DUKESFull sidewall construction compared to mass-produced crap-wall. Full sidewall wins almost every time when it comes to durability. The blends can be fun but they have major delamination issues underfoot and in the flex points of the ski.
CeleryWets, they are similar in flex but they are more rockered. They are also narrower than blends, but if you wanted a wider skis you could go with the sides. They're mainly better because of their durability and price compared to Blends.
Skiblade420I’m riding blends currently and they do ok on 30 foot jumps but I’ve beat the crap out of them. Will wets be a little more stable than my blends or worse due to rocker? Anyone know?
