Anybody have info on these skis? I've searched but can't find any reviews. I want a cheater slalom shape to mount tele. Can get good deals on both of these skis. Most important attributes I am looking for are hard-snow grip and sub 14m turning radius.

Head carving skis, specifically the narrow waisted SL'ish types that you seek info on are not commonly skied by members of the Epic community. That's not a reflection on the skis, much more about what's in vogue today. I could not find info on the iSupersport, so, I'm guessing that you mean the iSupershape SW.
The Supershape SW is Head's detuned full SL ski and has the KERS technology designed to stiffen the ski as it bends. I ski it's predecessor, the original iSupershape and it's a great short radius turner in icy SE Pa. slopes. It has been a very difficult ski to find in the USA.
The X shape is very similar, but, somewhat detuned version of the iSupershape. It would be a great short radius turner, but, if your aggressive the clear winner would be the full iSupershape. The X shape usually comes with bindings and is a pretty good value purchase for the bucks.
Sorry, but, I've never spent time on either as Head seems to have disappeared from local demo days. If I got the right deal on an iSupershape, I'd consider buying.
I understand why you would think that, because the only mention I can find anywhere is here: http://www.snowinn.com/ski-store/head-isupersport-sw-power---power-11/14737/p
Looks like an intriguing choice, but I have no idea about flex and materials, which is going to make it hard to pull the trigger on them.
