1kewldewdI have yles and they are pretty cool. I don't think they are the best as a powder ski as I found they were somewhat lacking in float sometimes do to their low rocker. I found they worked best for skiing crud or just all mountain skiing. They carve great and are really stable. My brother has crjs and he doesnt think they carve that well but they carve that well. He also doesnt find them that stable. So if you want to charge more or care about hard snow performance go yle but if you want more surfiness go crj
Where do you have your yle's mounted? If you mount them back about -2cm the float improves greatly from the recommended dead center.
I chose the yle over the crj because I can't stand tapered tips. They tend to feel shanky at times over the tried and true traditional tip and tail shape. Some people are a fan of that taper and it fits their style of skiing but I come from ice coast ride nothing but full camber traditional skis to try to gain what little edge you can get.
The YLE though to me skis like a big fat park ski built for pow. They feel like a traditional park ski with that typical 20m turn radius that can occasionally wash out on the tails for me at 5'11 220lbs on the 187 length but its a manageable tail wash.
