JustGoWithItYeah, I did all last season. It's not a very soft ski compared to the al dentes or afterbangs. But they are not rock hard either. If you plan on hitting rails all day then Kartels would not be the best fit, they are an awesome ski for big features and all mountain stuff but they may be a bit heavy and wide for smaller rails. Don't brush all the praise ON3P's skis get to the side though. They are in another league all their own.
Yeah I have the 106s and have spent time on the 98s. And I love both, but if op wants soft then I'd suggest looking elsewhere. They are extremely playful, but the flex is no soft imo, but then again im a small dude. I would recommend ON3P any day of the week tho
