I loved the Axis Pro, but think the Recon is one of the worst skis in it's category. Every single bit of the snap, crackle and pop of the Axis has been drained out of the Recon. It may have been the successor, but it's not a better ski.
If you liked the Volkl's, you'll hate the Recons - they're like real skis on an overdose of Valium - everything happens so sloooooley....
