i work at a ski shop, (second wind sports in hood river) and we just got the APO Hutches, Sammy C pros, and Rons in. they feel like solid skis. and apparently their snowboards hold together really well. my guess is that they will be great skis, and kids will buy up the sammy c pros quickly.
I'm going to take the gamble and get the APO hutches this year, because Sammy is stoked on APO, and I'm curious of the hype on NS for rockered park skis.
