2011 Rossignol Avenger 82 Carbon


Pros: Turns and rides smoothly at high speed, This ski responds when you get on it as well as is comfortable to relax and cruise with.

Cons: Edge could grab more on ice. Jus have to trust the ski.

Pros: Holds on ice, skis great on packed, turns great in powder, stable.

Cons: Would have been nice if they'd have protected the tips.

My son and I both picked these up at Sports Authority for $419 w/ Axiom 120 bindings!  Worth every penny!  I'd read the reviews that give these skis ~3.2 of 5.  I've demo'd a lot of skis this year to make a purchase.  This ski skied as better than most and as well as the Rossi Phantom 80.  On corduroy with weight forward or centered, it's smooth as silk.  In the chopped up stuff, weight centered, groovy, even in the bumps with great swing weight. Provides good snap out of the turns (I weigh 200.bs.)  In powder, weight centered or back, turny as you need it to be. Very forgiving if you get your weight back, btw.
I really couldn't be happier.  Haven't skied crud, as we haven't had any here in Idaho yet.  Next week, maybe.

What don't I like?  There is no protection on those gorgeous tips, so they get pretty chewed up.  

What else?  Everybody loves the looks.  I know...not that important, but they do get a lot of comments.
