Dynastar BIG DUMP reviews/information anyone?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
The BD looks like a really great ski despite it's strange name.
What I know:
142-120-132, 38 meter turn radius, tip rocker, 192 cm tip to tail.

What I want to know: any kind of first hand info on how they ski. I have read a few reviews over at TGR but there seem to be prototype models which are way stiffer and more demanding then the production version. Rumors are the production version is less stiff and easier to ski then the 187 XXL which should make it a great powder ski still capable of killing it in the crud for so many guys.
So, has anybody skied'em and what can you say? Any info is highly appreciated.

Thanks

Uhhh..duhhhhh. We know that...

Perhaps i was not clear in my post.  The name makes me focus on the  2nd half of the entendre rather then the first.  In other words its a "shitty" name. Which is a shame b/c it may be a fabulous ski despite the uninspired word play.

I was thinking the same thing.

I think it was named by the French marketing folks. We all know how good they are.

My french sucks but according to google it would sounds pretty awful in french as well. What would they call it there?



"le grande merde" 
"la grosse merde"
"la décharge de gros"
"les selles grand"

or my favorite"

"l'intestin grand mouvement" 

Ironically, the last one is IMHO an essential for a good ski day.


Basically, The marketing sounds as bad as the feel of the mythic rider, i would call them:

"les planks est dead feeling" or via google "les skis se sentent morts"

sorry I can't give any feedback about the ski...but the nane might not be so bad- 1. I think I saw a t-shirt that said "I love big dumps" & 2. We are talking about it.  On the other hand, IIRC, the t-shirt was on a manakin wearing jeans outside a shop and looked as if the local dogs had mistaken it for a fire hydren.
