I got to try out my new teneighty's last night, and have decided to post what I disliked about them. I am a former skiboarder and I rented skis a few weeks ago and now have a pair of 1080's. I can only compare them to skiboards and some shaped rossignol rental skis I used. They were freshly waxed and were faster than any skiboard I have used and faster then the rentals, but the flex made turns a lot harder, ESPECIALLY on ice:. I found these things to absolutely suck on ice, so I hugged the side of most trails hoping to stay a way from ice. After the night went on I became fully used to the turning, and could turn fine. They seem fine in powder conditions, but the only time I used them in powder is when I hiked 20 ft up a closed trail. Overall I believe I would be better off with all mountain skis, but I am fine with the teneighty's for now.
