Hey, I am 16 and 6'4, about 150 pounds so needless to say Im pretty lean. I have been skiing for about 8 years and am looking to get a powder ski that I can go have fun on with my friends. My local Mountain is Mt. Bachelor and I was hoping use it as a powder ski as well as hit some backcountry jumps and have fun. I went to my local ski shop and went in having in mind that the JJ 185 were a good choice for me. However the guys at the store had some worry that the 185's might be too small and recomended the AK JJ for the added length. However the AK JJ is a completly different ski with its much stiffer flex. The guy also had me looking at the Magic J in a 190 cm length. The reason I am worried about going with the AK JJ is because I still want to be able to do jumps and spin. Anyone who has ridden any of these skiis or has insight on the Magic J(it is new and very few reviews are out) feel free to comment. I also have a pair atomic panics so this would not be the only ski in my quiver.
