Honestly, these skis changed my life. I skied for 3 seasons on the Seth Vicious. I loved them, but it was time for some new skis, and I went with the chopsticks.
I'm from Utah, and so I ski powder. The shape and camber of the ski make skiing on deep snow as easier than skiing a groomer. Since there is no camber and such a long, gradual rise (the rise starts right outside of the binding on both the front and the back) staying on top of the snow is effortless, going forward or fakie. I sometimes feel like I'm cheating, especially compared to the effort it took to turn my 189 Seths. On my Seths, a lot of effort was used leaning back to stay up, and turning them in anything but the driest of powder was a chore. The Seth Vicious were great for straightlining and GS turns, but maneuvering through tight trees required reduced speeds and more effort. On the chopsticks, honestly, you stand almost upright, like skiing packed snow, and controlling them (i have the 185s) is a breeze even in heavy, march pow. I've been skiing crazy-tight lines that weren't possible before!!! Skiing groomers isn't that hard in them either. You just have to be going fast and work hard to put them on the edge. It's not that bad though.
FYI: I mounted them 1.5 cm behind the true center, and I feel good about it.
