Love my kastle MX78's ski them everywhere. Im currently at Alta this week. Skied my MX78's before a 2 1/2 foot dump and loved them, no problem in powder up to 12 inches or so, of course awesome on soft groomed, bumps. BUT...we just got a 2-3 foot dump, so I'm in need of a second set of boards. Demo'd Armada JJ (~ 115 under foot i think), and they are great off piste in the really deep stuff but not the best on soft groomed with my kids. So i was thinking something around 100 under foot or so? Or should I stay with something like the JJ. Ideally I'd have my 78's, JJ's, and something in between but 2 sets of skis the limit. My thoughts are that the JJ's are great for that knee-mid thigh powder day, but for the more common 1-2 foot dump would something around 95-100 under foot give me more use and still be OK on a big dump
This forum is my main source, have read about Kastle FX94, Blizz The One, and some others.
I get out west twice a year for a week each.
