Thinking of succesors of my JJ's
After putting my JJ 2012 to good use, i feel like i need a faster ski. I like ski fast, with big carves. I dont care about the twin tip part of the JJ, the next ones might as well be directional. Im 6 feet, 165 pounds and ski in the alps. Im looking for about 60% groomer, 40% powder performance
Kastle BMX 105's or 115's is what you are looking for. Don't let the new wave haters say I'm a gaper, Kastle seriously makes the best constructed skis out there but they unfortunately are on the expensive side.
Moment Bibby/Wildcat was my personal JJ successor. Just as playful but 100x more stable. Also incredibly well built, mine have over 100 days and are holding up great.
I went from a jibby twin pow ski (Kastle XX110) to the Fat-ypus D-Sender in the 194 and it keeps a lot of those playful elements like a softish flex and long low rocker lines, while adding a flatter, stompier tail, a somewhat more setback mount (-6.0cm), and a straighter radius (28.3m).

Rossi super 7 RD, only comes in a 190cm but is a badass freeride ski
Moment Wildcat for all-round performance
Rossi Black Ops 118 for maximum stability
Icelantic Nomad 115 for something in between
All of those skis will be more stable than the JJ, still carve really well on groomers, and maintain a playful and loose feel when you want to throw them sideways.
