Disappointing - Gimmicks
A History of Products Designed only to Reduce Darting
Products that present a flat profile up front will push even more in the corners because the weight is focused towards the front of the ski keel. Their turning carbide wears heavy on the front inch or 2, just like the OEM ski turning carbide.
The inability to avoid trees or make a tight corner are downsides you may not be able to live with.

(As already mentioned, on my website, I am not a fan of any aftermarket ski. Unless you ride mostly off trail, OEM skis work fine, with my system!)
The only positive reason to use Simmons skis is for improved floatation off trail. It has been established that Simmons skis dart following other Simmons skis as well as Ski-Doo's Precision skis.
The similarity of the distance between the carbides on Simmons Flexi-ski's, Gen II, Gen III, Ski Doo's Precision skis and Split Rail skis indicate they will dart following each other.
The turning carbides on all these skis have the same wear pattern as OEM skis.
