The adult version has positive (and some negative) coverage, but my son's looking at a pair of the small-person types. Does anyone have an opinion?
An opinion? You bet. Better still, facts.
The only thing the skis have in common is the name.
The S7 Junior is the Scratch BC Jr from years ago, with an S7 topsheet.
It is an excellent conventionally shaped park and powder ski.
So, where the marketer states, e.g., "Powder Turn Rocker profile consists of 50% low rockered tip and tail and 50% regular camber underfoot," etc., etc., what is meant is "twin-tip"?
I get it. Thanks!
My initial reaction was that they just copied the adult description. But looking at the Rossignol website, it looks like the 2013 S7 Pro Open Junior may actually be a new ski. It lists different dimensions than the Scratch Pro BC Junior (118-90-108, vs 120-90-114). So if you're looking at only this year's model, there may be an actual difference. In which case, ignore what I said.
