Blizzard Latigo 177cm- Felt pretty meh overall. I did ski it short, but it felt REALLY short, and I didn't feel that much tip splay was warranted on such a skinny ski.
Blizzard Brahma- Good, but certainly not amazing skied well on the groom, and icy bumps, but it felt kind of vague in the front of the ski, and did not feel like it wanted to actually engage the front of the ski, also felt locked in at the back. A little more work than what I was expecting
ON3P Kartel 98 186cm- This ski is pretty much the same as the original Jeronimo. It's a playful ski with tip and tail rocker. But it will still go fast. I may actually enjoy the 1oh version more when i get on it. Would also make a great pow ski for a smaller person. If it was me I would probably see if I could get it with some extra carbon.
ON3P Wrenegade 102 186cm- This is the ski I have wanted them to make for 3 years. It's basically a slimmed down Vicik with a shorter turn radius. Goes fast, turns well. Signature feel.
Dynastar Powertack 84 176 cm- Again, I skied this a lot shorter than what I would have liked. I had a great time on this ski. I was expecting to feel locked in, but the power track let me break the tail free quite easily when I wanted, but held a real solid carve. This is a ski I would certainly like to try in a larger version
Line Supernatural 92 179cm - If you have ever skied the Prophet or Influence series, then the feel of the supernaturals will be very familiar. I felt like I was skiing a more nimble version of the current Influence 105 I currently own. The one thing I like about these particular Line skis is that they just ski well with no quirks. Some people think they ski boring, but I prefer the terms easy and predictable. They are also red. That speaks for itself. I also like that Line has re-designed their tip splay and profile to be less dramatic.
Fischer Motive 95 186cm - The ski that surprised me most. absolutely was not on my radar. this ski was damp, but not dead. Skied lots of turn shapes. Transitioned from ice to corn flawlessly. I skied this ski as fast as i could, and never felt like I was on the edge of control. It also shut down real easy for me. This was my big surprise of the day. Fischer is definitely on my radar.
