I'm moving out west soon and I'm looking for a ski that will complete my quiver for west coast skiing. I'm absent a 105+ ski for powder since selling my Chopsticks and I'm looking for something to fill that gap.
I'm 6'3-6'4, 215, still fairly young and I charge hard and make large turns on edge. I recently bought some Mantras and they served this purpose perfectly, so I was initially considering the Katana as the logical step up for deeper snow. However, I decided I wanted an altogether different feeling ski if I was going to buy a new pair of skis.
I'm looking for something maneuverable in the trees and still good for charging on the powder. I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of charge stability for less work in the trees. I was sort of pointed to these skis by a friend and I'm wondering if anyone has personal experience with them.
Tested Hellbents, Seths, Chopsticks, Czars, and Spoons and I like all of them. Probably looking for something of similar feel to Hellbent but maybe a little stiffer and less flappy.
Edit: Shit, wrong sub-forum. Wasn't watching which forum I was reading before making a thread.
