yea they seem alot like AR7! maybe i'll go for them ;)
Hahaa well i've been wanting the Thalls for quite a while now, but i'm not feeling the new silver graphics( yea of course the color and graphics has a saying!!) like the old school look on the new AR7 tho
But yea the APO's looks so sick and the fact that Sammy rides them silly dosen't hurt either haha!
Skis are great, I tested them in various conditions.
Regular camber, but the nose is really soft, making it easy for butters and nollies. Stiffer tails give more pop with ollies and help with landings on big kickers, bases are fast. Slanted sidewalls work good - they protect the topsheet well.
Didn't have any problems with skis yet and they were tested hard, on one backcountry jump I even broke nose part of look px 14 binding, but skis were intact.
I ride 178 model, which is 87mm underfoot, I personally prefer narrower skis - but as I said it's personal.
But this width together with soft nose made it possible to ski backcountry pretty easy, I did few drops over 5/6meters in fresh snow and had no problem with riding it away. (not a backcountry ski for sure but if you have one pair, you will be able to go off the track without worries)
I have a pair of 172 hutches (now the Kai pro) and they are super playful, buttery, and DURABLE. They flew out of the back of a truck at 70mph and there was only a light dent in the tail of one, and some minor scrapes. Also they've seen about 50 park days and not one edge crack.

I'm thinking I am going to get the APOs, ive been looking at reviews all day and theres nothing but good things to be said about them except for a minor weight complaint but im a big guy i can handle them. Everyone has said they ride flawlessly and what you said only reinforces the durability claims.
