I've used these skis everywhere. From skiing crud in the midwest to skiing pow out west.
I've used these skis for a couple seasons now and they have been amazing.
I'm a bigger guy so it's not always extremely easy to find skis that are stable while also being soft and buttery at the same time but these skis definitely got the job done.
If you are a park skier that likes to venture out into other types of terrain every once in a while I would definitely recommend these skis.
I bought the 2012 Chronic in 2013 during some clearance sale and I got it for a very reasonable 379$?? If you live in mountainous or ski 20+ days a year there I wouldn't find it reasonable for you to buy this ski. It is marketed as an all mountain park ski which, to an extent it is. But, I do not recommend it to be used like that ALL THE TIME. I live in Illinois and for the 5-10 days I get out west a year they function decently but do not handle well in powder or less than desirable chunky/icy conditions. If you are an east coast/mid west region skiier this is the ski for you. They handle well in the park. Have a decent amount of pop and they have an overall steezy vibe to them. If you just ski park, I would recommend you to look at this ski a little more, but there are definitely better 'all park' skis out there too. The top sheet on these boys is definitely cool design wise, but it peels and chips, which happens to every ski.

I think they skis are a good one ski quiver at least for me in the midwest. They ski well in the park, moguls, and groomers. I think they should do well in some powder too considering how they are pretty wide. I mounted mine up towards the tip more than what Line marks it at for more of a park ski and they pretty much shred everywhere for me.
These skis performed great for me they did everything I wanted them to do for the most part. I did have some issues in which they would chatter a bit and not hold an edge but it was rare.
I thought the skis had some dank style that stood out. A lot of people said they looked cool. I like the brightness and stuff they look ill.
Considering how little money I have and how well they performed, I think they are a good deal.
I thought the fit was fine for me and I had no problems with 171.
This ski is a bit stiffer than a full park for butters and such but its poppy and responsive. I found it pretty easy to hop up and jump where I want and these work great all over the mountain. Its definately stiffer, but I can still to butters and presses and stuff well. It carves pretty well too.
One issue I have with the durability is that the edges, and top of the ski get scratched and damaged really easily compared to other skis I've had. The tails are pretty beat up already.
It is a great ski,would certainly recommend to anyone
the skis perform well, they have a nice, easy turn which can be ridiculously quick and sharp or a large carve. I found the ski to struggle a little in thicker slush because of the really lightweight design, but still manageable.skiing switch was easy as well. they held up in pow as well
I personally love the graphic, with the fluero orange and green
the ski is of very decent value, not a huge bargain but still a great deal for what you get
the ski was probably a little long( it was 185 and I am 181) but they still performed well, they definitely did not feel unwieldy
the ski had a strange flex pattern, could be due to the thin tips. took some getting used to but after a while I found it rather good; soft and playful
so far, the skis have held up well, but the plastic laminate on the top sheet has been scratched away upon closer inspection
