When, I first saw these skis I did not know what to think. I still have not seen another pair in the mts. My liitle bro is a snowboarder, and he would not shut up about magna-traction. So I took the the $800 plunge. Over the years I have skied on alot of skis, and these hands down are the sickest muthas of them all. As fat as they are they are obviously the love in the deep, but when I hit the groomer for the first time I felt like I was on a GS ski. I have them mounted up tele, and they rip. let me tell you Lib Tech is going to become a major player in the ski industry. I would definatly recommend these boards for all chargers.
