I own the '08 NTBThey were my first skis. Soft as butter, light as a feather, playful, and forgiving. Their narrow waist and lightness makes them easy to pivot in the moguls. Great in the terrain park and best in the pipes. As far as edge grip goes, don't expect to rail any perfect GS turns with these wet noodles. Overall, it's a fun intermediate ski and you'll like it if you're looking to doodle in the jumps and pipes. Favors lighter skiers.
I currently use my NTB as a kiddie teaching ski, since they are quite inexpensive, I don't mind the kids skiing all over my topsheets. Can be gotten for less than 200 if you know where to look.
