, but since we're still debating the notion, seems there is a category notion of "playful charger". This from Blister's review of the new 114mm ON3P Jeffrey:
The Jeffrey 114 (shown below) and wider Jeffrey 122 are the descendants of the now-retired ON3P Caylor, which was a playful powder ski with a relatively damp, heavier feel.
ON3P says the Jeffrey is designed “for the freeride-minded skier who wants his soft snow skis to have a backbone, who understands that stability is an ally, and can’t worry about their skis failing along the way.”
(That description makes us giddy.)
The Jeffrey 114′s weight (~2,380 grams per ski in the 186cm length) and full bamboo core certainly suggest that it, like the Caylor, could be a strong contender in the “playful charger” category of all-mountain / powder skis (ON3P calls the Jeffrey 114 “a perfect everyday ski for the West Coast.”)
It's an intriguing question because I think plenty of people sit squarely in the "playful" category without wanting to give up stability and would like to hear more about some options in this class, rather than coming at it from the other direction. Or maybe it's just me
