Seriously, scrimitars are really nice skis, I have yet to here anything bad about them. They're on my list for next year. People shred the crap out of s7's, scratches are probably the best 'classic' park/pipe ski you could ask for and they destroy all mountain. Its just that they've had to drop a lot of park skiers because they are a race company; it's just the way things are. They get way more exposure at FIS racing events than they would at the Dew Tour. People spend way more money on multiple pairs of high end race skis than people do on park and freeride skis. Trust me, I worked at a major ski shop doing millions of dollars a year in product and they make so much more money on carving skis than they do on park skis. Our market is like 1/1000th of the total ski market. It's unfortunate that they had to drop so many riders but they were going through tough economic times, its just the way things are, they need to run a profitable business.
And I still remember last year when Travis (No_Dub) and I literally went into every thread on gear talk asking about ar7's, Punx, Ace of Spades, ETC. and spent hours convincing them to buy S4's, they are an amazing ski!
And who gives a shit about graphics, as long as they look better than these. Ugliest graphic of all time.
