I love the Fly Swatters. I have not been very comfortable in powder and usually only went into it on moderate slopes that were wide open and then only 4 to 6 inches deep. Withe my new Fly's, I went looking for steeper and deeper with glade density trees, whooping all the way down. They seem to turn by just thinking about it and they also absorb the bumpy junk at the edge of the groomers. I can't wait for next season when I will have the opportunity to ski them in the variety of what we call Cascade concrete here in Washington State. Some of it is pretty light and fluffy and I am especially looking forward to that. They were also great in the spring slush.
