They say

The Superguide feels remarkably light going up and confidently sound when coming down.

We say

This is a fun ski that’s ideal in short turns, where it feels quick from edge to edge and whips into the arc, so it’s great on steeps. The start of a turn is easy to predict and the ski gives sensitive feedback underfoot, making it easy to judge the correct edge angles for difficult terrain. On longer, faster arcs it’s less stable and harder to adjust through the arc, though more bevel on the base might change this.

The start of the turn is smooth and easy

Playful but stable and well balanced in variable terrain
