XtRemE11l toro and blend are a little too narrow, id consider those for a park ski. looking for a little more girth, float in powder, and rocker.
I'm thinking if I go narrower, ill go longer, around 190 or so, if i go fatter, ill go shorter, around 180-85
tomPietrowskiKartels will be great for you. Some people would say they are mid stiff but I find them pretty soft and super playful. They won't be a big charger but that does not sound like what you want. They will rip around though and te large rocker makes them so so playful.
volklpowderglad i found this thread... i'm in the a similar to boat to the OP for different reasons, I have a bunch of stiff sticks for moving fast in big spaces, motherships, katanas, spurs, even some stiffer skinnier skis...
this year i'm looking to add 105-110 mm 184-190 ski, that is not a noodle but not stiff either, but is just a nice smaller radius, easy skiing, fun shape, POPPY and Playful ski, just a ski to take out when you just want to mess around on a softish day or in tighter areas of the mountain, only thing is i don't ski much switch, and certainly don't land switch so super symmetrical isn't huge deal, other than that i just like popping off of stuff, and smushing pillows

a) thoughts on those above
b) any i'm missing -- i'm afraid the kartel is going to be too stiff-not because i don't like stiff skis its just not what I'm going for here, is it?
