Pros: Make skiing feel as easy as it was when i was 23 yrs old

Cons: Not found any yet

These skis have put the fun back into skiing. After using a straight ski up-weight technique that meant i tended to smear or skid my turns,these skis quickly (two hours practice) allowed me to become proficient at carving both long and short radius turns.

For anyone looking to buy their first ski or looking for a ski that willhelp them improve the 8K is well worth the investment.
