8.5 ti is one of the best skis I have demoed in a long time. Really like that ski. Not a fan of the wider flipcore skis I have tried. Don't like the feel in soft snow, but the narrow 8.5ti is great. I actually liked them better on that windy pow day at mt rose that day than the bone or the gunsmoke I had skied earlier in the day. Maybe I am just twisted.
