        Overall

        These are great skis and i would recommend them to anyone.

        Performance

        These are some of the best performing skis i have ever owned. In powder the float like a pow ski should, and they charge very hard. On groomer they ski much better than one might expect because of there camber and regular sidecut underfoot. They do get chattery at high speeds, but nothing that is unmanageable. In the park they sorta work. You could ski on them in the park but i wouldnt recommend it.

        Design

        I love the design. The 5 dimensional side cut allows you to ski fast on groomers, while not being hooky in powder. I also like the amount of early rise in the tips.

        Value

        These skis were well worth their value. I was able to get them off a proform which makes it even better but they would still be well worth their value at full price.

        Fit

        They fit me perfectly! I am 6' and ride the 185's. They ski very short because of there rockered tips and tails.

        Characteristics

        Kind of stiff underfoot while still soft and playful out at the tip.

        Durability

        These skis are still in pretty much perfect condition other than a afew very minor top sheet chips.

        Overall

        Awesome everywhere and everyday. The graphics are horrible; but the way they ski totally makes up for it!

        Performance

        The JJ is fantastic! Although it is such a wide ski (115mm) it still holds beautifully on piste and groomers. As soon as you take it to the sidecountry/backcountry the ski floats wonderfully on powder, wind pack, crusted powder, chopped up stuff and absolutely blasts it!

        They have made me fall back in love with skiing again! Amazing! Very lively and from edge to edge carving on piste they work fantastically! Powder and everything in between is effortless!

        Design

        The 5 point sidecut works well and really helps the ski to charge through the heavier stuff and they don't seem to hook at all.

        The rocker/regular camber also works very well. The rocker aids float extremely well and makers powder an absolute joy; even that crusted, wind packed powder becomes effortless. Really impressive! The camber also aids the carving ability of the JJ really well too.

        The graphics are disgusting. I don't bother knocking the snow off them on the chair. Horrible and brown, and quite weird. But then again who buys skis just due to the graphics?

        Value

        These are an expensive ski; but I feel they were totally worth it. You can ski them everyday, everywhere.

        Fit

        I am 6' and the 185 ski fits me great. Although it is fairly long the actual ski skis like a 135! (i.e it skis short due to the rocker profile)

        Characteristics

        Stiff under foot, slightly more flexible tip/tails

        Durability

        The top sheet is very durable (unfortunately seeing as the graphics are awful)

        The bases are fairly durable and fast; however as they have a race base rocks are not their best friends. Be prepared to get friendly with your ptex candle!
