i bought them last year and i rode them 5 or 6 times. the new PEs have stiffened up a little and are also wider in the waist. they float in the pow, and they come in half sizes now. they have a p-tex top sheet wich gets chewed up pretty fast (yeah thats right p-tex TOP SHEET). These skis are a much more versitle ski for the typical free rider. Still great in the park and on hardpack but they ride the pow better.
PE's did not become stiffer at all, this is your imagination. The P-TEX does make the ski lighter than past models. Will you notice?, probably not much at all, it is a rather miniscule difference, but unplanned and humerous just the same. Good thing about the P-TEX top, if you do bash your skis together while riding, you can repair anything very easily.
