I've ridden the JJ at Northstar for the past few days, and I have to say it's pretty fantastic everywhere. Sick on groomers, floats nicely in pow (not quite as well as a dedicated pow ski, but I'm splitting hairs), pretty quick through the trees, and an absolute joy up in the air. The 50/50 cap/sidewall and the early taper (elf shoe) give the ski a really low, concentrated swing weight, so spinning them is like nothing. They're pretty flexible, you can definitely play around with them. Even took them through the park a little bit and had a good time; hit a corrugated down pipe, a barrel tap, some other random small stuff, and they were really fun. Left a little to be desired when the snow got cruddy because of how light they are, but overall very impressive. They hold an edge like a directional-cut park ski, it's insane. I was dying to get on the Bacons but couldn't find any to demo. Overall I think I'm going to try to get my hands on the Bacons because of their added flex (I'm 136 pounds), though I'm worried that off of big shit they're going to wash out. But as far as the JJ goes, you won't be disappointed if that's the direction you decide to go in.
