i am 166cm tall and 140 lbs.

 

and i need a powder ski.   

 

While i have never bought one ,never skied that terrain .

 

next season i am going to ski powder and bit mountain terrain .

 

 

i saw the Line9 sports is selling the Head joe 105 balcke-blue at a extremely low price.

 

but the terrain in my resort is full of trees . and the radius of Head Joe is about 35 m? i can ski with a 35m skis in the tree terrain?

 

which one would suit me best?  Head Joe 105 ?  S7?  JJ?

 

i am a intermediate skier .

On of those skis is very different from the others...

 

At your size and level, stick with either the S7 or JJ and you'll be a very happy camper.

The 178 S7, equiv in JJ. Decide if u want smoother (S7) or lighter (JJ).

I'm 155 lbs and like my 180cm Supermojo 105's quite well as a soft snow ski (they are the same ski as Head Joe's).

 

Don't worry about the supposed radius, that is determined by a formula applied to the skis length and sidecut, and only really applies to turns on hard snow.  Turning in soft snow requires NO sidecut, but depends only on how much the ski bends.  And I can bend the Joes just fine, making them quite maneuverable in soft snow for me.  They also behave well as a hard snow ski for those times when you have to ski on a packed run back to a chair lift.

 

But you might enjoy the JJ or S7 more as they have tip rocker, which is really nice in soft snow. (I can't lean forward with the Mojo's in soft snow, but don't mind sitting back a little).  If you don't ski soft snow a lot, I'd save some money and get the Joes.

 

And unless you are an aggressive skier, I'd recommend shorter Joes than 180cm.
