Just skied these today at the bird, and was really impressed. The conditions tested everything these skis had to offer, and they did not disappoint. Floated with ease, charged through the softpack/crud, and absolutely no chatter at high speed and through bumps - way stable. The added width took some getting used to (I've been a frontside, carving oriented skier in the past), but that's a personal issue. These skis have converted me, and I will be going off-piste much more often because of them. It's possible that I could feel this way after my first run on anything with larger than a 75 mm waist, but somehow I doubt that.
