kstanzSuper biased bc they are all I have really skied on the past 7+ years... but ON3P's are worth the investment for a single quiver ski. Still riding Jeronimos from 2011 or smthin... super durable. I have had shorter seasons the past few years which might be a part of them lasting so long, but I have skied them hard on every type of terrain. The tip randomly delamned once a couple seasons in, and the edge has started ripping out but mostly due to not caring for them properly.
I got a new pair of Jessie 98's (I think) 2 seasons ago for a setup dedicated more to freeskiing, and put touring bindings on them. The graphics are always rad which is step one haha, but I liked that the had a similar build to the J-Mo's. I'm now wishing I just stuck a regular pair of bindings on them because they rip in the park and all-around too.
If you have the $$$, I would snag a pair of Jessie 98's. They'll be stable ripping down groomers, fun in the park, and you'll still be able to float and charge lines in the pow! I did my first freeski comp on them and they stood up. Hope that helps.
KatcherSpeaking of the Jessie 98's, i'm trying to get my hands on some. Think that's the way I want to go. How do they ride generally? I'm typically 60/40 mountain/park and ride mostly Whistler so I need something that can literally ride it all. I'm 5'1 and consider myself a very strong skier. Also having trouble deciding if it will be a good idea to go for the 170's or not.
