These or Salomon Rocker 2's?? Im getting into big mountain free-ride, and am going to huck some pretty big stuff. I like the looks of both skis, just wondering which would do me better in the gnar. Also I'm a die hard backcountrier, so I want to consider weight also.

For backcountry i would go for Amperage, also these are going to be better at hucking stuff

If weight is your number 1 priority and you're not a huge dude, then the Amps might work for you. I don't really huck things, but I found the Amps to be too soft for me and my camera pack, and not suited for all conditions (i.e. anything but pow and creamy wind buff). The Rocker 2 was much more stable at speed, felt major confidence in the ski over chopped up snow, and it was super playful and fun. A friend described them like skiing on trampolines, which sounded weird, but it made sense after skiing them. Not in a bad way... think super stable, and stupid amounts of playful fun.
