How would you compare the Black Pearls to the Kastle FX84 (I think that I just read a review of that ski that you posted)? They sound like they might fill a similar role--light, nimble, versatile, not quite as stable as the Kastle MX88 but more "playful'.
The Black Pearls and FX84 would mosdef be overlap in a quiver, however the FX84 is a tad softer with a bit different personality, quite like you describe.
The Black Pearls have rocker tip, are super forgiving, and are a bit more RAWR(much like the Bull graphix)
