Pros: Everything, light weight, pow, groomers, just everything
Cons: Nothing, not a damn thing
I paid $650 for these because it was when Pat was experimenting with different carbon fiber layouts for the clear top sheets. I picked up the less stiff 2 layer model, and I think they mostly do the stiffer 4 layer model now. I have no complaints about the stiffness as a 5'8'' 150 lber. Last year stunk, so I don't have a great review of what these are like in deep pow. I only got 4" of fresh at most last year, but they were awesome in that, and supposedly only get better with more.
In any case, while we were busy not getting any fresh snow, I couldn't stand to look at these sitting in the closet anymore, so I took them out on the groomers of Vail, and they blew my mind. So much so that I only ski my other skis as a back up now. I had some Icelantic Nomad SFT 181's before, and in powder thought they were too grabby at the wide tip in the tight trees in fresh snow, these aren't. These lay down trenches on the groomers just as good as those skis even if they don't have the same amount of pop coming out of a turn, but I think that was related to the tips not being as grabby. They are quicker from side to side, probably due to the weight. I can't wait to get these things in the deep stuff.
They are super light, excessively quick turning for their size, and I just love them for so many reasons. Made in the US of FKNA. The new carbon top sheets are even better looking. I mounted mine with Look Pivot 14's. I only knocked a star off of value regarding the full price, but that's just because I'm cheap and have a hard time dropping $1100 on any pair of skis. If you are going to do it for one pair, though, these would be a great choice.
I also own Icelantic Nomad 181 SFT's
Dynastar Legend 8000's
Rossi GS skis in a 181
