While the Instincts are pretty frontside biased, I don't think they are as frontside biased as the Supershapes, no KERS for one thing, and Supershapes are stiffer, although I don't know that from personal experience only from talking with others. I plan to demo the Supershapes at Big Sky in a couple of weeks so I can then form my own opinion.
Cool, thanks for sharing. The Instinct definitely sounds like a nice ski, and this helps clear up the difference between them and the Monsters. I have skied the Titan and I thought that was a fairly stiff ski. Haven't skied the Rally to compare though. Gonna get a bit confusing for buyers next year with the M83, I83 & I84 all in tow, heh.

Ah, this analogy helps. Glad to hear the Supershapes are still around too.
