I have been using these the second half of the season here paired up with Dynafit Radicals and Dalbello SHerpa boots. The District is by far one of the most stable and rippable skis I have had the pleasure to slide on. Pow is effortless, go figure with the wider waist and rockered tip. Breaks crust like no body's business and skis everything else in between with ease. The Titanal sheeting in the layup makes for a very snappy response, (i.e. stop paying attention mid turn and they will want to go straight). I am 6'4", 205lbs and am skiing the 188. Good length, very maneuverable in glades or chutes. I just cant say enough good stuff about this ski, certainly worth your money.
Weight is supposedly an issue. FORGET ABOUT IT! They are heavier than some, yes, but what are you expecting for a Titanal reinforced 112 mm waisted snow monster? If you are looking for some feathers, go buy the Black Diamond Carbon Megawatts. But if it you want something you know you can rip as fast as you can, and know it will hang with you and stay beneath your feet...get the Districts!
