Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have had the pleasure of riding the H&B a couple of times, and have yet to find a flaw. One day all of my buddies were complaining of difficult, icy, and chunky conditions, and I had to admit I hadn't even noticed. Is effortless to ski, and doesn't demand any particular style. Hooks up in the hard pack and does a fine job of floating in the soft. Really lets you forget about technique and just have fun skiing. Looking forward to purchasing a pair as a dedicated backcountry rig, as there are no conditions it can't handle.
