Dynastar Troubled Youth?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

A friend of mine gave me a pair of Dynastar Troubled Youth skis in good condition. He thought my son might like them. While my son is 27, he only weighs about 130 lbs. He's 5'7" and is somewhere between level 6 and level 7 in ability. He's been on 170 cm Head Carve-X skis for many years with no particular complaints. The Dynastars appear to be 160 cm. He skis mostly on groomers, but doesn't have any trouble with the easier blacks and skis pretty fast on the blues. Do you guys think he might enjoy them? Thanks!

Sidewall or cap? If it's a cap it was a kids ski probably for no more than 100lbs. If its the sidewall version it's the same as the Troublemaker and probably could be okay for his weight. Its a park ski and will be best used there. Also as a twin it's gonna ski more like a 150.
Might be better choices out there.

Thanks, Waxman. They're cap construction. So, I guess they won't really work for him. But the price was right! I guess I'll give them to my brother to keep at his ski house as a guest ski for kids.
