dynastar "trouble limited" vs. troublemaker

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have heard great things about the troublemaker for skiing bumps and trees (east coast), so I bought a pair online from evogear.  They arrived today, but they are *not* the troublemaker, but the "trouble limited" which is a different ski.  The only place I can find anything about them is this catalog in japanese! 

(It's the special edition trouble limited in this catalog:  http://www.grkk.co.jp/lange/catalog/PDF/080528_dynastar.pdf )

Here's a photo from that catalog:

Trouble Limited - Not the Troublemaker

So does anyone know what the story is with this ski?  The dimensions are the same as the troublemaker, but it's listed at 2/3 the retail price of the TM in that catalog, and I can't find any info online other than this one japanese catalog.  Is it identical to the troublemaker or is it a different ski?  Does anyone know how differently it will ski?

Thanks in advance.

 Update - I called in to Dynastar in Utah today and spoke to someone in tech support.  These skis are in fact the TROUBLEMAKERs.  
In case anybody was curious ;-)

I can confirm that these are TroubleMakers as well. I have been skiing the ski for the last two years and it is indeed a TroubleMaker. The other graphic had a big set of lips on the top. And they are great in the bumps!!!

Those were the limited edition retro graphics for the 07/08 season - the Big Trouble came in an equivalent white LTD version. Very pretty - especially compared with the rubbish graphics Dynastar have offered on the regular Trouble line the last two seasons.

Apart from the graphics they were identical to the regular models.

I have had the "troublemaker" for 2 years...great in the bumps & extreme skiing...fine for everything else which is boring anyway...you can ski backwards with the wife & kids too........so i just picked up another pair 08/09 & it is now apparently just called the "trouble" & has a pic on the bottom of a girl in lingerie...nice pic if you are single, but i could do without..............just trying to confirm that these are really the same skis & what the best binding for the bumps is????

on other websites like ebay the trouble limited is listed as having a 78mm width while the TMs are listed as 81mm
so is the info on all of these websites inaccurate and if it isnt is the rest of the ski identical to the TM.

also how are these skies compared to the PEs on the corduroy and the packed powder of the east coast.

nvm i cleared the problem up for myself
but i will be buying either the PEs or the TM limiteds
i am 5'9 160 what length should i go?
i am also not used to longer skis as i am just now upgrading from 151 line invaders when last season i was 5'6ish

What size is the new ski that you bought? The one's I have in the shop are Nothing but Trouble and not the TroubleMaker.
