I used this ski almost all of last season with a pair of marker dukes and the garmont endorphins.
I found the ski to be great when the snow was soft and fresh, but when I rode inbounds and snow got hard the ski lacked torsional rigidity, I could feel it twist off.
Great soft ski snow - very light - but the lack of metal hurts its performace in heavy crud and harder snow

I telemark on these skis and and they rip it. They can be a bit much to put on edge on a groomer, but why ride groomers? Very light and loves the powder, these with some BD 01 and they are the perfect BC setup.
