Line Blend was a good floater in the Euro Pow.
They are pretty heavy built with that thick core, But they (IMO) were pretty stiff, and always kept themselves out at the tips.
I was running standard 60mm Setback, and they were pretty quick on the piste, and they have a good sidecut for the fresh groomed/standard piste.
Although.. if you are late out on a Pow day... and your crossing the tracked-out piste... they are HELLA tricky to keep on their sides, other than that... very floaty, so IMO.. a bit of a winner :)
Rossi S3 in 186. I spent a week on these last spring, hands down the most fun i've had on skis since the OG teneighty dropped. It has tons of tip rocker so obviously its good in powder, but lots of camber under foot, so it holds a great edge on hardpack, tons of pop for park too! I used to ride seth's and they are a close second, but regardless of the conditions the S3 will stoke you!
If you want wider, get the S7 or JJ, neither of these are super fun in the park though
