Aren't you on Vists or Blossoms now? Were you looking for something softer?
Apples and oranges.I’ve been keeping my eyes out for a cheap pair of used SL skis, or something like a Rossi Hero Elite ST or MT Ti. The Harts caught my eye, although they obviously are narrower in the tips and I think have a longer side cut than a SL ski. I think the Javelin was Hart’s SL.
As a counterpoint to the Kendos, I have been skiing mostly on the Fischer RC One 86 and these are very engaging to ski on groomers and in crud/chop on steeps. They are not as fun in bumps, but certainly competent there. They can ski them, but bumps feel like I am avoiding using the best attributes of the ski (ie easy to hook up and rail, fantastic edge hold, stability) since they are sort of detrimental things in skiing a direct line in bumps. So I find myself skiing fewer bumps simply because the ski is more thrilling in other terrain. They can do a direct line in bumps, but the skis are sort of asking, why are you doing this and not something else?
In steeps that are less skied (and usually skied with all mountain charger skis), the more widely spaced moguls where you can do some more GS like lines and pop off a bump and do more of a bank line, they are definitely fun in that type of terrain. Other strategy that plays more to the ski's strength is skiing only the tops with larger radius. So these are a good bank line ski.Begs the question ... did you find a bump line for them other than direct?
