Love my 7 1/2" shapers! I noticed a huge difference in soft snow. Still a mild push untill i increased the ski pressure by tightening the springs, now it rails! On ice it is about the same as regular 8" carbides.
I put the 9" shaper bars on my F7 and it steers great. Only on the iciest of corners does it push, but otherwise, the sled goes where you point it. I would definitely recommend them and will put them on every year until something better comes along.
Over 2200 miles on my F7, and so far, the 9" Shaper bars are one of the best things I've done to it. Ditto all the positive comments above -- very good steering and they do seem to get rid of at least SOME of the darting.
Just a reminder that the 6" Dooly's I tried were absolutely worthless as far as any kind of aggressive riding/steering whatsoever, but they DID get rid of all the darting. For right now the 9" Shapers stay on unless I decide to try a set of one of the SLP skis. -- Roy
