Okay I had the opportunity to ski some genuine race stock...

Yikes! Held an edge like no one's business and was very fast from side to side. In fact, for me, it was too fast.

I'm a little older and had a bit of a time keeping up with how quick and abrupt the direction change was in the "cross under". My knees didn't like it one bit. It seemed to only make one turn shape when the hammer was down. Very unforgiving.

On the flip side, my confidence in the edging was unshakable. It plowed through any surface condition without the slightest hesitation. The ski had one heck of a snap and allowed me a few hero moments.

Beautiful tool - under the right feet.
