Caps4saleAnyone ski Pettitors? Are they playful like the JJ 2.0s? Only asking cause the Catamarans are replacing them next year and I might be able to get a deal.
I've skied the 179 petitors. Tbh, didn't like them too much. I'm 5'9 about 165 lbs and i could easily flex those skis out. They are soft as hell and don't preform in powder as well as any of the other skis you've listed.
if you are looking at other skis, look at the icelantic nomad 125 (previously known as the gypsy) or the nomad 115.
The nomad 125s are the most fun powder skis I've ever ridden. I own the gypsys from 2013 and the design hasn't changed. These skis rip groomers harder than any fat ski I've ever ridden and I often find myself taking them out even when there isn't fresh snow to be had. They do not have camber underfoot but to me, that's a plus. It makes the ski pivoty and hella surfy which is something that I like to see in a pow ski. It's able to run through tight trees at Mach speeds because of this and when you want to open them up on groomers they will charge just as you want them too.
the nomad 115s are similar in the sense except they have camber underfoot. The 115s will probably be joining my quiver next year even though I have no need for more skis just because I have more fun on icelantics than every other brand I've tried so far.
