HI i ski this years johnny 94, bought it this month. Head website show the rocker technology beside the johnny 94. I orginally read they had a mild rocker with a traditional camber for a more natural sking ability on the groomers; when viewing the link they show the rocker technology on the page with the Johnny 94 up to the carlos 125. Whether it's has a slight rocker or not, I couldn't tell you, I just ski them and this is what I find.
There's head's info on the ski. http://www.head.com/ski/ski.php?region=us&tag=big_mountain&id=3040
The rocker isn't noticeable looking at it but I guess does allow the ski to bend up fast when bent. What I find about the ski is yes, I can most deffinitely carve the ski on a soft groomer. I wish I had the photos from last week but then I'd have to count on my internet to upload them and that's rare.
When skiing them, I like them, they're fun they do give me float in powder, they are not as stiff as my IM 77 or my race ski (contact ST) and I found them really twitchy at first, pressure the tip and look out they just cut a turn across in front of me. Didn't expect that from a 19 radius ski. I detuned the tip at the widest portion, maybe 1 inch(where the rocker would be) and they are way less twictchy. I am also much better at feathering them into a turn on groomers and crud. They're good in crud, where I tend to arc them and put them on edge and inspite of the radius i can switch up the turn size and go edge to edge much faster then I would have thought, but a true short raduis dynamic turn on them is proving to be a challenge to me, and I find them sloppy in bumps, but I am still adapting to the slide and pivoting ski instead of edged; also our bumps have not had a lot of snow on them, icy between. I'm 5'5" around 140 and on the 173 to ski, Ski Castle, Canada where we get a lot of snow and alot of deep stuff. I really like them here and they've become more and more my all mountain ski, I'm teaching on them accept the rare time we freeze up and have no fresh snow, when I switch to my ImM 77 for everything.
I really like the ski as an all round western ski, skis very traditional accept what I mentioned and i have a traditional mounting point. I want to try the Jerry now at 105 underfoot with the reverse camber and rocker, I'm not as on top of the powder as some.
