Whats your take on the new rossi b3's (2006). How do they do on groomers, powder crud, and bumps. How much different do they ski than pocket rockets?

You're gonna like the setup with the Axial binding. Have fun.

Bumps, I choose not to comment as I do not spend much time in the bumps. I am 180lbs 5'7" and ski the 176cm mounted w/fritschi freerides. I also have the PR in a 175. It is a totaly different ski, fun on soft snow and powder but not that much fun or confidence inspiring on anything else, I use them when I want to ski a wide ski but think I have a really good chance of damaging them.
