I skied the Kiku at one of last years demos...and LOVED it. I ski the Aura right now, and was set on the Kiku for a fatter ski for this season...until I read about the Pandora. I'm going to look into it a little bit more, but I can say that the Kiku skied really well. Super stable in crud and at speed, and nice float in the pow. After one run I looked at our buyer and simply said, "I want it".
The one thing about the Pandora is the size...I want something a little longer than my 163 Auras, but at 5'2, the 172 Pandora is going to be a bit big.
