I just bought a pair of 2012 Coreupt Born to drop and they are the best skis i've ever tried so far ! You are surfing the pow in control, and even in the moguls and on the hard snow they react well and are stiff and strong. im skiing for 20 years now and i discovered a brand for me. I highly recommend them. Also i met a guy who gave me a $50 off coupon card, if you guys want to use it as well, the coupon code to enter on coreupt.com is 1210VIPA.
