Okay, brand new pair of skis, but with the 05/06 graphics. FIS regs (as they were) in 180cm length.

I haven't skied on them a whole lot, just a couple of days in Val Thorens so far. Great conditions for it - really late spring conditions with a huge base - rock hard in the morning (turning into a horrible slushy mess in the afternoon).

First off, it took me a couple of hours to calm down - I was told they were fast, and they most certainly are that! They've got a strong grip on the real hardpack, although you can't give them anything, they'll punish you for anything that you don't do quite right.

After I've skied on them a bit more (i.e. next season) I shall comment some more.
