I will double post what follows in Equipment etc for advice and here in the hope that somebody has something to offer for sale.

Perhaps I am after something that does not really exist...but here goes:

Good skier, but not yet expert. I can ski pretty much anything (except proper narrow and steep couloirs).

I want an off piste ski that is still competent on piste, it doesn't have to be great...but competent at least.
Turn radius of no more than 20m...that really is the max.

Underfoot? "Enough" but no absolute upper or lower limit.

They key, key criteria is turnability. I want an easy to turn ski, that is MUCH more important to me than a big arching turn charging ski.

To be used in Verbier whenever there is enough snow and for bi-annual Japan trip.

I have an older model Armada JJ, fairly lightly used - 185 cm. While they are very good on piste for 115mm underfoot, I found them too turny. They turn sharply in powder and pivot very intuitively.

They have been mounted once for p14s on the line. Full disclosure - the shop initially screwed the mount by a couple of mm and Spyderjon corrected this with inserts. Performance is not impaired and the issue would be irrelevant if they were remounted.

I'd take an offer.

You are the same height and weight as me, and I have a pair of 2017 bent chetler that have done three day ski so pretty much brand new, I got them direct from atomic, they have got a pair of dynafit beast 14 on them, which I would be happy to either take off or leave on the ski......

A couple of years ago I used an earlier version as a one quiver ski as you can pretty much do everything on them, they are 185cm, radius of 19m and 123 underfoot..... they ski short on the piste due to the camber and very floaty off piste, I am only selling as I lucky enough that don’t really need a one ski does all these days...... there’s even a pair of unused skins that I have but again am happy to keep etc or sell depending on what’s your budget is....

Got a pair of Whitedot Redeemers with only a few days use. 190cm, sidecut radius is >20m, but due to the rocker they pivot on a sixpence and ski much shorter on piste, and are stiff enough to hold a decent edge.
Offpiste they are awesome.

I can't sing their praises enough... Salomon Rockr2 series. Not shifting mine but even at 122mm underfoot it's still my favourite ski. If I could afford to get a pair at 100-110 it would be a single ski quiver for me.
