The 2007 Silencer was a noodle.
Here is K2's description of the ski:
K2 Silencer Skis 2007
The K2 Silencer is an all-mountain pipe and park ski built to ski all over the mountain like its big brother, the Public Enemy. The K2 Silencer has a slightly narrower footprint and cap construction design for response and agility. The all black tone on tone design keeps it ultra low-profile and will quiet even the toughest critic.
Here's what Ski Diva's review had to say:
The Silencer makes the perfect ski for lighter or younger skiers looking for a twin tipped all-mountain option, as well as novice freestylers looking for their first park ski. It’s light and easy, and equally as important - amazingly good value for money. But just because it’s not expensive doesn’t mean it isn’t well made. K2 use a Torsion Box Construction with a fir wood core, giving the ski good pop and durability, this build is then Capped to increase the toughness without affecting the overall light weight. It has an 80mm waist for versatility, which, with the 17m radius and directional sidecut, offers great stability in all conditions. Hugely popular, and not hard to see why!
Light and easy, intermediate, will handle lots of terrain, cap, standard taper.
Features: Torsion Box Construction, Fir Core.
Here's the review a self-described intermediate skier gave on Evogear:
I'm a chick skier & my K2 True Love's could no longer fulfill me, haha. So I've gone to the boyz skis. I broke them in at Hakuba, Japan... These make me feel like a pro, I can do whatever, whenever & when I let them run, they [*]run! They don't like crud yet still cut through it, but these skis have more flex in them than my previous. I got the silencer poles free w the skis & lost a basket my first day, [*]! K2, make tighter grommits!
She is saying that the Silencer has a softer flex than her K2 True Love's, which were intermediate skis.
