Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been on these for +200k vert feet this season all over CO in every condition from iced groomers early in the season to 12+ inches of pow pow in the back country and these guys can handle anything you throw at them. I coupled them with the Schizo bindings; having the ability to move back -3 when it dumps makes an indescribable difference.. and conversely, +3 when I'm messing around/park/switch. Truly the one ski quiver killer. They GRIP the snow until my boots hit, and they float like water skis in the powder. Still poppy, yet rigid at high speeds. 5'10" 170lbs - chose 175 because I like having less ski in front of me for better maneuverability in moguls/trees/park... Don't need more speed or stability at high speeds, although I'm sure you sacrifice that extra float on powder days; life is all about trade-offs but these skis are the best I've demoed at mitigating any sort of trade-off (vs. JJ, S7, Bacons, etc.)! These are bada$$ skis.
