Moment Deathwish 112 vs K2 Reckoner 112
I have been comparing both the Deathwish 112 and the Reckoner 112 and I am torn between the two. I currently ride a pair of ON3P Magnus 102's which are center mounted and I am looking to add more of a freeride/powder ski to my quiver. I have narrowed my search down to these 2 and I am wondering which to go with, I want something different enough from my ON3P's but still able to tackle jumps, tricks, and some switch riding. I am intrigued by Moment's triple camber profile and their durability but I have heard a lot of good things about the Reckoner 112 and I can find them for a better price. Can anyone give their insight if they have ridden either ski or know any key differences? Thanks.
Haven't ridden either ski, but I can tell you the deathwish will be way more durable
The Reckoner 112 is the first ski I've been on in ages that I'd be fine skiing every day instead of the Deathwish (my favorite ski of all time). It's the closest thing a mainstream brand has made, and it's really, really good.
So I don't think you're going wrong with either ski. The Deathwish is a little easier to swivel/pivot in tight spaces and in bad snow, that's why I'll continue to ski it for the foreseeable future. But I'd weigh cost vs. how much you care about skis being made in the US, and purchase either confident in the knowledge that they're both sick skis.
Sounds good I have heard some questionable things about the reckoners durability and I am wondering if that warrants the additional 300 bucks for the moments considering I can find the reckoners on sale or if they have held up well for you

Haven't skied the Reckoner, but I cant tell you with 100% certitude you will be psyched af on the DW.
I have the reckoner 112s and if you're looking for something to really noodle around in powder that stays reasonably composed when things get hairy its a good ski. I do find that it's a lot of work in chop, and it's definitely not my preferred ski if conditions arent great but if you have a narrower ski and you're looking for something that's a lot of fun I'd say go for the reckoners
