For me these are the perfect park ski. I only weigh about 145 but after I rode the skis a few times and broke them in I was able to flex them better than most of the other skis I have ridden. I know a lot of companies claim this but I found that even though I could flex them really well they still had a lot of pop. Its also clear that the way they build their skis pays off because I rode them all summer at hood and all winter and they held up incredibly well. I ended up losing some edge at the end, but hg has a really solid warranty and they were cool about replacing them. The only downside I can think of is that the skis are only made in sizes up to 178, which is a bit of a problem for my taller heavier friends who still want to rep them but need a longer ski. I plan on getting another pair once my current ones are dead.
