Park ski for those rare frontside days.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

 

Hi guys,
Im looking for a symmetrical twin park ski. Something fairly stiff as im more into jumps than rails. Positive camber, bomber construction/sidewalls, fast base and the ability to get down the frontside *decently* would all be bonuses. Im 192cm, 88kg and love a hell of a lot of snap/pop in my skis. I also hate super soft tails.
 
Looking at Volkl Wall, OM3P Filthy Rich (but i hate the graphic - oh well), Fatypus G-Butter, Icelantic Da Nollie and whatever else you throw my way.

While I haven't skied any of those skis, and I'm definitely not an authority in park skis, I've heard great things about Icelantic DaNollie.

 

Hopefully this bump will help you get some exposure and some answers.

Thanks for the bump, I know epicski isnt really a park oriented forum and tried posting the same thread over at TGR. Judging by the responses over there Im going to assume its an internet jail for stupid people.

haha... its the same over on new schoolers... you get good answers in between everything...

 

i advise looking over there... i use my Kung Fujas for park but thats coming from a racing back ground so the other 2 pairs i own are slalom and GS are skis... 

 

as far as i can see from reviews this year  it would be between - 

 

Dynastar 6th sense distorter

Armada tanner hall

Salomon punisher jib

Take a look at the Nordica Ace of Spades... fits what you are looking for to a T

That Nordica actually looks right up my alley. Bit more information - Im going to be using this ski for a daily driver (but mostly in the park) for the aussie season. Im currently in Revelstoke, BC and none of my *revvy* skis are really suitable back home.

Next winter is going to be even harder if I make if to Chamonix. Im guessing over there you're looking at a 100-110mm ski for most of the terrain and my skis jump from park > 118+mm with no filler. I can only bring 2 skis as well... 

First world problems.

Check this review of the Da'Nollie out, if you haven't read it already: http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/review-2011-2012-icelantic-danollie-180cm

Thanks yeah I read that review a few days ago seems to speak pretty highly of the Danollie. Im tempted to hunt down a pair of hybrid wailer 99s to mount at +2 and use it for a do-everything.
