Hmmm... I found the TM:EX a little less powder-friendly
than I had hoped.  Perhaps it's the combination of the
stiffness and camber (more on both counts than any of
my previous skis) or it's my technique.  The Kongurs
are about as stiff as the TM:EXs but are nearly flat;
haven't gotten them in powder yet.

Anyone know how stiff the Janaks are?  Is 125-99-117
too wide for backcountry?

While we're at it, opinions on the Fritschi Diamir
Freeride and the Naxo NX21 would also be appreciated.

Thanks much,

-eric
