Update to review above, a year later, moved mount point forward 2CM

Updating the review, halfway through a second season, I was skiing new 165cm BD Amps everyday and the 178cm Megawatts gathered dust, until I moved the mount point forward 2 CM from original 2010 BD recommended alpine mid-boot at 748mm. In 2011 BD, changed the Megawatt ski flex and geometry slightly, and changed the recommended alpine mid-boot for 178cm at 765mm, and also added some recommendations for "forward mounting" the Megawatts "If you’re using it as an everyday ski and want to arc on hard pack, mount at +2.5 cm." After doing this, my 178cm Megawatts are once again my everyday first choice over other great skis in my quiver..

great in powder, soft bumps and trees - not so much groomers

first 2 runs on the groomers, I thought I'd paid a grand for skis I couldn't turn - not a ski for inbounds groomers on man-made hard snow. But the 2010 178s ski like a 155, turn great in any soft snow, powder or mashed potatoes, and pretty quick in tight trees and soft bumps, but especially in deep, new snow. More versatile than I thought - not just powder-specific.
