    Rockered Skis

    I have a question for any skiers out there. Just bought some Faction Royale skis and they are fully rockered twin tip skis. I am geeked to try them, and will be heading out to Colorado in a couple of weeks.

    I will be using them on snow days and in the crud. First twin tip skis so may try to ride switch and land switch from jumps(look for a broken leg post...).

    Any advice form people who have skied this new shape of ski? It's my first new pair in 19 years, and have rented newer skis obviously, but just wondering if anyone has any experience.

    Wear a helmet.

    Looking back on my big skiing days, I can't believe I used to do what I did without wearing a helmet. Of course in those days, unless you were a serious downhill racer, no one even considered helmets.

    At first I thought this said "Rocketed Skis", now I'm disappointed.

    Re: Rockered Skis

    LOL! I have a helmet. It grosses me out to rent Helmets and boots. Lice, and fungus. I have banged my head pretty good in the past. I am not extreme and keep it safe, but on hardpack I have bloodied my nose pretty good in the past.

    I bought my own equipment this year from evo.com's outlet site. Unbelievable how much I paid under retail. I will have paid off my gear in two years by not renting. Plus, it's actual good gear that is not worn the eff out. Really excited as I have new boots as well.
