I really think that this ski was a great experence on the snow and i will probly buy this ski in the future. It is a truly great ski for someone who wants to hit rails all day and night.
I was suprised on how this product preformed. They were a little better then the 08's and did nasty work when jibbing. The only downside to these if you were to get the 172's would be taking them off huge kickers. They spin so quick that it is a little too easy to loose balance in air with a shorter size. Otherwise these are one hell of a rail and small kicker ski.
The feel of this product is like most others. The look on the other hand was a litle different than average but quite interesting to ride with.
I think that the ski itself could be a little lower in price but not a bad but at all for anyone who wants to be a great jibber or atleast look like one. You are puting your money into a ski that will help you becone a better skier in general and is a great buy.
I thought I would tone it doun a little going for the 172's and they are amazing. Normally a tall person like myself would take some 179's or 181's but these were the perfect size for quick spins anywhere.
The new flex pattern isn't bad at all but I prefer the 08 pattern myself.
These skies, like all of my other's, I put through a long test of hours of jibbing and everything you could think of. I like to run my skies down to realy test the companies products before I buy more from them and I must say that fisher did a very good job with this one. These have been through a lot of abuse and have held up through the long run.
