cobra_commanderI honestly think that the 120+ ski's are overkill, even for a powder ski. They will continue to have a place as a great compliment to a low 100's everyday ski, but as ski companies refine their rocker and shape designs, we will find that the high 110's will be excellent powder skis, with more versatility. Ski width's are going to start to come back down, now that the fat ski craze has reached , and is coming back from its peak. YMMV.
i can see where you're coming from, but i find 120 +/- 2 to be the sweet spot for a pow ski (anything over that is definitely overkill). i rode a pair of hoji's (112 underfoot) on a deep pow day a few weeks ago, and felt significantly held back compared to my caylors because of the differences in float (but this could also because i prefer a stiff ski and the hojis are far from that). i've used my caylors in all conditions and have never had any issues on a 120 ski
