I demoed some skis -- three during a trip to Telluride in 2013 and another on a recent trip to Taos in 2014. I'm ~205 lb. and an advanced skier. I like bumps, steeps, trees, and even making turns on groomers.
First, some major differences in skis from the Telluride trip where we had a ton of fresh pow. Day 1 was 6th Sense Slicer, day 2 was Atomic Access, and day 3 was Cham97. I didn't like the 6th Sense Slicer -- heavy, clunky to turn. The Atomic Access was VERY fun and easy to turn in the bumps but WAY too flimsy for the groomers. The Cham 97 was a brut. It was my favorite in terms of being a strong, powerful ski, but too stiff for the bumps. I actually broke the Cham 97 (not quite sure where/how) and had to pay for the ski at the end of the day. Brutal parting gift on my out of town, but a fun day nonetheless.
In Taos this past weekend we had completely different conditions. Minimal snow, no powder. The Bonafide's were FAST. This ski just wants to take off. They're a lot of fun, but were tough in the bumps. Granted, I was in some hard packed bumps, but this ski can throw you back both in and out of the bumps. The metal in the ski makes for great responsiveness, but overall this ski isn't versatile enough if you're looking for an all mountain ski.
Next I'd like to try the Fischer Watea and the Head Rock n' Roll. And it certainly would be great to demo some Stockli's. Will post a review once I try those (hopefully before 2015!).
