Pros: floats like a pro
Cons: stiff and hard to control
Maybe it's just me but I demo'd this ski for about 4 hours and it wasn't my favorite…but we came to an understanding after a few runs. Turns took longer than I wanted to engage, which surprised me in the soft stuff but made sense in the hard-pack and crud. I can see this being an awesome ski for wide open big mountain turns but took a lot of effort on shorter softer runs. Get ready to be on your A-game with these boards on. Gotta let them know who's boss. Then you'll have a good ride.
