This are my favorite skis ever. You can rip like hell, they don't know what it means to slow down. Optimal to bust out Super G Carves on a wide open bowl -- for that, they can't be beat, period. Invincible in the powder - you can't bury these tips - meaning you can huck off of anything. Took my skiing to a whole new level.
Way better than anticipated on groomers -- a bit awkward underfoot until you get used to them though. Good in trees. Not my top pick for a day dodging branches though, as they are not particularly agile at lower speeds.
Mounted with a pair of dukes (for side country pursuits). A bit too heavy for me to consider doing serious touring on.
And, as an added bonus, I have never been hit on by as many cute guys on the chair lift... great conversation fodder.
