“Me and my mullet loved those boots! All over Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Oregon, and heli-skiing in Canada.Bought them at the Gart Brothers Sports Castle in Denver. They bit my high instep hard but after much grinding and elaborate modifications got them to fit my abnormal feet. Then it was all fun until someone broke into my Bronco in Las Vegas (enroute to Taos) and stole them. The...” --Basement Ski Tech
“The AK Rocket Swallowtail came in only one size 195 cm. It is for slaying big mountain lines in deep powder. The ski has dimentions of 130/95/114 so, it has some conventional shape that enables it to competently ski on groomed on the way to the lift. This ski is all about charging in deep snow. It is a directional ski, but the swallowtail allows higher front end float and pivoting turns to...” --Cirquerider

“This was my second ski. I bought it cheap because it was a former demo and they just wanted to get rid of it. My plan was to use it to move up my skills and it worked very well. I skied about 25 days on it at 6 different Colorado Mtns in early seaon ice and 15 inch powder. It handled pretty much everything ok but thrived on mixed conditions. It would be a great one quiver ski for anyone...” --SkiDad46
“I tried them as a demo several times this year at Jay Peak. The ski inspired confidence in powder and allowed turns of all sizes with ease. I was able to experience powder skiing at Jay like never before. Smearing and all other powder type manouveres happened naturally where other wide wasted skis required more experience that I did not have and work to accomplish. The ski has a fairly durable...” --jmcosmo65

“$300 for skis without binding... Cant comment on durability because I havent had them long enough, and the only con is Ice but then again find me a ski thats good on ICE. Overall excellent ski, 5* on all catagories and truly backs up all the hype and the awards. 210mm of rocker technology actually is noticeable (wasnt buying the whole idea at first buy I decided to buy them, and its all there...” --Skier91
“ Just a copy of one of my old reviews into the new system : Originally posted on 4/5/08Skier. 6'4" 200lbs 18 yo. strong skier. modern technique. much more a "finesse skier" than a "power skier".
