Pros: Lively feel, great edge hold , very maneuverable

Cons: None so far..

I purchased these at the end of last season at a deep discount price ( Corbetts of Oakville, great store) 179 cm, Mounted with Marker Griffon Demo bindings, 1 cm behind centre because of chatter I had read on this forum.

I skied them 1 day in Ontario with the mount on the line. Conditions were mixed.  Bit of fresh snow in the am, 3-4cm, scraped down to nothing in the pm. Didnt really feel the love , but I put that down to new ski feelings, and binding position.  My usual Ontario ski is a Volkl Racetiger SC. Narrow pure carver. So it is quite a bit different that the PT89. 

Just got back from a week of skiing at Big White. Moved the bindings back 2cm from centre. What a difference. First day was 8" of fresh. Skied the Cliff bowl for the morning. The snow was a bit wind packed.

After that got tracked out we headed into the trees, where the snow was built up more and much lighter. The skis had no problem negotiating either. Strong ski charging down the face of the Cliff, very nimble turning amongst the trees .

Moved the bindings back another .5cm. I think thats the spot. For me at least.

As the week went on we had a couple more inches but nothing significant. Railing groomers in the morning on fresh corduroy, the skis performed like race carvers. I could go as fast as I wanted ,long turns or short.There is a speed limit to them, but they felt very good approaching that limit.

As things warmed in the afternoons it was trees and bumps. Very turny skis, the skis could go anywhere in all kinds of snow and trees that we found. But also quite stable . They handled the crud like nothing, even at speed.  In the bumps, the soft flex in front soaked it up without getting thrown around. While it seems like there is a lot of tail sticking out, the tapered shape keeps things from grabbing  or hanging up

It was a good time ski, that did everything quite well. It could be a 1 ski quiver for some people. For me, it is the western ski in a 2 ski quiver.

Pros: Edge hold, maneuverability

I got this ski as an upgrade to my 4 or 5-year-old Dynastar Legends.  I used it doing race crew at the 2015 World Cup Championships at Beaver Creek/Vail.  I put it through tough usage on the dye crew where we have to carry 40 to 60 pound packs of dye to mark the race course.   Edge hold was fantastic.  The race course was, as always, a sheet of ice and I had no problem maneuvering across it.   

 

It worked well on the free skiing days I had at Vail and Beaver Creek across a variety of crud, bumps, steeps and cruisers.  I didn't get to try it in powder due to the unusually warm conditions while I was out there.  There were a lot more rocks than normal and I hit a few.  I was expecting core shots but had minimal damage to the ski, easily fixed with Ptex.  Very durable.

 

I was disappointed in the lack of powder because this is 89 cm underfoot, up from the 79 cm ski I usually do powder in.  Hopefully I'll find out this year how it works in the pow.
