ON3P Jeronimos or rossi scimitars
Cant decide which one to get for next season. I ski about 60% park 40% all mountain primarily all in Colorado. heard great things about both but would like to here some more opinions. K+ for help
Out of the two definitely the Jmo. The jmo has more rocker and next years is slightly wider making it even more versatile. the jmo is stiffer than the scimitar and is more responsive. also with on3p they offer a variety of sizes to fit a wide range of skiers and the measure true to their length. When choosing a size definitely go a size up if it is possible since the amount of rocker makes them ride shorter. You will have a better time on the jmos than the scimitars even if the jmos are more expensive
you don't know what you are talking about.
There is no need to size up the jeronimo. The sidecut is more than long enough. Its only when between 2 sizes going for the bigger size is better.
Op how tall are you? Weight?
181 or 186s depending on how hard you ski.
I was given a pair of scimitars and I haven't ridden the jeronimos, but I'd probably recommend them over the rossis. the scimitars are sweet, but they're just kinda damp, not that snappy or responsive, and the fact that they have no camber doesn't help for skiing park.
They're great in choppy snow, but they're just not that great on hardpack, they don't carve all that well cause there's no camber under foot, and the flex/camber is too soft especially when you're going real fast or hitting big jumps where you need a good stiff nose/tail if you land a little off.
181 if you ride a lot of park, 186 if you spend more time riding all mountain. Smaller is easier to spin, but the added length of the 186 is going to be more stable all around.
All times are Eastern (-5)
