Hi NS. I'm looking for a ski that has around a 105-115mm waist. I'm looking for a soft-medium flexing ski that is really playful. I'm skiing in Tahoe and I'm looking for a ski that will be used for a few inches and tracked out stuff as well as trees. I'm 5'8 120 pounds, aggressive, and an intermediate-advanced skier. My budget is around $750 without bindings. I've been looking at the JJs, Jeffreys, sir Francis bacons, and deathwishes.
Deathwish are on point and would definitely recommend them. They are fairly soft but at 120 they may not feel as soft to you as they do to me ~180. They definitely perform well in the conditions you have listed and hold up well
Jeffreys and Deathwishes. In tahoe you want that stiffness for when it gets choppy. I don't know how the deathwishes ride, but my experience with jeffreys has been incredible. I've skied them in every condition imaginable in various locations, and they continually exceed expectations.
I got a pair of 175 apostles. So much fun in the trees. Things are so playful but are stable enough to charge through charge. Im 5'4 110 lbs. But also sounds like you might like a shredditor 102 or 112 but don't know much about the skis flex
I would go with the sir Francis beacons for sure. They are the best all round powder ski out there with a 108 underfoot. I can even throw them around in the park. They also made a lot of them last year so they are easy to find cheap. I would mount them -2.
