rob.jpgI have a pair of Kartel 96’s which are the old version of the jeffrey, and I've got to say i absolutely love them. They rip groomers, are pretty light in the air and super responsive, super maneuverable and easy to ski. Ive only been skiing for a few years since i switched from snowboarding and i feel like these have really elevated my skiing. They’re super fun in the trees and great in pow since they have lots of rocker. Fun to ride switch and really fun on rails and in the park. I live in Newfoundland so we have pretty shit conditions the majority of the time (especially this season) but for an east coast guy, i cant suggest them enough they’re incredible
Thats good to hear, yeah im mostly an east coast skier so was a little nervous. Ive been riding 2012 AR7s for the past 9 years and they have been great, still can ski them honestly but just want some type of change to see how I would like a more playful ski.
Also, expect to rip some groomers so good to hear they hold up.
