i won't say i did'nt like the precision's. i just did'nt like the darting or sudden ski lift when they caught an edge. i must say I LOVE THESE FLEX SKI'S WITH DOOLY RUNNERS!! they are awesome for average cruising or the occasional agressive riding. ABSOLUTELY NO DARTING AT ALL....NOTTA!! on any surface! they are a little more forgiving than the precisions and steer with NO effort at all. this is with the front limiter strap shortened one hole, front springs on 4th setting firm, centre shock preload on softest setting, rear torsion springs on 2nd setting.... and they handle like a corvette on dry pavement. a little loose in the deeper snow but no more than any other trail ski would be. i would liken the comparison to the precision ski as ...the precisions being a high quality pirellie radial racing tire that bites the pavement like no other with no give unless it's sudden slippage...to the flex ski being a michellin radial that bites the pavement with a high quality grip but will give a little to lighten the steering resistance in all conditions. definitely a pleasure to ride with them on. BUT ...if i were to ride aggressively often or wanted to race on the trails often....the precisions are a much better and more aggressive bite on the ground. we rode 200 miles on saturday and it was sheer smilin and grinnin all day long!! i swapped back and forth with a bud on a 600 pooh classic with the M-10 and doolys on his pooh and the dooly's on the rev were twice the handling ability...yes you can ask mark if this is true jay!! he says he's gonna flog the pooh!! soon! just my 2 cents on the ski issue guys...take it for what it's worth eh??
