The MRs are our park skis and they have a full twin. At 93 waist they are still good all around skis.
The Districts are a directional twin. The tail is a low rise tip that will enable the jibbers to ride and land switch but not affect the overall deep snow ride.
They have a medium stiffness and someone that flexed them a couple of weeks ago compared them to their Salomon Guns. Which is along the lines of the Gots.
I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with this pdf but it lists the flexes of most of the skis from 2007 if you want to make comparisons.http://www.endrehals.no/Flexcurves%202007.pdf
We sent our skis with a group that went to Portillo this past week and should be arriving home soon. They had a video camera and promised some good reviews for those interested. From what I heard they missed the good snow by a few days and were left with mostly groomers.
I got an email from one of them with a prelim review. Here are a couple quotes.
"I rode the Districts today... They are sick... I loved them. They are light and flexible but have little to no chatter. What impressed me too is that they hold an edge really well when you lay into the turns."
"I have you tell you I really love those skis!"
