Salomon Grip vs. Ride DH2.5? Or...
Ok, coming from some stiffish AM decks (Flow Team, Atomic Alibi, now 07/08 Custom). I tried out rocker tech on Ride's Crush, WWW, Sal Drift rocker and found them hella fun but a bit heavy and lifeless ouside of the park. So started looking around at something kinda in-between, thinking of keeping the custom for charging and starting a quiver for a bit more playful larking about. I ride the mountain preferring trees pow and natural hits, lapping through the park if theres nothing fresh; more kickers than rails and nothing huge at that. Want to get better at buttering too.
So, Salomon's Grip has caught my attention and i'm all set to buy one to buddy up with the Custom even though i'm not 100% on this years graphic. However the Ride DH 2.5 looks to me like it could be the slightly more playful REPLACEMENT for said Custom saving cash (cos i can then sell it) and the feeling "i should've brought my other board today".
Or maybe i should just de-tune the tip and tail of what i've got and be done with it?!
A vague one i know but any input's welcome, thanks for reading.
