Looking to get a second pair of skis for this season, and want freeride big mountain ones. I've skied BCs, B2s, Pocket Rockets etc. but seen the Zags and the Factions, and they look hot! Anyone actually skied them though? What are they like?!
i think kjfreerider knows enough about skis. what the hell would you know? hes owned almost every big companie's twin in the past 3 years. i think he has enough experience to talk. he didnt even say anything so what the fuck are you talking about. everyone who ive talked to that has ridden faction lieks them. no comment about zag

zag makes very good skis. they float a shit load better than any other skis i have ever skied. they have a longer and wider tip than most skis to enable you to float at low speeds.
masuaro is a swiss company whos got two skis out. a fat and a mid fat. they are very stiff skis.
hope that might have helped someone
^ Exactly. They are designed to float much higher than most other skis at lower speeds. That's because at anything faster than a low speed, the sidecut starts hooking up and they get super squirrely. Sidecut = bad in powder. Not turning on Zag's is next to impossible.
Sidecut= bad in powder ???? Have your skis sidecut?? Or do u ski over tradicional skis that didn´t carve anything. I´ve got the Zag Freeride Big and I have to say that it´s amazing the way they turn and float over all kinds of snow. U don´t feel the difference between piste and off piste. The only thing I dislike is that they are a litle heavy and their tail is not high enough. Try them and u´ll be able to talk about them
AHeppner have u ever seen or ridden on a zag ski? no? though not since if u had seen them u would be like wtf that side cut is messed. like the ones i demoed last yr were like 130-80-110 they were really wierd. i know they make other more normal skis like those twins they make the fly or super fly or whatever they r.
from what ive heard zag really really sucks
'You're from Ontario, and you're an idiot, meaning that your opinion can pretty much automatically be dismissed worthless. Yes, I can back that up, I used to live there. Moving to BC really opened up my eyes to what skiing is really about. HINT: Skiing isn't about tiny verticals, shit talking, and private clubs galore. Get the fuck out of Glen Eden and Craigleith or Caledon, and get real.'-what jib this thinks of me
