I like them but in actuality they're not right for me....
Don't worry about a thing, Jimski.
Most of the people who have dissed the PEAK 88 have never skied it. They've heard it is softer (OMIGOD!) than the Monster 88 and have then proclaimed the Peak 88 to not be "expert" enough for a really "CORE" skier. Of course, most of the armchair critics have probable never skied the Monster 88 either.
The Peak 88 is a wonderful all-around ski. I've skied them quite a bit this year and I love them.
(but then... I'm a shill for Head and my opinion is suspect)
