Flex: Titan 9 vs. Pocket Rocket

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have experience with the Titan 9 and the Pocket Rocket? If so, what is their difference in flex?

Thanks for the help

That's a fairly crazy comparison. Those are 2 very different kinds of skis. The Blizzard is a much stiffer sandwich construction ski - the PR is a wet noodle compared to it.

thanks for getting back to me noodler. I'm trying to understand the difference between the two. I'm looking at buying a set of titan 9s for a great price, but I don't know anything about them. I know the Pocket Rockets are a great ski, but I'm worried they may be a little to soft.
I live in the midwest but will be moving to montana in a month. I have two weeks a year of experience in the cold smoke and ski at a level nine. I'm drifting towards big mountain charging but will need a couple of years to get in shape mentally and physically. I like tree skiing quite a bit and I've heard the Pocket Rockets dominate in the trees. You mentioned these are two different kinds of skis. Could you tell me the difference, because I'm clueless. I'm also looking for the more versatile of the two, for the days I don't bring my X screams along.

Thanks for your time

Why don't you fill us in on what you've skied on in the past, your size, what kind of skiing you like, etc. Then I think we can help you out on your decision.

I've skied on blizzard thermo v20s (with the psychedelic colors on the bottom they rocked!)
salomon equipe jrs.
volkl p11s (broke those in a week)
and salomon X screams

I'm 5'11 175 pounds

I need a pair of powder boards for light snow. I stay in the trees a lot, I'll tuck a chute on occasion, and I'd like to get into big mountain charging as I progress out west.

Could you possibly get that Titan 9 deal for more than one pair? How much can you get them for and where?

Sorry but I can't get the deal anymore, and went with the PRs.
