Nordica sent EpicSki a blank Patron to help get us through the summer... Complete with core shots, this ski thought it had seen its last days during R&D until it got to our office. The Patron has been to Vegas, a bachelor party, a wedding, 5 states and 3 ski resorts.
This ski is a 10 out 10. The name, color scheme, spacing and durability screams.. "SALUD, CABRONS!!" The metal free Patron is lighter and more maneuverable ensure a quick pour to party time. SKI Magazine rated the Patron #1 in forgiveness, I have to disagree, there is no forgiveness here... The Patron shotski WILL kick your ass if you don't pay attention.
My overall take on this ski is... Buy the Patron to ski but if you must the Patron will hold its own in ANY bar / office / party / chairlift.
