Hi, I'm looking to buy my first pair of ski's and I saw these. Was wondering if anyone knew or had experience with them, thanks
Atomic drive 5 fiber with Evox 3.9 binds, anyone know about these?

Welcome to Epic. If you don't already have boots that truly fit your feet forget skis until you get boots. Go to the "Ask the Boot Guys" forum and read the wikis about fitting a couple of times and also check the list of fitters to see if one is near you. If there isn't one near you, ask and the odds are good that someone here can recommend a fitter near you. I hate to think how much money I wasted on boots because I was always shopping for closeouts and until just a few years ago didn't know how they were supposed to fit. Sometimes I couldn't even make it through a season in my new boots because they didn't fit right, comfy in the store and excruciating on slopes. I bought a lot of hot skis thinking, wrongly, that my skiing would improve. Once I got boots that actually fit my feet, my skiing improved instantly and rather dramatically, all because I suddenly had precise control of my skis. If your feet hurt, you will not have fun skiing. If you can't control your skis because your boots are too big you also won't have fun skiing. Get boots that really fit and then demo different kinds and brands of skis to decide what you like. Don't confuse demo skis with rental skis, rentals are low end but demos are high end.
