LP's comments are dead on-you do need to consider your approach to skiing to know if this sort of ski is right for you.

I spent some time on a few short radius slalom-esque skis (The Contact 9, CX70, Atomic Metron, Atomic SL11, head sl-never the SS however). They all ski the same-some have more rebound energy or take more commitment to carve, but they all respond best to the same turn mechanics.

You really do need to like short turning-carve everywhere type skiing to really get the most out of them.  If you tend to ski a narrow corridor, in the fall line on hard or groomed snow--then these sort of skis are the ticket.  If you want to play around, or 'cruise' a little more and meander down the trail--any ski with this small of a turn Radii is less 'forgiving' or 'easy.'. 

Slalom shaped skis make it easier to make SLalom turn-- if that's what your after, the CX70/ strato 70ti is one of the best non-race slalom cut skis out there.
