly, stick with the arvs, Ik u want something more durable but as you progress your skiinb will be cleaner and put less damage on the twigs. But if you are really set on getting different skis. Get poachers, they’re like arvs but stiffer stronger and more durable
willyGGWould be insane to see someone doing trip corks in the park with bent chetler 120’s, just saying.
JvassalloSay less, Ill grab em
Carter_MeyerI rode ON3P magnus 90s for 2 years, and I liked them a lot. They got too small and had little edge left, so I bought magnus 102s during the COVID spring sale last year, and they were better. I liked the 102 underfoot and a beefier ski, but the ON3P has lost some of its magic for me. I liked being one of the only people with them, and now they are more common than armadas or volkls by me. I’m planning on selling them and buying Vishnu wides next season because that rocker profile and shape is growing on me and they are also a pretty durable ski for less money. I haven’t ever rode arvs, but they seem like an okay ski but if u want better park stuff maybe look at the Bdog or ON3P Magnus, either size honestly.
anders_awhich ARV's? honestly most ARV's are quite good. 86,96,106,116.
JvassalloI ride 96 rn and I love them, but I’m outgrowing them and I want a more durable ski
anders_aIt's really a good ski, dont expect miracles from other brands/models ;)
JvassalloNot dissing the arv at all, I love them. They’re just getting too short for me and starting to think I might want a more dedicated park ski after spending all season in the park
