KravtZIm on the Surface double time as well. Great all mtn ski. Lacks in the pow for sure. Kartels everyone raves about feel like you cant go wrong with them.
SoAnGI'm 5.7" 165lbs. Been using ON3P Jeffries 106 going on my third year for east coast everything. They absolutely shred, even in the park. Seriously consider them or the Kartels 98/106. They would be my next pair. About the stiffness your worrying about, they are stiff enough to bomb all mountain without worries but have that perfect rocker where its very playful. Skis I've used for comparison: Walls, Anthems, Punx, Filthies and a couple others I can't recall at the moment. Filthies are my next favorite but fell short for me when it came to all mountain fun.
BogsThe new Sir Francis Bacon could also be a good choice, definitely worth considering, at least.
nfsoxThe Bacon's seem iffy to me. I feel like they are more pow than anything and they seem to have mixed reviews, like I could get a better one for a similar price.
masterofnoneBlizzard Regulators are a skinnier version of the Peacemakers and they absolutely rip. Stable as fuck, playful, snappy, all around best ski I've ever skied
stayflyWhere at on the east coast? I am looking at for a do it all ski as well, and am really close to pulling the trigger on the Kartel 98. I ski mainly West Virginia, Seven Springs, and Wisp.
SapperDaddyI would recommend the atomic blog. Literally the ski you are describing. I ride mine in every condition. 110 under foot. Rocker tip and tail camber underfoot. Only down fall is they quit making them. But you can still get them online.
