i have and the best i can give is a somparison to jj's as i only had them for a couple runs
basically if ur not doing any jibbing, the s7's are a better pow stick. the pin tail and tapered design is like tht of the pontoons but in a smaller, more pronounced scale. also they are fatter at the nose. they just seem to slarve and surf the pow really well similar to the feeling of an arg.
on groomers i wouldnt rate them as highly as a jj. they just dont seem to have the oomph like a jj on piste. there still very surprisingly good on groomers (better than helllbents) but thhey dont seem to snap as well.
for charging in variable these are the bomb. they're are full sidewall construction with a solid flex underfooot and they just dont seem to want to stop. they love the speeed. the only problem is the tip does chatter a fair bit, a lot more than jj's but u cant feel it at all if u dont look at ur skis. i think this may be from the sidewall in the nise but i dont know.
yeh so over all they are a sick pow/ big mountain/ all mountain ski for someone whos not that into jibbing and loves the off piste.
Wow, this statement couldn't be any farther from the truth. Let's compare dimentions, Scratch steeze 185: 140-110-133. S7 145-115-123. Steezes are a regular camber and side cut ski, while the s7 is a revese side cut (with some normal side cut underfoot) and rockered tip and tail.
Now I understand that you may have misread s7 for s6, which is identical to the steeze, but with different graphics.
Ps. Steezes are sick skis, I own a pair and love them.
Ya, S6 and Steeze are same ski.
S6 is your traditional (like a hellbent) sidecut and zero rocker. S7 gives you the rocker and the reverse sidecut (except underfoot). If you're looking for a bigass pow ski that is like a regular ski, go for the S6. If you're looking for the new-fangled rocker thingy...go with the S7. Skied them both, like them both, have an S7 and an S5.
