Elan Amphibio Waveflex 12 or 14 in bumps?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was hoping to demo both of these skis, but weather got the best of me.  For those who have skied both the Amphibio Waveflex 12 and 14, are either one a good choice for an Eastern frontside ski that can also handle bumps/bumped-up glades?  Appreciate any input.  Thanks.

I have skied both and I feel the 12 is the better bump ski. It has a softer flex so it is much more forgiving. That being said, the 12 is still very stable at high speed and very grippy on ice. The 14 is more stable at ludicrous speed, but tougher to bend in the bumps. I'm a pretty big guy 6 foot 210, and I felt the 12 was more than enough ski.I went with the 12 for Europe which has similar conditions to the east coast generally.
To plug shamlessly for myself, I have a pair for sale in gear swap. I'm selling because I'm moving west and I want a wider carver. They are in great shape.

Thanks for the feedback.  I'm a little more than 2 inches shorter and 45 lbs. lighter than you, so going for a shorter length than you are selling.  I appreciate the input on your experience with the 12.

@Skiingblind - what size are the skis - and where would they be shipped from?
