These are really fun skis, but keep in mind they are park skis (not all-mountain) and they aren't very durable.
This ski was easily the funnest park ski I have skied. It's fast, amazingly light, and easily buttered. That being said, it was the worst ski I have ever used outside of the park. I used them on a day where there was an unexpected 9" overnight, and they were pretty bad. They can wash out on drops and skiing in crud really easily.
I like the design, the newer graphics look better though. These seriously are some of the lightest skis I have ever felt too.
I bought them used for $170, which was a good value I thought.
I had the 173 and I'm 5'8". It was a decent size, I wish they had a size around 176 or 178 though.
I really liked the flex of these skis, they were easily the softest skis I have skied. Despite being really soft in the top in tail they were incredibly stable at speed and on landings.
Durability was easily the weakest point on these skis. The base scratches really easily and so does the topsheet although these are only minor issues. What really sucked was a sidewall issue that apparently is common in punx. First, my base cracked underfoot, which looked like a core shot. This crack eventually cracked all the way through the core and topsheet, yet I still skied them like that. Eventually the crack got so big that my binding ripped out because the entire topsheet came off underfoot. I have also heard these have bad edge durability but I dulled mine alot before using them and I didn't get any edge cracks in 15 or so park days (my salomons got 20 cracks in half the time).
