Read the Review Transcript: Evan here, just got of the Elan Puzzels. i give these ski 4 out of 5 stars. Real realy solid on the rails. No catch in the tip in and tails for any switch ups or anything. So that skier that really likes hitting the rails this is definitely good for. On jumps and hardpack it was also solid. If anyting on hardpack, not as stable as I would want it to be. Still with it's flex patter it still skied well around mountain.
