I gave my 2012 Line Blends to my father, and replaced them with a pair of 188 Moment PB&Js and 192 Armada TSTs. The PB&J is going to be my swiss army knife of some sort, that can handle everything rather well and still ski switch/park laps. I hear it is a very fun ski because of the mustache rocker profile, while still being able to handle higher speeds, crud and chop due to the medium-stiff flex (8 on Moments scale, just like the Bibby, which is basically a wider version or the PB&J). I'm thinking you might like the PB&J for what your talking about, giving you really like the Blends (I did too)and would like a similarly playful ski that can handle higher speeds and crud/chop much better. That's exactly the ski I was looking for, and the Pb&J came out on top..
I also went with the 192 TST because I heard they're a very playful big mountain ski, rather than a crazy stable crud-buster. I also hear they ski very short, so the 183 will definitely not be too good in the chop and chunder if its skiing more like a 170cm ski, and I heard the 193 is the way to go if you need to handle some crud. However, it's still rated very highly for steep terrain and deep snow, due to the tip being 95% the size of the JJ, which is 14mm wider underfoot. It's just designed more for having fun bounding of small-medium terrain features and cliffs and pivoting through trees on that steep terrain (perfect for Alta/Jackson/Big Sky), more so than charging huge open lines at 60 mph (more like alaska or South America). Im pretty confident that the 193 TST will still be decent in the crud and chop, although I have a much stiffer, burlier 192 Belafonte if I ever find a place to blast down massive open lines (most likely not the situation for most skiers, especially in the lower 48). I was afraid that the TST would be too soft as well, but after diving into TGR Forums and web reviews, I am pretty confident it has enough burl-factor underfoot to handle what I can put it through. I really bought it for a ski that is extremely playful, while still having a directional profile to take those playful shred sessions to the next level and a little bit faster and a little bit bigger.
Here is StartHaus review of the TST, which really was my deciding factor in purchasing these skis. They pushed me over the edge to buy.
"Strengths: Playful and fully capable in the powder, thanks to big rockered and tapered tips that don’t dive or hook in 3-dimensional snow. Camber underfoot keeps these skis capable on the hardpack, moderate flex for an easy-going feel.
Weaknesses: Softer flex than some in this group gives up a little edge grip on hard snow, big rockered tips make for a shorter running length, so size up.
Who it’s for: The Armada TST is a playful powder oriented big mountain ski that’s best for someone who likes to surf, smear and pop off terrain features rather than straight-lining down the fall line or laying down trenches on the groomers."
If the TST can handle what the late Travis Steeger could put them through (his daily driver for the deep @ Whitewater, BC), and as the all-mountain/Big-MTN ski for the rest of the Armada Pros, im pretty confident they can handle what You or I can throw at them.
