What's good fellas,
So 3 years ago I asked ya'll which planks would suit me best, and I eventually bought the Faction CT 2.0, which was the best decision so far, but now they're starting to look like an abused B-dog edgeless (No joke the edges popped out like morning poop). That said, the follow up question is quite simple. Which skis feel similar to the OG CT 2.0, but are still something different?
I'm a playful yet aggressive skier. I also ride park, predominantly jumps. I like to ride fast and chargey at times, but still like to butter and hit sidehits all around the mountain, and if there's at least decent powder, you won't see me anywhere else. (no pow/bad conditions: 60% park 40% groomers - If the conditions allow it: 100% pow/off piste)
I charged the CT 2.0's quite often to the limit, they felt edge on edge, but at very high speeds they weren't confidence inducing to go faster. But that wasn't a dealbreaker for me, since they had that playful feel, which I absolutely loved, and still felt solid. But they lacked a tiny bit in pop later on.
So the skis I considered were: Line Chronic, K2 Reckoner 102, Line SFB, Faction Prodigy 2.0 or 3.0, new CT 2.0 (but hesitant about it) Armada ARV 96
I'm aware that these are all completely different skis.
With my preferences I think the best solution would be to go with a 2 ski quiver. (groomers/park and pow)
Line Chronic for park/groomers & Prodigy 3.0 or CT 4.0 for deeper days?
I'm completely open for brands or models I didn't mention.
I suck so much at deciding, since I don't want to buy some random shit, so I'm very thankful for every response.
PS: Sorry for the rant
