uh... if you're still readin' this, the LBFs area a great ski for steep chutes and deep powder. They're good in the bumps, though you can feel that they're heavier than an old school bump ski. On long crusing runs, they're decent, but you can tell that they're really not in their element when you get real racy and fast. I skied 100+ days on them, a lot in the powder, so I really like my LBFs! When spring came, they stunk it up big in the soft slushy crud... performed okay, but really tough on the legs. Mine held up fine and seem to be a real solid ski good enough for another season or two at least. I can't say much how they perform in the park, but they're real stable to land on off of lips and cliffs. In addition, the graphics on the bottom look awesome in pictures!!
