Of the two pairs of RAMP skis I have, one of them is the very similar ski, a 180 length Kumoniwannaskiya. I had originally wanted to get the Jailbirds but RAMP had a sale back in February for $199 Kumoniwannaskiya.. so that's what I ended up getting because I if I didn't like them, I figured that I could resell them at a ski swap for what I paid for them. My first run on the Kumoniwannaskiya the best I can explain it was they were just plain fun to ski on. Smooth, easy, and quick to transfer edges; the skis worked very well on the hardpack snow resulting from 6 weeks of no new snow at my local hill. My only regret is that the Kumoniwannaskiya is not quite as fast of a ski as I would like. Based on the specs I looked at when shopping for these skis, the Jailbirds should be a faster ski. If the jailbirds ski anything like my experience with the Kumoniwannaskiya, the Jailbird should be a very fun pair of skis. Mine carve and hold an edge very well and are just more fun on hardpack snow when I compare them to my Rossi E88's or my Nordica Enforcers. Keep in mind I'm 6ft and 200lbs advanced skier, so my experience might be different from someone else.
I've also got experience with the Chickadee, Groundhog, and Woodpecker skis through both my parents, sister, and fiancée. They have each owned at least 1 pair, and both my sister and fiancée have ordered or plan to order 80mm waisted RAMPs for the upcoming ski season to compliment their 100mm RAMP skis. Otherwise the 90-100mm waisted RAMP skis are pretty solid skis, stable, responsive, fun, not too stiff, and quite forgiving to mistakes.
