Pros: As good as any ski in class

Cons: Will be missed by too many skiers wanting more. not as nimble as the outgoing 8.1


 

Review:

Although the 8.0 sits below the 8.5 in Blizzards product line, do not think of it as any less of a ski. the Magnum 8.0ti is equal to the 8.5ti..just 80mm underfoot and sizes that fall in-between how the 8.5's sizes fall. Choosing one or the other in these two skis really depends who you want your quiver to be set up. If you are lighter and slighter, the 8.0 would be your choice, if you are bigger and stronger, go with the 8.5 but either way, there is not a wrong choice. If either of these are going to be in your quiver, the 8.5 could be a great middle ski if you have a sixty some waisted ski or if you don't the 8.0 could be that hard snow ski for you.
