The Bash 116 is a tricky one to review. It's versatile, it handles pow and trees well, carves pretty effectively, is solid enough to charge, balanced enough to jib and generally does a good job of everything. But, as Volkls often do, they feel a little heavy and damp. And for that reason, they didn't really inspire me. They are a perfectly good ski but I found them just a little dull. -Twig
