Just received a 2007 System 8. Coming from a 2003 Truth (turns out, a badly rated stick).
After just one ride:
>Awesomely better damping in rough conditions, I was quite surprised how much better
>More controlled, flowing turns
>Still great acceleration (need some glass to really evaluate)
>Smooth. The Truth would "wheelie" out of the turn if I didn't execute just right. I felt immediately at home on this ski with fewer radical responses from it
>Great value, check out www.wileyski.com
, I think it was a great deal
