Have been skiing 9.22 at 180 for four seasons. Planned to test R11, B2 as well as Stormrider XL but didn't get past the first test.
strengths - edge grip on the hard pack, very stable through the crud, plenty of float in powder. I expected them to be good off-piste but was very impressed by their on-piste performance - felt like a high performance GS
weaknesses - none really except that these are stiff - noticeable on landings and if you hit the tops of moguls

These skis have a reputation as being very demanding but I think anyone with sound technique would enjoy them.
