What ski am I thinking of. Skinnier rocker
I have sort of been out of the ski scene for 2.5 years and going up to the hill i see that there are a TON of new fun shapes out there.
I love my sally rockers but they're not perfect.
1 They weigh a shit ton. Like 2 shit tons. Absurd
2.Theyre a touch shorter than I'd like.
3. I love how much of the ski is rockered but it may be a touch much maybe a slightly lower rise, or maybe not.
4. The tips are too soft, I don't want super stiff but a little less flapage would be nice.
5. Shape is good but its just too fucking fat. There is no need for a ski with that much rocker to be 147-127-137. I'm looking for about 10mm narrower
So NSers this is my question. Is there such a thing as a longer, slightly stiffer, lighter, skinnier salomon rocker?

I think the 2012 may be what your looking for
Or perhaps the rocker/ rocker 2???
Not at all, judging by his description.
sounds like you described the perfect ski, that also coincidentally sounds like the JJ. i love mine
Um I just looked up the 2012, isnt that a park ski?

Check out the rocker, might be a bit more like it
If you want something bigger than the rockers than you might want to look a the Super S7 or apparently next years longer JJ. If I were you I would also look at skis like the Moment Belafonte; great ski and I know a lot of guys use them as a daily driver (although they only come in a 192 at the longest but the camber should make them ski longer than the rockers). 194 Goats could also be a good choice if you want a more all mountain oriented ski.
