I would not use them as a everyday park ski or for that matter as a everyday ski. The hellbents however are a whole different experience in the park and can be fun esspecialy buttering the shit out of everything.
They will be very sluggish due to their weight as others have said. If you just want to butter and mess about in the park they will probably work alright but if you want to progress and do bigger spins then they won't be great.
I don't see why you would want to even ride Hell Bents in the park anymore seeing as there are plenty of wide skis that are designed for park. Just to name a few: ON3P Kartel 98 or 106, Armada al dentes, Nordica Soul Rider, Dynaster Slicer, K2 Shreditors, etc.
Obviously those skis aren't as wide as the Hell Bents but they still are pretty wide and will give you a similar float feel you would get from Hell Bents but you won't have to deal with the extra weight of the Hell Bents. With Hell Bents you will struggle to do quick front and back swaps on rails and you won't be able to throw them around as easily on jumps.
They perform differently in the sense they're not park skis, so yeah. As far as in the park, you just gotta stomp. And if you can't turn anything except for a park ski, you should stay off of them. I used to even teach lessons on the things so if your actually a good skier (not some dumbass with their hands by their waist trying to look cool, using your upper body to wrench the skis around) then they're a blast. In 2011 they widened them out from 122 underfoot to 132 but they both are super fun. So yeah, if you can actually ski they're a blast, if you just slide rails and ride groomers, your gonna get your ass handed to you.
I'm a big fan. I broke my park skis and was riding only bents for a month or so a couple seasons back... Super fun. I still ride 'em in the park fairly regularly. They're obviously way heavier than a traditional park ski and can wash out on landings of larger jumps, but the presses/butters are awesome. Highly recommend it but it's probably not for everyone.
