I really wish I'd had a chance to ski this in some fresh powder, but the forecast didn't play in my favor.
The responsiveness of the Rockette115 was surprisingly nice on the edges of the groomers and playful in the small mogul field I tried her in, which gives me the sense that she's begging for powder and will inspire grins when I get a chance to get her out in her desired habitat.
This is a ski worth a second demo and I'm planning on taking her out the first fresh chance I get.
