GotBlur, IME, people tend to rave about whatever they ski on; it's called "reducing cognitive dissonance," or "the grass is greener on my side of the fence." Until they don't, and decide they have to get something new; this is called "being a member of Epic." I've skied ancestral versions of the Kink, like the Karma. Since it's a Volkl, with a torsion box, Kink's will be decent on hardpack. I see them around Killington on the feet of good freestylers, so they must work since K-ton can be a very icy place. But they won't handle all conditions as well as a modern all-mountain, and they're not necessarily the best call for a big guy.
So the skis I named will be 3/4 as good in bumps and trees, meh to terrible in the park, and noticeably better on ice, in crud, and at speeds north of 40 mph. Part of the reason there are so many cheap park skis around at the end of every season is that they're very focused; designed to be good at some things that literally will take away their capabilities in other areas. Twins with tips and tails for buttering will be great in bumps. They won't support high speed stability, or optimal performance in crud or on ice. And since park folks tend to be younger, with less disposable income, hmmm.
OTOH, if you want to spend a lot of time in softer snow, bumps, or the trees, and just manage the ice, then Kinks might be the best choice.
Prices are just starting to come down, BTW. If you check back in April, skis like the Steadfast will be even cheaper. As will Kinks.
