Which set of terrain park skis to get?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I just started doing the park this year and I can get about 1-2 meters of straight air. I mostly ski the blue / black runs when not doing the park.

 

I'm thinking about getting the K2 Press skis over Line Chronic ski. Chronic is way more expensive but I don't mind getting them if they fit my needs better. What is your opinion on that? Will I outgrow the k2 press skis fast?
