        Overall

        Seems like a pretty good ski at first but don't be fooled.  They are poorly constructed and the company WILL screw you when trying to warranty.  I exchanged emails with Eric Boone himself who told me to send pictures of the damage.  After sending him these pictures I never recieved another email.  Joke of a company, do not support Boone.

        Performance

        When these skis are brand new they perform very well and are a very fun park ski.  I didnt take them on any terrain outside of the park (Ohio) but I would bet they could hold up on all mountain skiing.

        Value

        Complete rip off.  Do not buy these skis unless you want to take a gamble on something that will probably break.

        Fit

        I got them 180cm long and 92.5mm underfoot.  Center mounted the ski and though the size was perfect for me (6' tall, 160-170lbs)

        Characteristics

        Very flexible, decent pop.  I thought the flex pattern was very good for skiing park, specifically jibs although they skied decently on medium to large jumps as well.

        Durability

        Just awful.  I've grown accustomed to breaking skis but these take the cake as far as falling apart.  Both pictures that I posted with this review are the result of one week of skiing.  The edge on one of the tails started pulling out literally within 5 hours of skiing on the first day I had them.  The core on the other tail ended up splitting so badly (2nd picture) that they were unusable after a week.

        Overall

        Fun playful ski and awesome if you can mount up a new pair every week
        Good for urban and just kinda beating up

        If you want a ski that's going to hold up to the beating of park skiing, do not get these unless you can get them new for 100 or less

        My rating would be a lot higher if these things were more durable because they are a fun ski...but the fact that they start falling part in 1-2 weeks turned me off greatly....sorry boone 5 from me

        Performance

        A fun ski for messing around, not recommended for competition use. Performed well for me until about a week or two in on each pair I got. The tips quickly blow out, whether you're hitting jumps, rails, or small boxes...Regardless of what the website says, the bases are very cheap material. Compared to a base like a fischer or rossignol, it's like comparing asphalt to playdoe...My friends found it amusing that they could effortlessly put gouges in the bases with their fingernails...Not to mention they are one of the slowest bases I've skied on.

        Design

        Nice and light because of the bamboo core...most simple sandwich construction, nothing special. When held up to something like an armada Thall, these definitely are not the desired ski...

        Value

        yes and no, the 99 bucks seemed awesome before I realized I'd pay more in shipping costs for how many times I had to warranty them...can't beat the price if you're looking for a rail/urban ski

        Fit

        6'0 170lbs 180cm 92mm waist was great

        Characteristics

        Fun flex for messing around, suprisingly stiff enough for big jumps, soft enough to play on

        Durability

        pros Never had a pair snap, nor damaged a sidewall or side edge
        Never lost pop, bamboo stayed snappy, then again never got the opportunity to use a pair more than a few weeks

        cons
        Never had the tips not blowout in less than 2 weeks..for example, I recieved a new pair and first day out took them through aspens 3 pack jump line ~30, 50, 60...felt good after landing sweet spot on every jump for the first two runs until I realized that, yes, after two runs, my tips had already blown out..my roomates took 4 runs.
        typically after the tips blow out they start delamming rather fast
        Once I had duck tape on all 4 tips they were great from there!

        Like I said before, cheapest bases I've ever used, hold wax very poorly and can be gouged with a fingernail, a tiny burr in a rail will destroy these

        Also I guess this is a personal opinion, but when I open a fresh pair of skis out of the wrapper, I like to take them out and lay down some fat carves before I detune them..I also like to carve off jumps...first fat turn I tried to lay on these I washed out and ate shit...can easily slide rails with these fresh out of the wrapper

        Overall

        anyone who wants a great ski and is really broke head over to d structure and there are only a couple pairs left for this years model.  so if you can grab a pair now for next year. 

        Performance

        this product was great when i got out onto the hill.  right away i felt a huge differents from my old line invaders to these boons.  way stiffer which i like for the jumps and super poppy for rails and they butter really really nicely. 

        Design

        the look is awsome.  like i said before i was soo stoked when i looked at this product.  the only complaint would be that they could have used a higher quality image on the top of the ski, it is a bit blurry on the edges but not many people notice that.  the base colour of the skis is great as well.  i really like the boone logo near the tail of the ski on the base.

        Value

        steal of a deal for shure.  pcicked em up at d structure for $200. and a free t shirt

        Fit

        i am only twleve years old and i am 5'6" and i bought the 165cm magic stckz and i think they are great.  they go just past my forehead and are just the perfect size.

        Characteristics

        Great ski right out of the box.  when i opened the box up from d structure, i nearly fell down.  mind blowing colours and graphics and all get at my mountain is about how cool and colourful they are.

        Durability

        edges are stil holding in after trying numerous times learning how to 450 on good for jibbing in the backyard on the steel rail.  minor chips on my topsheet but  nothing serious.

        Overall

        Overall this is a quality all-mountain ski.   There are other skis that I would recommend if you were looking for a specific powder or park ride, but if you want one to kill 'em all, then this is right up your alley. 
        The turning pattern of the ski is on the straight side of things, and they're certainly stiff, so expect this to be more of a charging ski than something to be making tight turns. 

        It can certainly be frightening to purchase a pair of skis from a brand new company, but Boone has managed an offering that shows they've got the chops to succeed in the ski manufacturing world. 



        Performance

        The Magic Sticks really do perform
        best when ridden in their natural environment. They’re a little bit on the
        stiff side but definitely make up for it with their bamboo core.  These are poppy and light enough that they will dance when you need to shred the park, but stable enough to hit the high speeds.

        Design

        Being a relatively new ski company, I didn’t really know
        what to expect from Boone, but I certainly was pleasently surprised.  Ever since I’ve had the Magic Sticks I keep getting
        complements on how colourful the base graphics are.  :)

        Durability

        These skis completely exploded after one season.

        Overall

        Love 'em.  The other graphic packages on BOONE skis - the superfreak and twins are sick too.

        Performance

        Really sick performance.  Very poppy and the flex pattern is great.  Also very durable (long lasting) as well as stable at higher speeds.

        Design

        Sickest most unique graphics I've seen.

        Value

        Lowest cost INDE ski in small batch construction on the market.

        Fit

        I ski the 180 with 93mm underfoot and it is plenty of ski for me and I'm 5'11" and 190 lbs.

        Characteristics

        Bamboo Core gives the ski a very predictable flex pattern - soft enough for urban but not so soft its chattering at high speeds.

        Durability

        Hasn't broken yet.
