Movement Jackal or Pariah - Anyone Skied Them?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I've been looking to replace a pair touring skis and came across the Movement Jackal and Pariah which both look like great options...really light, the width I want and they are offered in the length I want.  That said I haven't found many reviews of either ski that are in English.  Has anyone been on either of these skis?  If so, it would be great to hear a little more about them.

I'm of no help, except to bump this thread to see if anyone else can  help. 

 

Good Luck!

While I haven't skied those two, I have owned Movement Goliath's, Thunders, Sluffs and I now have the Source. Movement skis are some of the best I have ever skied, but tougher to get in the USA.  I buy them from: http://www.telemark-pyrenees.com/en/  The Jackal is a great looking ski on paper and I am sure it rocks. If you can get a good deal on them, go for it. You will not be disappointed.

Edit: I just looked at the Pariah too and they look sweet also. A little narrower than I prefer but what a smokin good price 305.18€ (ex VAT)

So I bought the Jackals and mounted them up with Dynafits since they will be my 100% touring ski.  I couldn't resist and took them out last weekend for a few laps at Loveland.  The setup is really light, but I was amazed at how well the ski carved and how they seemed to want to stick to the snow.  First lap or two I was a bit cautious because I'm not used to such a light ski, but then I realized how solid the setup is and just started doing hi angle carves and I was amazed.  Last season I did a demo day where I skied the Dynafit Stoke, G3 Zenocide, and few Black Diamond ski (all of the BDs were too heavy for long tours).  I came away thinking I'd buy the Stoke but the problems with binding inserts scared me away.  Overall the Jackal is about the same weight as the Stoke, much lighter than the Zenocide (though identical dimensions) and all the BDs.  In addition, the Jackal seem a little snappier in a hard carve than the others, so I'm glad I went with them.  I'll post up a full review once I get them out more.  For reference I'm 5'11" and 195 lbs and I'm usually skiing on a Legend Pro or XXL.
