if you want to know about jj's, read my revew in my sig
but i've found bacons and jj's are very similar but jj's are definitely better in pow because of the reverse camber and sidecut in the tips and tails. that being said, the bacons have a much more traditional feel because they don't have funky dimensions. everyone seems to love jj's so if you're up for something a little different you should go for them and you won't regret it in the pow
as for groomers, jj's have a narrower turning radius but they feel a little stranger than bacons, once you get used to them tho they rip
i owned both skis at one point and decided to sell the bacons because i liked the jj's more
also how tall are you? you should probably consider getting 185 jj's, they ski really short
09 185 JJ REVIEW
"People always ask me, 'is it worth it, getting hurt that much?' and the answer is yes, I would do it all over again, have six more season ending injuries in the next 10 years to keep doing what we get to do, there's nothing better than sliding down snow and flying through the air"
