The 3.0 is a ski I've always thoroughly enjoyed testing. It's definitely improved over its gradual evolution and now carves excellently. The balsa/flax core provides enough stiffness for me to charge (5'9 and 140lbs) all the while being poppy, butterable and noticeably light in the air. Low camber means they are happy to go sideways adding to the fun of skiing them. For an all mountain jib option (no rails) I'd definitely say these are definitely the best ski in the Faction line because the asymmetrical shape means they carve significantly better than the symmetrical 2.0. - Twig
