4FRNT Devastator thoughts ??
been looking at this ski for a while! What’s everyone think about it? I’m looking for a fun new all mountain/powder ski!
I've had a pair for a couple seasons, they shred super hard. Mad heavy so they're a pain if you're doing any hiking but they'll plow through any kind of snow, and they're actually pretty maneuverable in trees and stuff.
I bought mine from a guy who busted a section of edge+sidewall landing on a rock and did my best to repair them; when you factor in the rocker that makes them pretty sketchy on hardpack and ice, but if you take care of them devastators should hold their own in pretty much all conditions.
One other thing to note is the rocker, it's not super crazy but it goes all the way through so if you've ridden mostly race and carving skis like I had before I got mine, it'll take a lil adjustment. Worth it though.
For a fully rockered ski they can't float for shit. Disappointing fresh snow performance but man are they fun in afternoon chop/packed snow as well as in the park. I'd call them an all mountain/park ski, not an all mountain/pow ski.
