I got these skis about two weeks ago, and all I can say is "wow". First of all, they look amazing. I thought the graphics were kind of meh online, but in person, they look really sick. As far as actually riding them, the flex is great. They're pretty stiff in the mid-section, but playful on the tips and tails which makes for a smooth but powerful ride. I have mine mounted between freeride and freestyle with Tyrolia Peak 15 bindings (as I do some park and some all mountain). These are incredible all mountain skis (I think they'd be even better had I mounted them at freeride); they carve easily, but hold their own at speed. They're smooth and predictable as can be. Though they're not fully symmetrical, the full twin tip makes riding switch a breeze and they feel really ready to carve forwards and backwards. I haven't been able to try too much park so far (I haven't de-tuned the edges so they're razor sharp and don't slide on rails at all, which I found out the hard way), but they feel like a very solid ride for an intermediate park skier. Mine are a 177cm, and I'm 5'10". These ride a bit short due to the twin tip and they way they're measured, so 177 seems to be the perfect length for me. All around great ski; I have no complaints.

I picked these up for a really low price on backcountry (they're one of the cheapest poles on here), and I couldn't be more happy that I did. I considered composites as well, but now that I have these, I wouldn't switch. They're fairly light and feel extremely solid. They look MUCH cooler in person than they do in these pictures. I'm 5'10", got the 120cm and they're the perfect size. Very pleased with my purchase.
