I have a pair of last years M12 fusions, the ones with the intergrated binding, they are the 168cm I'm 6' 205lbs. I have skied in everthing with them, they do like hard pack and arcing, get them on edge and let them rip, I bought them for the wider amount under foot 70-72 or so, for better floatation in powder and they really float well even for my size. I like quick short turns mostly, bumps, steeps and trees but they will arc out long GS to super G length turns on low blue trails and hold edge fine. The one thing I'm not so happy is the bases, Elan base material seems soft, by this I mean when I take them off by stepping on back of binding with base of other ski there are little marks from the binding piece in the base, also can't seem to keep the wax on them especially near edges under foot. But overall I like them.
