The only difference between this years Silencers and those form all the other years they were made is the graphics.
That's a fair price considering you're in Canada, but try to find some better bindings. You could probably find a better pair of skis at a shop near you for $100+/- more, so i would look around some more. Silenncers are ok for park and all mountain, but they aren't very lively, and not great in powder. I got a pair used and they only have one place where the edge delaminated after 70+ days of heavy use, so they're pretty durable. I like ow they ski in bumps. I would look at K2 Disorderlies (if you want to do more park) or Extremes (for more all mountain) both those skis will ride better, having sidewall construction, but that also makes them a little heavier. Since your shop carries K2, they probably have 1 or both of those models and I know at my local shop the Disorderlies are like $70 more than Silencers.
Don't mind me.
