Best or worst name for a ski in 2013

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

What was the best and/or worst name for ski this last year?

 

 

My 12 year old son is partial to the Scott "Punisher."

hijack.gif I don't know if it was still made, and made under that name last year, but for any year...

 

Dynastar's "Big Dump" was a really crappy name for a ski.

DPS RPC...as in "resort powder charger" the enhanced version of the RP as in "resort powder".

 

Totally lame imo and misguided as a ski descriptor.

 

The Praxis Great Pacific Octopus is good...weird for a ski but certaining gets one's attention with the graphics to match.

I like the Moment names.

 

I think it's got to be the VJJ if we make the definition ski name most likely to prevent sales. Some might love it, but it seems to create some strong negative reactions as well.

It's too bad that Fischer never came out with a ski called the Price...

Still has to be a 2 year winner...

 

Head Rock N Roll Motorhead ski.  Its really a package deal, you have to look at the graphics in conjunction with the name.  Too bad, supposedly a fantastic ski

Rumor has it they might drop the band, but continue with the singer, Lemmy. Take your pick of next year's topsheet: http://www.google.com/search?q=lemmy+kilmister&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=6GtxUYnpKoXO2AXQl4G4BQ&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1214&bih=538&safe=active

Bushwacker is a great name.  (Are they made in Pennsylvania? biggrin.gif )

 

Afterbang is a pretty bad name.

Kastle wins for most boring ski names.  LX, MX, BMX.  I guess they want to stick with that Mercedes naming thing to justify those crazy prices (not implying they aren't great skis).

Speaking of pricey skis, Stormrider is a pretty good ski name.  smile.gif
