Strenghts:
Most of all Great fun. Not demanding for me at all, yet Expert level performance comparable to heads racing dept skis. Carving- sticks a carve like nobodies business, with great feel underfoot. Great on hard snow, or a little chop and freshies.

Weaknesses:
None I can tell of yet

Summary:
My skis are Limited Edition Franz Klammers for the Vail American Ski Classic, which I believe are Supershape Magnums under the tops (without a chip). I highly recommend the Magnum... it sure impresses me... worth a test anyway if your Ski shop offers Head Demos. For rec racing, and bomber turns, I am dying to try the Supershape Speed, which could make a great stable mate to these.

Strenghts:
It is possible to pull on properly in the turns without losing the grip, good "push" from the cherry system

Weaknesses:
I've only tested them once offpiste, nothing went on, too narrow waist for off-piste skiing

Summary:
really stiff and witty skiing

Strenghts:
A ski to rely on.
When you trust your own legs, just hang on, the ski will take you wherever you want.
Have tested and used 156 cm of skis, but can imagine a snap of longer skis and enhanced experience.
Very easy-to-handle, with good technology, and also works in more relaxed driving with the children at a slower pace. Soft, wonderful turns that make you happy ... Easy to control in the ride and speed - high or low, just to choose. I'm able to certify the mentioned ice grip and the kick out of the turn.

Weaknesses:
Have tried the offpiste ... quickly skipped from there to the nearest piste. May depend on practice and experience to some extent, but rather use other skis to do so.

Summary:
The new favorite ski slope has to be "bass" when I mostly stay in a pisted terrain. Requires complementary skis if you want to go out in the terrain - which will be my option when I'm completely in love with the skis ... no allmounties here!

Strenghts:
Really nice skiing with good pressure in the turn, up for years v.13 and pressed. Works really well in a bit harder pist but also incredibly good to drive the sorbet with. Strong recommendation !!
However, I think you should be a good skier to take advantage of the ski and make it worth its price.

Weaknesses:
Personally, I'm a lot of heavy skis, because I'm a big speed fan so the minus may be that they were slightly easy for my taste in terms of weight.

Summary:
Have a good slide, which you can have fun with pushing it to the maximum. Suits well as pair 2 or 3 in the collection. Should you only have a pair of skis, I would recommend a pair with a larger radius and a bit heavier ..

I will easily buy these for next season !!

Strenghts:
Ready hard pistade picks in high speeds with bravur. Very nice and light skis. The carving really gave an extra shot out of the turns. The swing radius of 13.5 meters was a big plus.

Weaknesses:
The cushions / pillows were not as nice to go in.

Summary:
Really good skiing, worth every penny!

Strenghts:
Top piste skiing, 2 years old on this 47 days / year went on the XRC 800 earlier, which was a great skiing. The difference between these is very small

Weaknesses:
No offpiste skiing, too bad,

Summary:
Is very pleased with the ski, but the price difference between XRC 800 and SHAPE is not defensible.

Strenghts:
Wonderful carving ski with wide range of use in the piste.

Weaknesses:
Have not tested the off piste

Summary:
Have tested the skid (both 156 cm and 163 cm) on several occasions during the past week. The week has included family skiing in flat slopes as well as own rides in harder steep (black) slopes, and the ski has worked well in all modes! Good cut in calm speed and still speed stable with a sustained bite when I lay on a lot more. Very impressive! By comparison, I can say that I also tested Atomic Race SL 11 (156 cm) during the week. The Atomic skid worked very well when I lay on, but felt too hard for the quieter family pace. Not as wide as the Supershape. For me, a 163 cm Supershape would be a perfect option for both skating and for development.

Strenghts:
Really stable and consistent piste skiing. Works really well in short and long turns but is a bit more demanding for the legs. (could barely jump on afterskin the other day). Inann yes, I bought them my requirements that they would not flatten, manage short turns and the layer was beyond my expectation. On the ice they are just pushing down the steel edge a bit extra so you get a really good ice grip.

Weaknesses:
there are no weaknesses ,,

Summary:
A perfect ski for those who like to drive fast in the piste and still feel the stability. even for those who love to let the carving work in short turns.
Before I have gone on atomic slc 9.2 with radius 11. The superhigh was both faster and more consistent in the piste.

Strenghts:
Stable and at the same time very easy-going, however, apply the body weight / a little leg muscles to get the most fun out of this highly skilled ski. Had a couple of really good pistachios with 2 meters longer radius before but experience Supershapen as both stable and flexible for long as well as short turns.

Weaknesses:
The forest and the design .. ;-)

Summary:
Acquired these skis about 4 weeks ago. Have finished with the Swedish mountains and a trip to the alps. Tested freshly preserved, forest and 30-40 centimeters of fresh snow (on pistachio ground)
Summary of this: In piste rides, this is very nice skis, very good grip, good speed and stability in the carvingen, and works well to slap a bit in the back of the ridge.
Forest (Not my strong side) Well, I'll skate it with these skis next time ..
Loose snow. Works, but there are definitely better skis to use even there.
Wanted good stable pistons and got terribly good teams that were beyond my expectation.

Strenghts:
The ski has a very good ice grip. The ski is a bit heavier than other skis, so it has a huge speed stability. I'm 190cm and my skis are 170cm. It has awesome fun slalom features but also goes like a grand slalom. It has a relatively wide waist that makes it possible to cushions but it is not designed for that purpose.

Weaknesses:
It's not very good at pillows but otherwise it's a wonderful ski.

Summary:
Awesome nice skiing. The most fun I have traveled on. While I tried and bought this ski, I also tried the Rossignol Zenith Z9 oversize which was very nice to ride on. It has a larger radius and a slightly wider waist so it did not really fit my ride style but incredibly speed-stable and good even in pillows.
