Salomon Rocker 2 108 vs Armada JJ

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey.

Intermediate skier
184 cm tall
176 lbs

Wondering between which of the above That would best suit my needs.

Want a nimble ski thats easy to turn in the Woods. It has to be playful as well, and work okay as av backcountry ski. I know neither will be a top notch backcountry ski, and at most a compromise because of the weight.

I'm pretty set on the twin rocker because of the ease in turns and the possibility of landing switch.

Thinking about the rocker 2 in 190 and the jj in either 185 or 195. Other alternatives are greatly appreciated, but since I'm going to be purchasing used equipment there is not a lot of options.

Sorry if I missed something out.

Best regards

^^ where do you ski? 

 

For tight trees you might want to think one size down than the biggest length available... in fact, you just might want to think one size down.

I haven't skied the Rocker 2 but have both the JJ and the TST.  For what you describe (other than the landing switch), the TST is (IMHO) a far better choice than the JJ. You might want look at the Line SFB in years prior to this years as it would also seem to be a good fit.

Norway. Looks kinda like Japan in some ways, just not as much snow. We have some wide open lines as well, and I would normally be skiing mixed conditions. They both have short turning radius though, wouldn't that make them easier to ski in trees?

Thought about the TSTs. I ski twin tips in the park, and being able to land switch is the main reason I'm buying newith skis. That and shorter turning radius. I have a pair of K2 Sidestash as well.

Would the 195 JJ be too long? Leaning towards the 108 in 190.
Can get a good deal on the AK JJs. Half the price.
