i've been ripping the prior's all season and they definitely shred hard. i have them mounted just a little bit back of center (the mount line they have i feel is too far back) and they actually ride really good. i've ridden the 171s pretty hard and i'm currently ripping on a pair of 181s.
they have nice shape and turn real nice. they can hold a hard edge well, no chattering at speeds. they actually rode amazingly well from the first second i tried them on, some skis i find i have to adjust to. it's only fair to admit there have been some delam problems in the past, but they've been making slight design modifications and have got the problem on lock. the 181s held up really good in the recent powder, my first test ride of them in decent snow conditions. for deep snow conditions, it'd be nice to have them even fatter still, but then they wouldn't handle the park and pipe as nice, which they definitely shred. i've been kinda lazy in park because the tables have been only so so and the rails haven't been worthy of rounding my edges, but i'm gungho on pipe and they rip the pipe hard.
speaking honestly, it's a strong all mountain ski can handle the freeride gnar as well as the park. as a relatively new ski company, there admitedly have been some obstacles to overcome in production, but their experience in snowboard manufacturing has held them in good stead and they're developing good solutions. i want to push them to make them a little wider underfoot next year, hopefully the snowfall then will make it necessary.
honest feedback, not a hired mouthpiece
