Height: 5'8" Weight: 140lbs
I live in the upper state of CT and frequently take trips up North to killington, Jay peak, Sugarloaf, Stowe, Bolton Valley as well as the less than occasional trip out west. I'm an aggressive skier who is trying to find the right ski for the right conditions.
I have k2 Iron Maidens 176 and 2015 Line Sir Francis Bacons 184. I love the damp feel and heaviness of the Iron Maidens, they seem to be able to plow through anything and hold up well in the bumps. Obviously, they do not float like the SFB's but they outperform them in every other category and feel much more solid underfoot.
Don't get me wrong, the SFB's are fun and agile but I frequently find myself having to hit the breaks because they feel like they'll washout at high speeds. Just too jittery and turny for my liking.
So I'm looking for a Rocker Camber ski between 108mm to 115mm for Northeast and West skiing that is sturdy and damp like the Iron Maidens. I want a ski that I know I'll PROGRESS on, something that I can straight-line sections and be confident in doing so. A shorter turn radius would be better than a longer one, somewhere between 18-25, nothing larger.
I have narrowed it down to a few skis, any INPUT would greatly be appreciated! If anyone has any more suggestions on other skis post them below.
ON3P Wrenegade 108
The Jeffery would be the softest of all three skis, correct, but it can ski switch and is a full twin. The Wrenegade is damp and directional but supposedly is great for charging and I really want to hear more about the Supernaturals, preferably the 115. I know they have metal in them and hold up well at speeds, not sure if they are directional or a full twin. I'm leaning towards the Wren.
