yea i got them with this years scratch bindings (white on white!). To me, they were AMAZING! First runs I took with them were unbelieveable! Keep in mind, I am around 5'8 and previously i was skiing on scratch pros 05/06 size 148. My ghettos are 167s. So that was a 19 cm length change. I skied on my friends old scratches (red with the girl) size 169 pre season hitting some boxes and it was IMPOSSIBLE for me. So i was really worried I would suck on the ghettos. Well, i brough them up once we had enough snow and i couldnt belive how sick they were. I through some nice 360s first try on a semi pow jump under the lift, and when I was on powder I literally felt like I was floating compared to my old skis. They seemed to have a bounce effect in the snow I never felt. lol, so basically, I love them. Not so soft like my friends invaders (which i rode) but flexy enough to do semi decent butters and shit.
- so, from a skier coming from a way different ski, they were amazing... hope that helps!
