What have you guys heard about movement skis?

last season i tested the movement kamasutra and the rossignol scratch bling next to each other... because i realized at the demo they have the exact same dimensions and everything... basically had to compare them on the spot, in the most similar size possible.
The rossignols had more pop and were maybe a little stiffer.. (or was it the other way around?), and thats about the only difference. the kamasutra was not worth the 100$ extra you'd probably pay for them over the rossis.. still a solid ski.
I also tried out the Baggy.. it felt like a softer version of the VCT with a little bit more natural camber. seemed like they might possibly float better, but not charge as hard?
they make really great skis but not necessarily in every category. their narrower skis (twins) like the gladiator and kamasutra are more like burly directional all-mtn skis with a twin rather than park orientated skis (think scott punishers or k2 pes with a bit more burl). i.e. great if you rip around the mountain at high speed and want to take the odd lap throught the park.
their non-twinned all mtn skis are totally bomber too- demon, thunder etc are really high performance rippers. Goliaths are a really sturdy big mtn ripper, sort of in the dyna xxl category. great skis for sure. not sure about the baggy but i would think there are better options available in the 100mm waist bc freestyle arena.
all in all, the majority of their skis are really well made and great for directional, fast skiing. definately a freeride company that makes some twins rather than a freestyle company that makes all mtn skis.
