    I would highly recommend the Volkl 90Eight. They are much cheaper than the VWerks Mantra, and I have found them to be amazingly versatile.

    I have found the Volkl 90eight to be really versatile, though it may not be as playful as you are looking for. On paper the Mantra V-Werks also could work, but I have no idea how they ski.

    I have mine on the line. They are fantastic for the weight. It is quite a traditional mount and it feels quite balanced to me, so I would personally be quite wary of moving back.
