Titsandwich11judging by the pics and vids ive seen you post, im very surprised to see you ride full center pow sticks and JJs sometimes. is it because you have a big quiver and switch it up depending on the day?
I've got an old pair of AK JJ's (rock skis) and 2014 Rocker 2's as heavy weight touring setups. I've been riding the surface new life for the past 2-3 seasons for everything else (inbounds pow days/sled ski/slack country). I beat them to hell so I just bought the Surface Balance (it's just the 'New Life' re-marketed).
Whenever I'm out on the JJ's or Rocker 2's, I always miss the Surfaces and never the other way around. As long as we're talking powder conditions, there really isn't any terrain they can't handle.
I'm even considering taking my AT binding off the JJ's and putting them on my old New Life's just for the hell of it.
