Salomon AK Rocket

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I picked up a pair of two year old AK Rockets at the end of last season. They are the yellow ones (grahpics like X-Scream) from about 2 years ago. They are the biggets ski I own and I would like to know how they would compare with the Volkl G41 or Atomic 10.ex. I skied both of these skis several times last year. The 10.ex seemed to have more float in the Pow Pow,while the G-41 seemed to be the better of the two in crud busting and on the groomers. Anyone have any info or skied the AK Rockets. I picked up the Rockets because I couldn't pass up the price, though not sure about them.

Jim,
Do a search for AK Rocket. We had some discussion here in early 2000. I have the same vintage as you (only size 200 cm?) and I like them a lot but not as an everyday ski. Seems to me that there was some comparison on the Rockets and other skis of that ilk.

The ak rocket is a good powder ski, but much softer and less cut than either a G41 or 10 ex, both of which are better all around skiis

Thanks so much for our advice to do a search on AK Rocket. Some really good chat about all the big skis.
