Did you take these skis through any of Stowe's bump runs?
@Liam we didn't spend any time on "designated" bump runs like Starr, Centerline, etc. There were, however, some bumps formed on the left of Gondolier and the right of Perry Merril that we were able to play around on (We spent the majority of the day on the Gondola).
As long as you mount it a bit back from the center point they do great in the bumps. If you're mounting it more on the recommended line you get a feeling of a little bit too much tail and you're forced to just ski zipper line style. I find this is a pretty common issue with center mounted skis. The tail rocker definitely helps, but if you're buying a pair with moguls in mind I would definitely mount them back a little bit. Our non "park skier" testers were finding that 2-3cm back from the recommended mount point really helped the ski perform better for them.
