Yes, HG is a great company full of awesome people, their skis are fantastic.
I've been riding the Keegan Kilbride Tall T x HG stinger and they've been holding up nice.
The stingers are stiff at first but flex out after forcing them to flex.
I haven't rode the Transfers but they seem really flexible and fun and just as durable as the stingers.
I've had a pair of stingers and a pair of Els. Love both. Did over 100 park days in my stingers and I lost some edge in the tip but they were very rideable still.
My Els have been great too. I take them in the park mostly. Outside the park I can charge so fast and feel completely in control. Never been so confident on a pair of skis.
I'm 6'2 about 180Ibs, owned about 20+ different park skis, get about 80ish days a season, and The 178 Stingers are easily the best pair of skis I've ever owned. Broke 2 pairs of skis by January then got my Stingers and rode them into the ground the rest of the season with very little damage done to them compared to any other ski I've owned and should last me through the following early season. The 1 year edge warranty is a pretty nice peace of mind as well. Warranty or not I'd stick with the brand anyways because these skis are the real deal and can take a beating on the mountain like no other. Also super responsive all mountain ski that handles well in mostly any conditions, really poppy if you're into ollies, surprisingly flexy which I like in a ski, and the top sheet hasn't cracked peeled or delaminated at all which is really impressive for half a season in the park.
Overall, get the skis you won't regret it! Especially when you see how crisp and clean the graphics are ;)
