Jobe Rogue suitable ski?

Jultsch05Jultsch05 Posts: 7 New Baller
Hi! I’m new to this forum and need your help. I have the chance to buy a 2013 Jobe rogue ski very cheap and almost unused but I don’t know if it is a suitable ski for me. I am mostly freeskiing but want to start skiing in the course more often as well. I would say I’m an intermediate skier and have been skiing for 6 years. Currently I’m on a 90s Ho Turbo (dont laugh) but need something better. Thanks for your help!

    That Jobe is such an old ski with old technology. Do yourself a favor and get something newer. I would suggest a HO Carbon Omni. Its a great ski that will work great both open water and in the course. Plus it will give you plenty of headroom as you progress and improve.

    Ok thanks Garn I have been thinking about a carbon Omni as well but it’s just out of my budget

    @MDB1056 around 500€. I live in Austria so I can’t use Ski it again

    Yes that’s a factor indeed. Would agree with your comment above- a sound review of the Jobe- enjoy it. Definitely a leap ahead of the 90’s HO

    Buy it.... if you have not already. It is a good ski. Sounds like a killer price. Do what keeps you happy and on the water.

    In Australia Jobe ski's wore very popular about 10 years ago but they have really dropped off but the roague was a good ski

    That original Rogue is a fantastic ski. If it's in good condition I would jump on it.

    @Garn The rogue is a all carbon PVC core ski not some old relic.
