At fist I didn't like these skis. But after getting more time on them, I realized it was my technique. You need to actively transfer weight early in turn transition. But if you do they ski like a dream. If you don't, they tend to grab. They are incredibly light and a no brainer for touring. They turn very well, and are dynamic in that you can change directions and turn radius very easily where there are obstacles -- and in my case when my dog is running in front of me ;-). They are, however light and will get pushed around a bit in chunky snow, so be prepared for your tips to be banging together. I would definitely recommend. In fact I may be buying a pair of Voile Objective BC skis next year for low angle touring where it's all up-and-down all day with very little elevation gain.
