Pros: Excellent mix for groomers and Pow. With the 90 underfoot they did really well in Japan. Also had plenty of fun with a bit of park.
Cons: If it becomes Icey, the edges seem to have real trouble putting in long hand turns.
After having them recommended by a boot fitter (also friend) who spends a fair amount of time overseas, he believed these would be a good mix for Australia, New Zealand and Japan condition. (These all vary a heap)
I have been using them for 2 northern trips to Japan and 1 trip to Hotham in Aus and recently to Queenstown in New Zealand.
It took me a few days to warm to them however after sorting them out, they have been really friendly to use all over the mountain. I enjoy off-piste a lot more then park and these skis have suited me.
Would recommend them to intermediate-advance skiers who have little experience in purchasing new skis.
