Black Crows Camox Birdies

Yes Camox Birdie! But then again, I am in search of a narrower all mountain so maybe the Captis Birdie might be worth a look too??
I was able to demo the Captis but not the Birdie version. The conditions we were skiing were definitely made for the Camox model but the Captis handled them well and then I switched out to the Camox Birdie. I am not sure if it was the wider with or that coupled with the somewhat softer flex, but I preferred the Camox Birdie. I would love to try the Captis Birdie in firm conditions - I expect it handles bumps and trees and softer stuff admirably and with great flair.

BTW, turning radius is 18 on the Camox Birdie - I really like the ski but am still looking for a bit narrower underfoot with a shorter turning radius for bumps/tighter trees.... then I'd be all set.

@Sparky Mammoth now has the camox and the capris birdie in their high end demos at main.
They also have Ripstick W in 94 and 84, as well as the Black Pearl and others. Planning on a demo day with DD but not during the holiday....

4 days on the Camox Birdies this week, super fun.... !

@santacruz skier yes you should. It would be more fun with you and @Sparky. Maybe I just pick the skis for DD LOL.

@lisamamot please try the Ripsticks - I did get on my AT set up yesterday and wow. I can't believe how fun they are on the soft groomers -- they can really carve!!!!

the Camox and the Ripstick will be a tough choice. was thinking about this on drive home last night. Both have good float (I've ridden both in knee deep easy) the real difference is the tail --
Camox twin tip = surfy floaty Ripstick flat tail=easy carve

Yeah that’s great mammoth has the Birdies! Went to demo shop last week to see what they had but they don’t have all the ones on my list. Though I didn’t have the Ripstick on my list. I just feel like I need to demo all at once, same conditions, but I guess that’s just not realistic. Keeping my fingers crossed for Loon this Friday.

@santacruz skier come to mammoth so we can demo together!

Though I know better than to buy skis without demoing, I can’t help but think I missed out on a good deal here... :cry:

Think it was Mammoth as she sent me text asking if they are my skis....
Mine are from 2017 and um purple. Same ski though!
Ah, a bit far for me!

I saw someone with the purple the day I was demoing, actually prefer the topsheet, have had no luck finding any previous year medels for sale though.
