So I got to try the Sick Day 95 (179 cm) in a foot of fresh Sierra cement, and I have to say I hated them -- they were absolutely wrong for my skiing style. I like to have my hips ahead of my feet, but as soon as I did this with the Sick Day it felt like the forebody folded on me, in one case sending me head-over-heels. There's just not enough ski (flex pattern is way too soft) in front of the bindings to support me.

Late to the party on the Head RnR's but I finally got a chance to try mine out late this season in close-to-spring-like conditions. I had a blast on these skis, and spent a good deal of time in bumps that were softening as the day went by. While I am no bump expert by any means, I skied better on these than I have on just about any other ski, so was impressed there. Before things got softer, they seemed to hold a nice edge on the groomed trails, and were relatively unperturbed in the crud.
Candidly, I really don't care what the skis look like if they feel right under my feet! Had a few different people comment on the lifts that they had heard great things about these skis, but hadn't tried them out ... I wonder how many people fall into that category? Really looking forward to spending more time on these next season.
