I just got it today and was not impressed at all. It was not very informative for you unless you were skiing pow or racing, they never once mentioned the park. For a review on the p3 some testers described it as buttery and they had no idea what that meant and made some stupid ass refernces to butter. And they left out the hottest boots this year. Do not buy.
and it does not suck to compare the big mountain twins to other big mountain skis. why the fuck would I want to compare a pair of Gots to a pair of fujitives I would much rather compare them to a legend. And for those of you complaining about the lack of a twin tip ski review and them only having powder/all mountain/big mountain skis. I have a few words for you: most of the twin tip all mountain skis probably did not make the cut for the all mountain catagory they only listed the top 40% or so of the skis. And the other thing I wanted to say is that skiing magazine is for skiers not people who slide up to a rail hop on slide down the rail and get off with out ever making a turn. haha that should cause some fun.
over all they don't rate them on 'how good they are' like freeskier. they rate their different qualities like how stiff it is how well it floats how well it turns. is it more of a power skis or a quick ski. thats how they rate them They don't just say this ski gets 8 out of ten.
soooo basically Freeze the 2nd? That almost pisses me off more. AOL cuts our magazine because it doesn't sell as much as fucking People magazine despite having rapid and steady increase year after year, only to start a new magazine for the same demographic created by the magazines that originally created Freeze? EFF that!
haha yeah, i got the magazine todya in the mail also, i was not veyr impressed at all, all POW and racing stuff, they had some of the scracthes, and a few line skis in there, and the P3, but other than that it was not worth my time.
Does no one else think that buyers guides are now becoming obsolete. I mean by the time it is printed and sent out it takes a couple of months, I think. If someone wants a review or details of any aspect of skiing they can just come on here or any other site and get much more detailed information. I'd rather see more interviews and more about the cultural aspects of skiing than ?/10 marks for thousands of skis I have no interest in.
this is true, there are soo many skis out there....there is something for everybody. Thin skis for bumps, recreational cavers, entry model twin tips. It all depends on what you are into, how long you've been skiing, your skill level, height, weight.....etc.
I think they should rate things like flex, weight etc. on a numerical type system(or at least just provide all the specs about the skis). Sure, everybody is different, but that doesn't cnhange the raw data about a ski. Having a simple one number rating on how good overall you think a ski performs tells me nothing, as that is going to change with everyone who rides the ski.
