what ski? all mtn, teen skier - Page 3

post #61 of 65
I can't believe I'm arguing over this... Do you, guys, choose your car, bike, shoes, clothes, furniture... without any consideration for how they look ? Or just your skis ? Or are you hypocrits ?


OT : DoubleDiamond223, are those Comis yours ? have you reviewed them ? I can't find anything on Epic about Moment and I'm really interested. (Mostly on the Ruby and the Tahoe, granted)
(yes, I've seen Basom's TGR reviews)

No, you put your daughter on great skis. Regardless of the graphics, even flowers, that makes you an awesome parent, not a gaper.
Hey Phil, I kind of agree with you, would you please drop it already? I did not tell my son what graphics are ok and what are not ok. I listened to his take on things. You might want to re-read post #8 -- "My kid told me he doesn't like the machine-gun graphics." If he wanted the PE, or if it was the ONLY good ski on earth, I'd have bought it already and passed whatever test you guys seem to be posing here.

I couldn't care less if you come back to call me a gaper. My own kids, who are what count here, think I'm doing OK. The younger two have been on Atomic or Fischer race skis since their second season (first was on rentals). And I've gotten a tele setup for one of the younger, who's interested in that now after getting into it at Mad River this winter. My older daughter, who's less aggressive, has been on one of the higher end Dynastar Exclusive women's skis. All in professionally fitted boots.

So if you have issues, please talk to YOUR daddy.

I didn't choose my car by the looks.. or my bike... or my shoes.. or my furniture (I've never bought furniture), or my clothes.... I wear what's comfortable as far as shoes and clothes go, as far as my car goes.. it's practical. It suits my needs. As far as ski equipment goes, looks don't matter. If I could get an awesome set of skis for a good price, but they had the power rangers on them, i'd get them.

As far as the PEs go, though, you have other choices that will work almost as good... so you don't have to get them...

But....

I have always listened to vulgar music... since I can remember... 4th grade at least... Snoop Dogg came at 6th grade... Marilyn Manson at 7th grade... I've always watched violent movies, played vilent video games...

After all that, because I had great parents that made sure I realized that violence/drugs/etc, I have never been in any trouble and will be finishing college in August.

I think that having gums and ammo on skis is not going to change anything. If you have skis with guns on them, you aren't going to turn violent.....

You have a choice, but since you can get PEs for dirt cheap and they are often considered some of the best all mtn skis, I think it'd be silly to refrain from them and pay probably double for a less capable pair of skis just because you think the graphics are bad on them. Like others have said.. Paint 'em or put stickers on them.

No, they aren't mine, one picture was taken from a skier666 TR and another from someone in the quiver thread.

Personally, I'd want to try something like a DP 138 before those, but that's just me. PM skier666 or basom, I guess. I doubt you'll see anything about them on here.

I kind of care about graphics as long as they aren't extremely fugly I don't usually care, but I have to say that the Rubys have amazing ones. So good.
