Had these end of last season. Magne-traction held well for me even on a de-tuned ski. However I only got 15ish days skiing on them before I had a full edge seperation from the ski. (nearly strictly rail skiing however) Had them warrantied and they gave a credit back. I disagree with them being the softest ski out there. I would say they are stiffer then the likes of blends, edollo, Vishnu's.
