ImmasVolkl Kiku, hands down one of the greatest skis I've ever owned.
.Cal.I had JJ's before and honestly feel like they floated a bit better but were chattery on everything else, I still loved them though.
twoodwardoI have been on the VJJ's since they first came out, only like three or four seasons ago but I love them. I started on 165 and am now more fittingly (don't know if that's a word) am on the 175's, I'm 5'7.
I agree that they definitely can be chattery, but I feel confident carving on them and elsewhere on the mountain. I'm not so good in crud with them, but working on it. hah.
But if you like soft, poppy, playful skis these could be a good choice for you. I also have nothing to compare them to powder ski wise. But I love the VJJ's. They are a blast, and go with the 175 if you do. The 165 ski really short!

nikkinopolesLoved the Volkl Kikus but I've thrashed those to pieces. I've since moved on to the 4FRNT CRJs and the Kitten Factory All Mountains. Both are pretty fun skis, but the CRJs were too soft in my opinion for anything but a 2 ft+ pow day so I use my Kitten Factory's for those 'it snowed but not as much as we wanted' kind of days.
Summary: CRJs if you want a softer ski
Kitten Factory if you want light but stiff
