This is an amazing ski for anyone looking to ski it all. Ton of fun in the park, especially rails and mid size jumps. Also great outside of the park, i love to ski moguls, and the ski was perfect. Flex is great, and its pretty light. I highly recommend this ski. Good work rossi
I'm extremely pleased with this ski. I broke a pair of lines last year, and borrowed these from my friend just to finish out the season. I ended up liking them so much i bought them off him, and haven't used a different pair since.
I personally love the the graphic. Its simple, but pretty cool. The colors are great, and you can always see something new in the shapes
For me, this was an amazing value. I bought them from my friend for 50$, and gave him my bindings from my broken lines. He gave them to me fully mounted, so it couldn't have worked out better for me.
I'm 5'8", 130, skiing the 168's. Couldn't be happier with the fit
Perfect flex. Soft enough to be a ton of fun, buttery in the park. Stiff enough to ski at pretty good speeds, all over the mountain.
I'm the third serious skier that has used this pair of skis. They have taken an absolute beating from everything from rocks to rails, you name it. Sure they've sustained a fair amount of damage, but in the end there has been nothing that I couldn't fix. They've held up remarkably well, and I expect to have them for a little while longer.
I love these things and they will continue to be my main ski as I head into the season. I choose these over my ARV's most of the time because I ussually end up missing out on powderdays, and these are probably better for groomers and 2 day old sketch...
These things would be a dream for an east coast, or Cali jibber, looking for some reasonably priced sticks that can go all mountain when they need to, and have no problem doing so, but are a little bit more park oriented in their nature.
These things are pretty much my favorite all around tool.
They are killer in the park, with plenty of flex in the tips to butter. They are pretty indestructable too, as Rossi has done tests where they rolled steamrollers over them and they came out unbroken. Flatter, but unbroken.
The only place these things will find a limit to what they can do is where powder is super deep, and something like Line Prophets is needed. In which case, buy some powdersticks.
The graphics are out of this world cool in my opinion.
Simple, yet insane.
The look of the pre-2006 Rossi Scratches just made me filled with glee. They used silouettes as the graphics, and this made the 2 tone color scheme of them look just so cool. They are really fun to put stickers on too, because you know you arent really covering up much anyway.. lol.
I have an older pair of 2004 BC's that I bought off of craigslist for 20 bucks with a torn out edge. I decided to paint them, since they had such a basic color scheme, and painted a union jack accross the tops of them. They look way clean, now I just need to fix that edge. Still havent gotten around.
The feel of these things as they caress the snow is pretty normal among twins. They feel almost exactly like K2 Public Enemies, and very similar to the older Line Chronics.
They may seem a little bit heavy, but not by enough to where it gets problematic.
This was a straight up steal. Although they were made in Moldova or something ridiculusly poor like that, they come out spectacular and still cheep. I snagged mine for 349 brand new, and they have actually depreciated by 100 bucks in many places. I would snag a pair of these over many of the other twins of the same year that have dropped to a similar price range.
Snag these over the 2005 Salomon 720's, Line 1260's, Candide Labs, K2 Fujitives, and Dynastar Troublemakers.
If you have to make a choice between these and K2 public enemies, choose whatever one is cheeper or looks cooler to you, because they are very similar skis in the way they flex, and ride.
These things have seemingly the perfect flex.
Enough to butter around in the park, but plenty of stiffness to where you can actually shred some pow to a certain extent.
I have skied these things for 2 years now, so about 80 days of shredding have been put down on them. They have withstood pretty much anything exept for a few divots in the Ptex that was an easy fix anyway...
