well, ive been riding mine for a month now, and i abslutely love them. i ski the park with them, knee deep pow. groomers, they work super well on everything. super light, makes spinny tricks and railtricks really fun. when your spinning and you dont quite make it around and land sorta side ways, you dont catch an edge and eat shit, you just like land sideways and ski out sorta, but i reccomend them . soo fun. nice flex fun for little butters everwhere. i personally like using them on powder days instead of my czars, i donno why, i just find them more fun. im 5'9 and i ride the 179 cm 2012's.
