tomPietrowskiI'm going to disagree a bit here. I think they are an amazing softer snow ski but not the best for harder snow and carving.
iggyskierNot every ski is for everyone. For what it is worth, all 8 people who work for ON3P use the Jeronimo or Kartel 106 as their park & hard day ski, aw well as about 1/3 of our team who use it for park over the Filthy Rich or Prester. Karl Fostvedt's promodel park ski is based upon the Jeronimo, and it's personally been my park/hard snow day ski for 5 years straight now, with my non-hard day ski being a 191cm BG or 191cm Wren, so I know how to drive a ski.
If you are a big skier hits lots of larger jumps, I can see wanting the stability of the Prester over the FR, Jeronimo, or Kartel series. But for most people, we find they are more than stable enough to function as both a park & all mountain ski.
Not to say your opinion is wrong, either, just pointing out that from our experience and that of our customers over the past 5 seasons we have been selling that ski, most find it works great as a park-capable all mountain ski and I very rarely hear people having issues with them being unstable. That said, each skier is different, so we appreciate your feedback.
tomPietrowskiVery interesting. I think I maybe just don't like rocker that much unless it's a pow ski and even then one of my fav pow skis ever was the Ninthward tha which was 187 an full camber.
As I sai though I love the jmo in the soft. The short turn radius and rocker profile work really well in tighter stuff. So I really do like them for that.
But for park and groomers I prefer a more full camber ski or a ski with early rise instead. I like driving the full edge which obviously is not somthing you can do on a ski with a lot of rocker.
And I'm certainly not trying to put anyone off. I just foun it hard to get advice on exactly what I was buying so I wanted to try to help others.
I do want some of your pow skis next season though. If the jmo is that good in the soft stuff I imagine your pow skis are amazing.
