WhatTheHuckDisclaimer: never rode these skis.
A buddy of mine has these and loves them. However when it gets to be 5 inches or deeper he has trouble staying above the snow / cant keep up to me (riding a 118 waist ski) he is a bigger guy than you, having about 30 pounds on you.
If you're not getting many days they will still be fine, but you won't have as much fun (keeping up speed, buttering on pow, landing big drops etc.) as on your YLE's (i think you have those now ye?) Hope this helps my dude.
ghosthopI think you already know the answer to this.
I ski on a similar shaped ski, a bit more taper in the tip, and am a bit lighter than you and am fine. They don't surf, but I'm not exhausted at the end of the day. Have you ever had a shitty pow day because of your skis?
If you're considering a 106 as your dd, I'm assuming you don't regularly ski where something with more float will be more beneficial to you.
tomPietrowskiI find my jmo's can handle about 6 inches of wetter heavier snow ok. You have to weight back a little but it's only the really deep days I'm finding I want somthing bigger.
Max ax morello was using them in japan this season so that should give an indication of how they handle pow.
.lenconDidn't you mount those skis at center as well?
tomPietrowskiYeah max has his centered and I have mine -2cm
.lenconWhat ski are you currently on? And thanks for the response sir
