I actually own both of these skis.
09 185 JJ and '10 179 Obsethed
Spent a shitload of days last season on the JJs, and plenty of time on them in NZ over the summer. 75ish days.
OP, the JJs are way more versitile. I would recommed them over the obsethed. I've had them in every condition from slick ice (not fun), to 2+ feet of pow. If you're "doing it right" you can ski these pretty much every day. I would not use these as a park ski, but hitting rails and jumps isnt a problem.
I only put 15 or so days on the obesthed this year. You really need some good snow for these to shine. At the same time a friend at my mountain rode his every day no matter what conditions and he loved them. For me though, not an every day ski.
Demo them, see for yourself
189 Obsethed is a big ski.. 179 rides trees really well. 189 is going to charge.
