ExoticSkisJust finished a pretty thorough review of the 2015-2016 Bodrums HERE:
WIll also post in the review forum database as well..
The guys at Revision have put out a serious jib-style, stiff-ish romp-and-stomp freeride ski with a 107 waist and large radius meant to sustain medium to high speeds through mixed surface conditions with stable, non-buckling integrity. Their product description is pretty darn accurate. The only downsides we identified were a skittery, slick feel on hardpack in stock tune (until we re-ground the bases which came through a little high...then it got better, but never really impressive), and a big of sluggishness in tightest situations due to the relatively straight nature of this model's shaping. Tons of pop and energy, begging to be skied hard and works well when "in" snow, delivering a spirited ride and confidence-inspiring tracking across cruddy conditions. The harder you ski it, the more you get back, and the quicker it gets. Strong, reliable landing platform. Excellent power-handling and a very high speed limit. Hardpack carving is not its strong point, while storm conditions and cut-up new snow are fun and rowdy. For the bargain-price of $600 retail, the Bodrums are a great deal if you like a jib-oriented, all-terrain ski with a bias toward 3-D surfaces and don't need groomer-trenching behavior. Cool, understated graphics and plenty of floatation along the entire chassis.
ExoticSkisNot really hooky at all...quick in 3D snow, a bit loose on harder surfaces.
Hope this helps....
Mount point is definitely forward...jib-style...higher speed runs, you want them mounted back a bit...
