Pros: Effortless turning, stability, flexibility, edge hold
Cons: Couldn't find any
I demoed a pair of these at Crystal Mountain yesterday, a typical spring slush day (50 degrees F). I went to the demo day to seek an all mountain "carving" ski, but decided to try the FX because I had heard so much praise, and because the dealer is a bit away from my house. The rep asked about my ski level (43 years old, advanced intermediate, 6 foot, 195 pounds, ski 20-25 days a year) and recommended the 176 cm length. Immediately, I noticed that these skis are full of helium, or so they feel. I had skied a few skis this size (90-100 mm), and was, therefore, shocked when I did not have to muscle them around the first turn. Edge to edge down the early frozen hard pack, and then bombing the slush, later, without abandon, not only did I have the most fun ever in slush, this was the most fun I have ever had on skis. I found some crunchy bumps in the shade, and they shot through them without and notice. These skis feel like 70 under foot. Absolutely amazing.
Looking forward to trying them in "winter conditions" next season.
