Which is the best out of these skis

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am purchasing a pair of skis from a shop at my ski resort (buying from there because I get a employee discount) and need to decide between the following skis I've narrowed down.  I'm looking for a ski where I can ride switch when teaching at the ski school but also something I can ride down the groomers as well as the fake, slushy, and crummy snow, as well as ice and all the other conditions on the eastern part of the U.S.  I also like to carve a lot.  I will pretty much never be skiing in powder, just skiing at a local 7springs. 

 

Here are the choices

 

Super Natural 92

Sick Day 95

Atomic Panic

Faction Kennedy

Liberty Antogen

 

I will rarely be riding the park, although I do spend a little time in the park and I enjoy doing little jumps on trails and such.  I just really like the idea of twin tips.

Faction Kennedy, best of the bunch.

I always thought of the faction kennedy as more of a park ski,  I will be spending a large chunk of time carving the blacks, I didn't think the faction would hold up so well what do you think?  So far I was leaning toward the atomic panic.

Panic is the one I would have picked for you, given that list of not-exactly-right-for-what-you-say-you-want skis.

Im a guy who likes to ski the whole moutain but does spend a lot of time on blacks and doing jumps on trails as well as going backwards while teaching. I know thats a lot to ask for from one ski but im only 17 and I worked hard to save up for my first pair of real skis, let alone have more than one. My previous skis which were race style skis handled horribly in crud and whenever there was a pile of slush on crappy days part of my ski under my heel would go right through. Those skis only worked well when the conditions were good which has been very few weeks this season. Im tired of getting my ski stuck in piles of fake snow snow because its to skinny at the boot. The panics seem like they would handle well in the eastern ice and crud that I go through pretty often.

My son uses his new Armada AR7 for your kind of skiing and loves them. These were last year's model on discount, you might find some as well. Perhaps not stiff enough for you. We ski in the Poconos mainly so similar conditions.
