wow. a lot of hate in this thread. I have been skiing on head skis for at least 10 years and have always noticed great quality. I ski on the 105 and have not had a problem skiing through crud or pow or anything. They still have the #1 sales in Europe so i think a few of you may be lost on what you're saying. I've skied on over 20 pairs of skis this season and still choose to ski on head. hope that helps.
