Comments: This ski holds its arc like none other. Once the turn is initated, it will not let go. It is a very beefy ski, with a heavy feel on the snow, which does not like to be thrown around. As a result, edge switches are sluggish and slow. In the GS course, the ski is stable and grippy, but the sluggishness proves to be a major downfall, making edge switches difficult, making it hard to maintain a high line. This ski is suited to a very smooth GS skier who rarely has to scramble to make gates, because doing so is not easy. I would prefer something a little lighter.
