Overall these are good all around skis for an advanced skier. I found them perfect for everything on the east, from park to bumps and pow they were good. The only thing that they didn't do well was steep charging but hey they were never supposed to.
These skis were very good at what they were good at. They slayed in the park and held up pretty well on groomers as well. They also worked well in semi-deep powder, say 8 inches to 2 feet. Bumps were also easy with these skis despite their 95 mm footprint.
I got these skis for 400 w/ bindings last year which was a great deal. I feel very happy with the amount of money I spent on these sticks.
These skis are pretty soft. Softer than I would prefer, that being said I am an east coast park rat so they work, I also ski bumps and these work surprisingly well. However when I do charge the steeper stuff they can seem a bit to soft.
Also the rocker is a joke on these, it is basically nonexistent.
These skis held up decently. The edges held together well despite hitting rails a lotttt. However by the 3rd week the topsheet was basically gone, they chipped away to almost nothing.
great ski if you are considering them buy them. and i highly recommend the marker schizo binding
these skis rip every where. great in the park, great in the pipe, they slay palmer at any speed very stable, yet surprisingly quick edge to edge
they look sick
i dont know the retail price yet but i heard they will be around 500
i tested the 179 it felt perfect at all the mounting patterns i used. i was able to move using the marker schitzo binding(great binding)
i tried center stance, halfway in between core center and recommended, and recommended. all of these positions were great but i liked halfway the best for charging. core center still ripped but not quite as well as halfway.
The flex on the 2009/2010 kung fujas is very fun. firm were it needs to be but not too stiff either. they feel like the 07/08 k2 seth but just a bit softer
these skis have been out almost every day this summer and they are still in really good condition
