They do make a good ski but they aren't "leaps and bounds" better than other high-end products from the major manufacturers. The best analogy I can give is to compare ski gear like this with high end audiophile components. You can get 98% of the finest quality audio gear by spending 60% less and it's the same here. A $800 pair of mass produced slabs is going to be 98% of what the $2,000 Stockli slabs would cost you. As others have stated, that 2% would likely be lost on the majority of skiers (including the ski snobs). In other words, there is no really "good" reason to spend SO MUCH more on a more exclusive ski so it's mostly vanity rather than any performance issues.
If you still decided you want a pair, I would encourage you to buy a used (or new, old stock) Stokli if you can find them for a 'reasonable' price (e.g. at LEAST 50% less than they sold for new). Heck, I've even been tempted to get a pair or two I've found in the off season that were "left over" and heavily (50% discounted) but even then I could not convince myself to part with the cash for a pair of sticks I would only use when once or twice a year when I could find powder somewhere out west.
