how would this do for a do it all western hemisphere ski. big mountain, powder, pillows, booters, crud, backcountry, and even the oddball groomer and bump run, basically everything except park. i am coming from a jj but i have grown out of them. i am getting an amazing discount on them which is the main reason i am interested. they look amazing but my main concern would be that since there is no tail rocker the ski wouldn't feel even and i wouldnt be able to land(stabley) in powder switch. i am leaning towards the double helix because it is wider but i am not sure. how are these skis? has anyone used them/liked them? would they handle anything thrown at them?
The Dub Helix is my everyday ski in CO. It rips groomers very, very well. It busts chop and crud up. The wide ski really makes it so you can make less turns down crunchy face but still be in control. I don't use them in the park. i love them for an everyday ski. The non-rockered tail is great when you get a bit wild and thrown in the backseat as you have a solid platform to punch back forward and it also prevents doing wheelies. Tons of float. I don't ride switch in pow, so i can't help you there. rocker in the tails is great for being super playful in pow, but i like the non-rockered tail for stability and hauling ass. it's the ski i grab when i don't know what kind of conditions i'll find that day or if i'm going on a trip and only want to bring one pair of skis.
