Hello, my name is Jake and I ski in Summit County (Keystone, Breck, A-Basin). I am an advanced type 3+ skier that skis 20% groomers, 30% steeps/bumps/chunder, 30% pow, and 10% park. I am looking to decrease the groomers and increase the pow (and increase the park but that's not what i'm looking for in this ski).What I'm looking for in this future pair of skis is a ski that performs in powder mostly, then trees, then steeps, then groomers. I like buttering off of rollers and threading through trees. I would like to do more natural pow jibs, general pow skiing, and general all mountain pow. The type of skiing that most inspires me is Eric Pollard. I am 16, 5'9", 140 pounds. I am not sure on my budget yet, however these skis will most definitely be bought on the Evo.com or Backcountry.com outlet.
Why the Sir Francis Bacon is appealing to me:
Early rise/camber profile
Why the SFB is unappealing:
I have heard of issues with diecut bases (not necessarily Line)
Sidewall (or lack of sidewall/cap hybrid)
A little bit more expensive than the Blogs
Why the Blog is appealing:
2 year warranty with Atomic bindings
less expensive than the Bacon's
Why the blog is unappealing:
Heard of excessive chattering problems
The Bacon's would be mounted with FKS 140/Pivot 14's
The blogs would be mounted with Atomic FFG 14 team's
any other suggestions for ~110 waist skis would be appreciated
