Nordica Hell and Back Question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I am thinking about buying a pair of hell and back's but want to know if they could do well in an occasional hit in the park.  I would mostly be doing all mountain but I am starting to shift my focus to the park.  If the hell and backs aren't good, what else do you recommend.  

 

Thanks,

 

Jacob

I'm not a park guy, but have the hell & Back.  They have a straight tail, so can't imagine they would be any good for park skiing.

Welcome to EpicSki.  Whether the H&B would be any good for you in the park is partly dependent on what you want to do in the park.  The ski has a flat tail so if you're planning on jumps and landing switch I would think it isn't the right ski.  If you want an all mountain twin tip, you might want to consider the Nordica Soul Rider(98mm), Atomic Ritual(103mm) or Alibi(98mm) or Salomon Shogun 100.

Hey thanks for your reply, I was considering the Volkl Bridges as well, are those nice?

Where are you located?  Are you able to demo skis where you are?

For the park, I would also suggest a twin tip ski. I believe every major brand has a Park&Pipe line.

Hello !

 

What is the best ski for you ?  Atomic Alibi(98mm) or Salomon Shogun 2013 ?

@jamesbond, I would most certainly look at the dynastar 6th Sense Distorter, AR7, or the Volkl bridge

Dynastar 6th sense :
Sidecut 120-87-110
Radius 22

Patin : 87 so little for me
Radius : 22 very long for this measurement

The armada7 is very similar

Volk is a good ski for me but i prefer the shogun and the alibi, i don't ski in park or pipe, just on piste and pow !

I am stubborn and obstinate, for you what is the best ski into shogun and the alibi ?
Thanks for your awnser !

Sorry for my english, but i am french.
