Pros: performance for the money
Cons: none so far
got this ski for my birthday. the rocker is great. i live in the east coast and this ski absolutely rips in any condition. its usually ice groomers and hard packed. but we have been getting some big storms, and the photon floats in the powder. its stable at speed but quick enough for skiing moguls or in the trees.
For the money, i don't think you can beat it. I was dead set on getting volkls or rossi's but then i came across the K2 Photon, and quite frankly the other skis don't compare for the money. I would highly recommend this to a friend.
one more thing. this ski is definitely for the intermediate to advanced skier. beginners might have some trouble with this ski.
