mine 08/09's literally just came in yesterday..
just get em, ive spent months and months looking for the right ski (light, buttery but is torsionally stiff so you can still hit jumps and go real fast without chatter, durable) and these were the ones EVERYONE reccomended and said you couldnt go wrong with them
sorry i cant actually give a personal skiing experience with them...
just throwing it out there..griffons if you are willing to trust all that plastic..
unfortunatly im going for it and taking my chances..
