Strenghts:
Extremely high performance to weight ratio.
Great off piste and on
Stable at high speeds for their weight
Playful
Very stiff flex for their weight
Great on hardpack and ice for their 100mm width

Weaknesses:
Tip deflection due their light weight
Start to chatter in the 60's MPH

Summary:
I paired them with atomic shift bindings for exploring the side and backcountry of my home mountain of Cannon, and Mount Washington, NH, and was shocked on how well they skied on and off piste. Cannon and the backcountry of New Hampshire are notoriously icy. They carve on New England ice way better than expected. Tip deflection is sometimes an issue, but I have always been able to get them back around and recover due to their light weight.
