Yesterday, I demoed a pair of Kastle FX84 in the 176cm length. Thist is more first foray into the Kastle line as I attempt to find a new pair of skis. The weather was moist. Mid 30's misting and windy which caused some areas to be swept clean of snow and exposed many ice patches which the FX84 handled with ease. Impressively I was able to cut across ice patches with only a little skidding when right after a turn.
I found the skis very lively, and would beg me to go faster down the hill, and responded best with short turns. They are very agile and would turn with ease if an obstacle came up. While not the heaviest in the line they did handle crud quite well as it built up during the day as well.
I am excited to try more of the line as I explore options for next year.
