Hi all, I'm having a real hard time deciding between the J skis "Metal" and "Vacation". I currently own Atomic Vantage Theorys and love the speed and stability they have, but have a hard time turning them/ feel they are a bit boring and want a new pair of planks. They are great for ripping down groomers or crud, but tough in the trees and not playful at all. I'm 6'1, athletic, and about 200 lbs without gear. Mainly east coast skiing with a trip or two out west a year.
I want either the vacations or the metals due to their wide underfoot and rocker, but can't decide if the vacations will suffer when ripping down east coast trails (chatter, washing out, etc). I also have concerns that the "Metal" won't be playful enough. Any comments?
