Comments about Dynastar Cham 127 Skis 2014:
Very big. Very aggressive. So far I have only demoed them, but I liked them enough to buy a pair which just arrived two days ago. From the little bit of time I've had on them, they are my third favorite pair of skis I've ever ridden (after K2 Obsethed and Surface Lab 001). They are definitely not a daily driver, at least if you ski in bounds, but if you want a niche ski for those days that you want to go out and charge hard on the big lines, they're perfect. When I demoed them it was not a powder day so I can't comment on flotation. At low speeds they are very hard to control, especially in bumps. They only start to work at about 40mph. But when you get them going fast, they are amazing. Even on groomers they feel like a race ski. At high speed they hold an edge amazingly well and they're probably the most aggressive skis I've ever ridden. I haven't gotten a chance to ride them on the really steep and gnarly terrain they are designed for, and I have my doubts as to how maneuverable they will be in technical situations (i.e. narrow chutes and tight trees that require quick turns), but I would love to take them on steep spine walls, that is where I expect them to be most at home. They are heavy, but considering the kind of ski they are and the terrain they are designed for, I don't see that as a down side, it just makes them that much more powerful.
As much as I love them, I would not recommend them to anyone who is not a high-expert and a very aggressive skier. They are way too much for most people to handle. If you can handle them, however, I couldn't recommend a better hard charging ski for wide open, steep, big lines. Just know that they're very much a niche ski, not a one ski quiver.
