Pros: They feel very stable under my feet and I can turn easely on them. They have really built my confidance.
Cons: A little on the heavy side to carry and a little heavy on my feet on the lifts toward the end of the day.
I'm a tall man with a lot more weight than I need. I'm 6ft 4.5 inches tall and I weight 285lbs. I ski mostly in Pennsylvania where I live and in Utah where my daughter and son in law live. I have demoed many different skis in the last 2 years. Some I really liked and some I did not like at all. A.couple pairs I did like were the Volkl AC 50"s and the Solomon guns. The one that I liked best by a great deal were the Nordica helldivers. For me they were great in every category in the east and in the west.As you can see I rated them 5 stars in everything. I read a lot of reviews about a lot of different skis but it was hard to find many reviews on the Helldivers. They held an edge on hard packed snow and in deeper and softer snow and were easy to turn with. I feel very confident and stable on them everywhere. That is the main reason I decided to buy them. I got them for a great price but I had already made up my mind to buy the Helldivers and would have paid more for them. I'm sure they'll work geat for any size skier. Have fun on the slopes and ski safetly.
