ok well i do jumps more than rails
I skied the alpha 2s last year, and I liked them alot, however I think they might be too stiff for what you're looking for. I'm a solid 5' 11" 180 and I would say I have really strong legs. I would consider them a stiff ski, the difference between the alph 1 and 2 is that the alpha 2 is much stiffer underfoot. The flex is all in the tips and tail. once you can get up on your tips and tails they flex easily, but you really have to muscle them up there. Of my three friends, that I skied we all liked our skis and they were:
Friend one: 5' 10" 145 skinny as a twig skied 176 invaders and loved them.
Friend 5' 7" 165 same build as me but shorter skied 176 AR6's and loved them, however they felt very soft compared to my Alpha 2's
