        Overall

        The ski performed just like it was supposed to. They like to go really fast through some choppy crap. However, Due to the amount of core shots i put in the base, and in part because of what i consider to be an excessive amount of "softening" throughout the ski, and especially in the tip, I can't give this ski 10/10.

        Performance

        These skis worked just as they were meant to. Relatively stiff brand new, They charge through chop and crud no problem. After around 80 full days, however, they were noticeably softer and it definitely had an effect on the performance (a mild effect, and what else can you expect from a ski after that many days?) In powder (the thing they aren't really made for) they dive of course, but they work great if you like to sink to the bottom and really kick up the shit haha.

        Design

        The look is dark and scary... So i liked it a lot. The "feel" was great at first, but slowly got worse as the ski got broken in.

        Value

        I paid around 400 for the ski. I used the living crap out of them and definitely got my moneys worth. I wouldn't buy them at full price, but it's easy to find a good deal online.

        Fit

        187 was a great size for me at 5'10". By the end of the season I felt like i could have used the NGP's instead, depends on your ability really.

        Characteristics

        The ski has a pretty even, but relatively stiff flex. Slightly softer (but not "soft") in the tip, and stiffer in the tail.

        Durability

        With as little snow as we had this year, I was definitely a little harder on my skis than normal. As with any ski, the topsheet chips (definitely not "bombproof") but i couldn't care less about that. I have a knack for landing on rocks, but I still feel that it was a little too easy to put a core shot or 5 in these skis. They're still in good enough condition for at least 1 more year (i hope). Also, The edges held up pretty well, no cracks, blowouts etc.
