10/11 ON3P Jeronimo Review.
About me: 14, 6" 155 lbs. Skiing since i could stand. Skied 100+ days a year for the last 4 years. I like to ski fast, turn, slash and air stuff. In the park i like big smooth jumps with long transitions. Taping, jumping and spinning of stuff are all a part of my day.
Skis i have had spent time on (as in more than 2 days): Armada ar7, ar6, alpha 2, ar3. Fischer Addicts, Surface No times, Salomon Suspect(6 days, before they snapped), Line elizabeths, Line Chronics, On3p Caylor, Line Anthems, Line blends.
About the skis: They are pretty light for that kind of ski. Nice medium/stiff flex. Graphics are pretty hip with lots of bright colors in spray paint typed them. I like them. They have thicker edges than any ski i have seen before. The camber and rocker shape look perfect.
Mounted at: -1.5 from center with Sth 14 drivers.
Groomed - Fucking awesome. They carve so nicely and hold and edge better than any park/all mtn ski i have skied on. Their is some chatter at high speeds, but you don't notice it to much. They have no speed limit on groomed if it is not to icy and you can just bomb it. The Turn radius is perfect for what type of ski they are. They can get kinda dull at low speeds, you pretty much end up going straight.
Pow - Pretty good. They did splendidly in the pow i skied them in. Much better than expected. I skied them in around 6-7 inches of semi light pow and they floated fine. Wouldn't want them in much more than that tho.
Bumps - SOO FUN! I love these skis in the bumps. You can just charge it all the way down. Pop from one mogul to the other. The stiff flex keeps you on balance and you can just point it. Pivoting is no problem on these skis.
Crud - All right. The stiff flex and rocker let you plane over it, but Caylors ski crud much better.
Jumps - The best. I cant even explain how fun these are on jumps. They have so much pop that you feel like your skiing on spring loaded skis. Landings are super stable even with the rocker. You don't hit the ground "smack!" but they put you down nice and smoothly unlike my No times. The swing weight is alright. It may be a little much for a weaker skier but i have no problem with it.
Rails - Pretty fun. I skied them on rails for 2 days during the end of the season (before they got a tune up) They can lock on nicely and switch ups aren't a problem. They may be a little heavy for a pure rail ski, but thats not what they are made for anyway.
Durability - My experience with ON3P so far has been BOMBER. I beat the piss out of my skis and these skis look fucking brand new after around 30 days of riding. I have landed on rocks and shit, their are no core shots or deep gouges in the base. Only a few scratches That get filled in with wax anyway. The edges are looking prime and have had no problems with the rocks they have landed on. The ski shape is exactly the same as the day i got them. The flex is a bit softer, not much but a little. Thats to be expected tho.
Spark-notes: My favorit ski ever. I would ride them everyday if the conditions where right for them.
