        Overall

        Also worth mentioning is the customer service. I haven't had to talk to them about a problem (only for telling them how excited I was that I won a pair of skis), but what I gather from other people is that BH is great about replacing damaged skis and such.

        Performance

        These skis perform really well. They are really good on hard pack or soft snow. The edges hold really well, and they can turn on a dime. It took a while to get used to carving on them but it wasn't really a problem. I plan to use these for everything but park riding.

        Value

        Bluehouse's wholesale method means they are able to sell their skis for very little so the value is great. (but I actually won my skis in a raffle!!!!). The maestros are comparable to the Armada JJs but for much less.

        Fit

        As far as I can tell the 189s are good for me (6'2"). Kinda too big for for spinning.

        Characteristics

        Pretty even flex, its pretty soft, but since the skis are so long they seem stiff in the front and soft in the back. they are really easy and fun to pop off the tails and great for landing on.

        Durability

        In the past BH has had issues with top sheet chips and delamination. You can see small marks on my skis where my edges have hit the top sheet, and the damage is much much less than any other skis I've owned; There's one insignificant bb-sized chip on my top sheet, and the rest are just scratches.
