Pros: Damp, smooth, carve very well, easy to ski, handle crud & ice as well as hardpack. Clean, subtle appearance.
Cons: Asymmetrical feature makes for easy skiing, but if your inside edges get worn, swapping to other foot changes the turning character.
This extremely-organized European testing format concluded that the Amphibio Fusion 78 (non-Ti) was #1 in their all-around category.
Now, after a year of ownership, 30+ skiing days at Gore and West Mtns (eastern hardpack with some ice, some 3" pow, some crud) I agree with that test. These skis are perfect for me (160#, 5'9", advanced, "mature" skier).
They carve great, and if you swap them so that the rockered edge is the inside, they smear like rockered skis. (who knew?) Curious to see what happens when they were swapped so the rockered edges were inside instead of outside, I did it. It wasn't a dramatic difference, but they then preferred to smear rather than carve turns, just like most rockered skis do. So to some degree you get 2 sets of skis for the price of one.
[This added in Dec 2015: in the heavy, warm Spring-like conditions we've had this Dec., swapping to the rockered edges did make them easier to turn in the slop. One day when it had not yet warmed above freezing, I started with the cambered edges inside (the normal setup) then several runs later as it warmed up, swapped to the rockered sides for easier turning in the slop. That was easier to do than walk back to my car and get a set of old rockered skis I own.]
They are damp & smooth, but not as heavy as some stiffer Ti-reinforced skis. Over the past months, I've demoed a dozen other skis in the 75 - 85mm waist width. For me, these are the overall best.
They have been stable at 40mph down big groomers, as well as easy to play around at low speeds, unlike some stiffer skis I've tried which were more like 1 trick ponies.
The Fusion bindings are slick: work well and are well integrated. The sintered base seems to hold its wax well, so the skis are relatively fast through many days of Eastern skiing.
I like their subtle style. Hell, I like their feel, too. After a full year os skiing on them, it still feels like true love....
