This is the greatest ski on the face of the earth. All those answers for the questions you have are coming, but long story short, those questions don't matter... you NEED these skis.
But about those questions I know you're asking here are my responses:
Are they noodles?
Yes, but imagine a half-cooked noodle that enters a press, butter, etc. with ease but flex out on you. Yes, sometimes you may fall when you go straight vertical on a skwheelie, but the cause for this in my case is my inability to ski, not the skis lack of functionality.
How do they handle on big jumps?
Beautifully, I generally forget about the flex on a big jump because I just feel the effects of gravity weighing me down (If that makes any sense). The super low swing weight of these skis makes them a beauty to join on jumps. To be honest the only time the flex will negatively effect me is on little spin tricks out of rails. If you land really backseat the skis will go with you and flex to new levels, but this is fixable with learning how to land upright.
How is the durability?
I'm on my second season with them and for the level of mistreatment I give skis this is a major feat.
How is Vishnu's customer service?
I rank it next to two customer service greats, Treefort Lifestyles and Deity Components. If you haven't heard of either of those companies please look at them. But for Vishnu, my left ski delaminated (Not to worry tho), I d'med them on instagram and was given a phone number for Emmet. I talked on the phone to the co-owner of a ski company in two-thousand and sixteen! He instructed me to ship out the broken ski and it would be replaced free. In a few weeks (Thanks to me cheating out on shipping) I received a new ski and a hat for compensation on shipping.
How many people actually own these?
From my discoveries not many. In the 1+ years of owning them I have found one other person riding them, and that was at peace pipe jam, not at a regular mountain day. A few people ride them across America and Canada as found on instagram, but in person almost no one rides them so you'll feel v rare and have many people ask you what skis they are. What is even better is the looks you get from ski tech's at shops when they see the name of a Hindu god on a gorgeous top sheet they've never seen. The guys at Suburban Sports CT love that it's a small brand so that's ill.
Overall please buy these gorgeous, flexible pieces of wood, plastic, and metal. If you're worried about a high price you're just not looking hard enough. Vishnu offers them at $335 for a good chunk of the year and even at $500 that isn't that bad for how good of skis you're getting.
Thanks for reading this far,
