Blister’s Measured Weight per Ski (186cm): 2211 & 2208 grams

The Jeffrey 114 (shown below) and wider Jeffrey 122 are the descendants of the now-retired ON3P Caylor, which was a playful powder ski with a relatively damp, heavier feel.

ON3P says the Jeffrey is designed “for the freeride-minded skier who wants his soft snow skis to have a backbone, who understands that stability is an ally, and can’t worry about their skis failing along the way.”

(That description makes us giddy.)

The Jeffrey 114’s weight (~2210 grams per ski in the 186cm length) and full bamboo core certainly suggest that it, like the Caylor, could be a strong contender in the “playful charger” category of all-mountain / powder skis (ON3P calls the Jeffrey 114 “a perfect everyday ski for the West Coast.”

We are extremely eager to put it up against the likes of the 114mm-underfoot Blizzard Gunsmoke, and the slightly wider Moment Blister Pro.

You can now read our initial review of the ON3P Jeffrey 114.

    Are you guys planning to review the ON3P Wren 112 anytime soon?

    Jonathan, where does this ski fit next to the Billy Goat? Widths are similar.

      Jake, the Jeffrey 114 is much more playful than the Billygoat. Think of the Billygoat as directional and a bit more of a charger (though not a Wrenegade 112). Think of the Jeffrey 114 as an all around playful ski, equally at home hitting pillows, skiing pow in the trees, or in the park.

    Is a full review of these skis planned? I am very curious to see how these compare to the Blister Pro/old Bibby

      Hi Jake,

      Yes, we’re hoping to review the Jeffrey 114, we’re just waiting on ON3P to get us the skis to test. And the Bibby Pro / Blister Pro and Gunsmoke would seem to be the most direct comparisons.

      Best,

      Will
