These skis are unbelievable, probably the best ski I have skied. I ski at kicking horse and skied them almost everyday of the season, it didnt matter what the conditions were. Obviously they are great in pow, but they are also great in the crud, the groomers and anything else you can throw at em. I also have a pair of 2005 Gotamas and find the JJs more versatile. I'm definitely throwing my naxos on em for this year. I still cant get over how good they are on the groomers, you can really rip and hold and edge on em. They do take a little getting use to, and are a little bit of work in the bumps but that has more to do with the fact they are 115 underfoot. They do lack the power transfer of some other pow skis, but thats understandable since they have the rockered tail. As for length I ski the 185 and i am 5'4" and 135lbs and they are definitely not to long, they are just perfect. In my opinion I would only be looking at 175 if you are smaller than me as they ski a lot shorter than they are.
Finally all I can say is BUY THESE SKIS THEY ARE SICK
