2012-2013 Head Oblivion Ski review

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, I just started doing some park and pipe this year, but I also like to ride powder and gromed trails, and I have heard these skis are very good for intermediate/advanced skiers, has anyone tried these, and what did you think of them?  

Thanks,

I tried them last season at Steamboat in about a foot of fresh snow.  I asked for a ski that was very 'smeary' and easy to turn. 

 

Although I didn't like them one bit, I think that describes them pretty well and others may really like them if that's what you are looking for. A forgiving easy to turn ski for the soft stuff. No idea how they would do in the park/pipe since I'm not into that.  I'm quite sure they would suck on hardpack.

If you're buying new, make sure that they're tuned for what you'll use them for. I'm not sure what Walt's were tuned at, but a ski set up for park (or a demo ski that's been used for it a few days) isn't going to have the edges you'd want in an all mountain ski. It can be the difference between a good and bad experience.
