Dynastar Twin Tips

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, been lurking around the forums for awhile. Finally need to ask a question. Does anyone know the differences between these two skies, the "Nothing But Troubles" and the "Trouble Makers?" They're both pretty much all-mountain twin tips. Maybe a little more geared towards the park I think. But so far the only difference I can notice is the price. The Nothing but Troubles are much cheaper. I'd like to know why. Has anyone skied either pair? Do they suck comparably?

The Nothin But Trouble is a "price point" ski. Same shape as the Trouble but softer flexing, not quite as tough a ski. They both use wood cores but the Trouble Maker is snappier and more lively

Nothing But Trouble is actually 3mm narrower at 78mm and has inherited the dimensions of the old Trouble Maker of 3 seasons ago or more. The Trouble Maker grew to 81mm, almost filling the boots of the old Big Trouble, while the Big Trouble went even wider to 92mm. In fact the impression I have is that the NBT *IS* the old Trouble Maker, and they made the Trouble Maker wider and beefier.

You are correct of the NBT and TM widths for this year. Previous year models were the same widths. The 81mm TM replaces nothing and is just following the trend of wider skis. The BT (first release in 06) was and still is 92mm. The NBT is a different wood than the TM

Okay, my bad I was thinking that the first BT was the same dimension as the Crichton Pro, which was 82mm if I remember rightly. Wider than a regular TM anyway. Then the TM grew 3mm.
