I didn't say they suck or they can't do them.
I just said that they are a handful and I think plenty of people would agree with me.
Also the lifter and binding put the boot higher which could make someone improving in the bumps work alot harder to stay balanced.
Why not ski something that is fun in the bumps versus something that makes you work your ass off and tire you out after half a day.
I think the R11s are a stiff and heavy ski compared to the XXs.
It's all a matter of opinion, preference, and ability.
