East Coast Ski Help
Im currently riding the on3p jeronimo 2013 (101mm underfoot)
How would the Kartel 98 ski compared to my current ski.
I would say this year i will focus more on groomers and all mountain features rather than the park.
I like to go fast and turn aggressively.
Should I look elsewhere
KF, j skis, Icelantic?
I would maybe look at the Kartel 106 instead of the 98 but you could really do both. The 106 will be more versatile and a little less park able but if you won't spend time in the park you'll be fine.

How would the 106 respond when carving compared to the 101
I used to ski at Whiteface Mt. in New York and the Armada Ar7s never let me down. The skis themselves are super easy to carve and maneuver but they are also super playful and buttery. Since then I have swapped mountains to Mt. Bachelor and bought a pair of Sir Francis Bacons. The Bacons are a bit stiffer and less buttery than the Ar7s but are still an amazing ski. When looking for a ski to go out on the East Coast conditions i would look a the Armada Park and All Mtn collections, you really can't go wrong.
I ski the east coast and just got some ON3P Kartels 98 but I haven't skied them yet. But I also ski about 90% park..
