this ski = $$$. it is the most versitle ski i have ever skied on by far. if you ever have a demo day come to your mountain i highly suggest trying them out, or if you find some extra dough lying around, it wouldnt be a bad idea to just go buy them on the spot. hopes this helps. ENJOY!!!
absolutely i performs well!!! this ski absolutely shreds all mountain, and it would be even better for those out west in the softer snow. these skis float in powder, have AMAZING carving ability, butter with ease, and are incredibly durable on jumps. basically, this ski can do anything; it just has a little difficulty on the hard packed steeps, due to the softness of the ski.
personally i think the graphics are sick, with both of the skis together forming one image. i named my right ski "edward" because of the lion, and my left ski "richie" just because. dont hate. and the overall feel, like i previously mentioned, the skis feel awesome an all types of terriain, especially in powder and on the groomers.
i feel that it was completely worth the money. i spent $780 for the skis and marker griffon bindings mounted at true center (in december). the skis are just so versitle that it makes it totally worth the money.
personally i am 6'2'' 175lbs, and i got the 179s. i feel that this is the perfect length for me, as k2 measures a bit short. the ski is actually measured to a 183. this allows me to ski trees and bumps with ease, and also doesnt leave me with too much ski for park.
the flex pattern on the fujas is overall very flexy. it allows for excellent buttering ability, as well as assisting with flotation in softer snow and powder. the flex allows for amazing performance on rails without sacrificing durability on jumps, including those 80 footers. as an east coast skier, the flex doesnt work completely to my advantage as the snow is generally hard packed and icey, which leads to chattering on wedge turns when im an a steeper trail. but to solve that, i just make shorter turns!!! and the flex also makes carving much more intense, as you can really dig in because of the tip/tail flex.
durability = money. they have held up great so far after being skied about 2 times a week since early december. i dont do rails, so that would also assist in the condition. but i do do boxes and all the jumps in the world. the only damage in them is a gouge in edward's (right ski) nose, as i got buzzed by a gaper snowboarder in gore's terrain park when i was standing on a drop in.
