The Dilemma of the ON3P Jeffreys!
The time has come for me to get some new skis not that the prices have fallen as the season draws to a close. I've just about driven myself insane looking over all the choices! However, I have heard through word of mouth for years that ON3P, which happens to be local with respect to me, is top of the line. While giving the ON3P website a look, I noticed that they went back to the Jeffrey name, as predicted. After a lot of research, Ive decided on the Jeffreys (formerly Kartels). Only problem is I really can't decide on the 96 or 108! My skiing is 75% All mountain 25% Park stuff. Thought about the Magnus, but decided not to get that because its detuned stock which won't be great once out of the park. With the fact that I live here on the west coast, a few have suggested that I go 108 while some will say 96 because of park. Anyone know how the Jeffrey/Kartel 108s are in the park for jumps, rails, etc? Anyways, what would you guys recommend?
If you would like more all mountain capability go 108, if you would like more park oriented go 96

Mostly all-mountain... PNW...108 no question.

I have 98s and 108s. They feel like pretty much the same ski. Obviously the 108s float a little better and feel a tad bit more stable at speed, and the 98s feel a little bit lighter. I'd go for the 108s, when I go to college and can only have one ski they are what I'm bringing. Hope that's helpful
As another wet coast skier who rides pretty much that exact same mix - go 108. Got mine for this season after a ton of research and they’re brilliant.
They float and play in light deeper stuff so naturally, but blast through crud and wet coastal snow like it’s also pow. They like to go fast and are reliably stable landing off natural and manmade airs.
Definitely a bit slower to spin than my other skis but not enough that I actually find it a bother. The stability on landing and on choppy inruns more than makes up for it.
If you’re going to be riding much larger terrain and fresh snow on these I think the 108 is totally your best bet.
I Ski my 108, all day, every day. They do perfect around the mountain and slay the park. Pretty much the only ski that i ride anymore; give them a try, you wont be disappointed.
