Life is full of compromise. I like the challenge of a fat ski on groomers. If you can carve one of those, you have real touch. It doesn't hold well. You make constant adjustments. Its probably not pretty. It may not even be possible. The 724Pro would be much better on the groomers, but the bumps could really be a nightmare. I, myself, couldn't turn them in the bumps. I have heard others here have the same assessment. My personal preference in skis is now like my preference in cars. Get something that is great for some purpose, with liveable compromises for other purposes. Don't get something that tries to be good at everything because it will be a compromise at everything. My advice is to decide what you like to do the most and buy the right ski.
