Now I know that this topic has been touched on before, but since I have searched and found limited info on the Head Mad Trix Mojo and Elan Mantis 777 (two candidates) I will start up another thread. I may (fingers crossed) be getting a job in Westchester County, NY, soon and this would mean that I would be able to regularly ski further north than C'ville allowed. Anyway, to get back to the point, I love skiing powder, especially in the trees. My Atomic 9.22s are fun for small powder dumps, but I want a wide (~85mm) tree/powder ski that is not completely useless on the groomers. I am looking in the 170-175cm range, and the Pocket Rocket in 175cm, Mad Trix Mojo in 176cm, and Elan Mantis 777 in 169cm or 177cm are the ones that I am looking at right now. If not for the Atomic binding on the Stomp (I demoed Atomics and just did not like the feel of the bindings) it would be a candidate as well. Due to the fact that the PR and Mojo can be found on Ebay they are emerging as the frontrunners for now. If anyone can comment or shed some light on this topic it would be greatly appreciated - thanks.
