Which ones, k2 armada ninthward

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking to get some new skis. Should I get the k2 obsethed, armada ant, or the ninthward nick greener? I just want the best performance in powder, and at high speeds. Not so much for versatility on ice, but for crud, chop, pow, big air.

IMO the greener.

assuming we are talking 189 obseth, 191 ant, and 190 Nick Greener here are my thoughts.

Powder
1.Greener
2.Obseth
3.Ant

High Speed crud

1.Ant
2.Greener
3.Obseth

build quality

1. ant(made by atomic in the same factory that makes thugs,pimps, and snoops)
2. greener(made in an elan race room)
3. Obseth

I like the greener the best and you cna find them cheap in fact there is pair on the net thats used for about 200 bucks now.

So, of the three, the obseth's do not compare to the ants and greeners?

they are nice skis I owned the seths in a 189 and have skied the Obseth in 189 I just feel they are better suited ski for going slower and alittle easier going.

You sound as if you want a ski for going fast in open off trail areas and the greener or the ANT is the answer then not the obseth.

what are your plans just freeskiing, or freesking comps? if its comps must you get a twin tip? because some flat tail tail or semi twin skis are better for your need then.

I am looking to get into some comps, but am normally just freeriding. These skis are more in my price range than some of the skis you are talking about. I suppose now I've narrowed it down to the Greeners or Ants.... Now between these two, opinions?

that's a tough call really. It depends what you want from the ski. Both great skis, both well made, both pretty good for freeriding and comps but you really need to see which one fits you better
