YO! Switchblades are $$$. I had the 2012-2013 model and rode them for 1 1/2 seasons. The they are a very soft ski, but not soft enough to hit big jumps. (I ski at park city and constantly hit 30+ foot jumps) Easy to butter on, favorite ski I've ever used. Pm for more questions, im on mobile and im lazy... Check my instagram for some vids @thelaxskier and i have an edit on my ns page.
