Review:

The James could very well be the post popular if the while XX series. With the XX James's 90mm waist, the versatility of this model will make it fun east or west, frontside or back, hell you could through some A/T bindings on them and they will excel in the back country. Hard snow performance was very good for a ski with this construction and like it's sir name, the West, I hardly even felt that any of these are symmetric twins. I think to early rise in the tail has much to do with the lack of an overpowering tail.
