Anyway, I've skiied the 85mm waist chronics for a while over a few weeks of holidays, bought them to be an all mountain ski and begin to venture into the park, which in all honesty, I haven't really done.
Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
Have a look at the Salomon Rocker 122 and Rocker 115. The 115 may suit your needs better. It has an early rise tail instead of rocker, so unless you plan on doing 5's into pow you will be ok with the early rise. The 115 is also stiffer in teh tail which means it carves and handles teh crud much better then the 122. Size wise I would prob go forthe 188 at your size, although if your not too agrerssive you could get away with the 178.
The Rocker 122 in comparsion is much more plafull, as it has a softer flex and more rocker in teh tail. Its more of a jib pow ski, whereas the 115 is more of a charger. I have been on the 122 for the last two seasons and I love them. Super playfull but can still handle the groomers when they need too.
Brighmas should have both in stock by now, so if you can get to a fridge shop you should be able to demo them, and see what works better for you.
Have a good season in france.
