So I'm looking to get another ski to expand my current quiver. I'm 5'8, 140lbs, very strong skier. I like to ski fast and drop stuff generally, and definitely prefer a stiffer ski over a softer one. I currently have 181 ON3P Wrenegades that I love to death; theyre my favorite skis ever. I also have 184 Nordica Zeros, which I like a lot as well.
Im looking for something that is more playful than the Wrens but is stiff enough to drop stuff comfortably and ski fast. I want it to perform better in soft snow and pow than on groomers and hardpack. I want it to have tip and tail early rise and camber underfoot. Also, some tapered tips and tails such as the JJs have would be sick, but not a nescessity. I want to be able to spin on this ski, along with flip and land switch in deeper snow occasionally. I hardly ever ski park, but where I ski, there is a ton of variable conditions, so it needs to be able to handle this decently too.
Ive been looking at: 183 Armada TSTs, 186 Billygoats, 182 4FRNT Turbo 179 Obseths, 182 Surface No Times (I can get Surface ProForm), 179 K2 Domains and Revivals, 185 Armada JJs, 181 ON3P Jeronimo, 181 ON3P Caylor, 182 Armada Alpha 1s, 180 4FRNT CRJs, 181 4FRNT MSPs, and 186 Moment Bibby.
Im currently leaning towards the TST, but my attitude changes everyday.
Any input is appreciated, thanks.
