skied the M11 B5, not sure how it differs from the "c". Real nice ski, best of the Metron series produced.

I believe the "c" stands for "connected" as opposed to the B5i, where the "i" is for "integrated" and is usually ommitted. The M11:B5c is the M11:B5 - no distinction.

I bought a pair of 11:B5's this year and now have all of two days on them. The first day I loved them on the groomed, crud, trees, a couple of mogul runs, and a couple feet of powder. The 158's gave plenty of high-speed stability and even float for my 140lbs. The second day was with my son - mostly blues often at slower speeds, where they were entirely managable with no problem skidding when I wanted too. They're much happier going fast though, where they really seemed to come alive.

Yes/ correct, "C"-means" connected" and it is in the name of the model "Metron 11B5c". I bouth them today (they have a different sidecut compare with the previous years M11).
I have tryed them today also and the first impression I have- they are very,very fast turning skis. much faster than even my M11-s (05/06 production). Also they have rebound similar to slalom skis.

I picked up last year's M11B5 at a super sale at sierra snowboard & ski ($199). Fun ski. Mine is a 170cm length. It is a great front-side biased all mt. ski. It turns quick, not as fast as an SL ski, but has a lot of versatility in turn shape. It is slightly heavy, but with its B5-connected construction, it is very smooth and energetic. In powder, it is OK but it could benefit from more length and a softer tip. Of course, then it would have different feel on the front-side. Aside from my NASTAR skis, it is my favorite front-side ride.

My only real complaint is very minor. The colors of graphics are a dull blue & gray combo.

I'd buy that ski for $199, any way to still get a pair at that price?
