You might not ski like Edollo on these at first but you will certainly be on your way. I was amazed at the pop and smoothness of the flex. You can take these bad boys anywhere, rip a groomer, slash some pow and then front 6 out like its no ones business. This is the one ski to rule them all. I skied the ARVti before these, and contrary to my beliefs, the Edollo was not overly soft. I like to call it the goldilocks flex. It's not too stiff, not too soft, its just right. The early rise in the nose allows for effortless nollies. These are not noodles and when bombing at high speeds there was no chattering. If you're afraid to make the transition from your trick sticks, don't be, you can do anything on these that you can do on a volkl wall or atomic punx and more. There is amazing stability gained when sliding rails with the 99mm underfoot. Locking on, leaning back and blinding 2ing is effortless. Like I said, if you show up to Keystone to ski park and it dumps snow mid day, no need to go home to grab the pow skis, these will charge anything. I would rate these 9/10 overall.
