Neither can they... The strongest maybe a few reps, but wha they have is the technical skill that gets them excellent alignment/structure/stacking to manage the forces involved at high speed.
A lovely ski for sure in a world of lovely skis. Compared to the rest on your list, they would indeed stand out. Now just don't ski an MX 98.
Sign up for a couple of lessons. May of us grew up with and were accomplished skiers on straight skis... yes, I've even skied a VR 17 DH (223). The big 'up' unweighting move isn't necessary on current skis and may in fact be a cause of your issues. I'm sure there's some rotary push off, etc... In the mix as well... Tough to say without video though. About not believing in skis making you better, if you were skiing VR17's and 27's in the day, they were far superior to...
IMHO, I like to see and teach a looser, more dynamic pivoted slip/turn/combo thereof focusing on the release of the old outside foot. Better yet, let's just say, "ski on the inside foot!"

We also need to talk about platform angle, but since LeMaster doesn't know what he's talking about, I won't bother providing a reference.
