        Overall

        Overall, one of my favorite powder skis.  the waterski tip is the best and worst thing about this ski.  When skiing forword is ploughs through the powder like its nothing.  Unfortunately when skiing switch it catches very easily and gets in the way.  But a good buy for anyone who wants a stiff big mountain board

        Performance

        This was one of the best powder skis i have ever skied one.  The 160mm waterski tip just drives through the deep pow like its air.  the 110mm waist keep you floating ontop of any kind of snow the mountain throws at you.  I skied both heavy west coast snow and champagne interior snow in Chile on these and had no troubles.

        Design

        The 160mm waterski shaped tip is the best feature of this ski.  the pointed tip cuts through the powder soo well.  If your into skiing switch in pow don't get this ski cause of the regular camber and the waterski tip is hard to deal with switch.  The graphics on this ski is badass deff some of the coolest graphics i have ever seen on a ski, all of Icelantic's skis have dope graphics

        Value

        Deff a good value for these skis if your into a regular camber, stiff, big mountain charging machine like the Armada ANT, but a fraction of the price.

        Fit

        I'm 6'2", 160 lbs and these skis at 186cm fit me perfectly these skis are better the bigger they are

        Characteristics

        For a big mountain shred stick its got a bit of flex.  I was buttering off knuckles and cornices with these and didnt have a problem.  I did have to put a lot more effort into buttering but still possible.  Its still stiff enough to stomp big cliffs and charge huge faces at high speed.

        Durability

        I skied these things everyday for 5 weeks in Chile; powder, big mountain, park, rails, urban features and they are still going strong.  the top sheet is a little chipped but that happens with all skis
