Modifications - The ski is very similar to last year's, the only difference being a slight flareing-up of the tail (along the lines of the G40, but not as extreme of a flare).
The Verdict - This ski felt like it had the most side-cut of the group (Salomon Pilot, Bandit XX, K2 Mod X) and, accordingly, was very carvy. This ski felt lively and very comfortable right from the beginning. Super easy to initiate turns and hold a solid carve throughout. It was also a surprisingly stable ski given how responsive it is - ultra stable when on edge and moderately so going straight (it seemed like it really wanted to turn even when I was trying to run it straight).
