        Overall

        Buy them. Please. Best skis on the market right now...I haven't skied many others, but just by how amazing these are I find it hard to believe there are any better. Stiff enough to charge through crud and not tip/tail flap all over the place, forgiving enough to allow smears and quick turns, poppy enough to launch you to the moon, stable enough to boost confidence on drops, light enough to spin in the air or move quickly, good-looking enough to attract stares....pretty much, awesomeness pressed into a ski. I will be expanding my on3p quiver based solely on my experiences with this particular pair....that should be enough to convince you to buy ON3P for your next ski.

        Performance

        These skis perform amazing. They are able to pivot and turn around almost on a dime in tight places due to their immense rocker profile and 91 cm running length. They are very stable on drops, don't wash out and make you feel more confident. Great in crud, blast right through it...you will never even know it is there. I feel like crud performance would be much better with the 191 model, but I like my tree skiing too much to add unnecessary length in the trees.

        Design

        I ruv it so much. I got the topsheets/bases changed from the Caylor graphic, which, although it was sick, was not really my style. I got the Billygoat graphics instead, which I love so much. Really amazing art, the mountains/goats/random touches are in my favorite colors and they look amazing. I would recommend this route if you don't like a certain topsheet, just contact Scott before he orders the topsheet and base materials and you could probably get your favorite graphic on your choice of skis. That's pretty cool, you can't ring up K2 and ask them to put the hellbent graphic on obsetheds now can you.



        Value

        I got it at a presale price....I believe it was $400 dollars. Amazing deal....these skis are so well made, designed, and put together. My shop tech commented that he had seen all of next year's surface, armada, line, moment, and a couple other brands at a demo recently, and ON3P was the best constructed/used the best materials out of all the skis he had seen. The price went up this year, and rightfully so, that ski is easily worth the $$$. Get them on presale though, such a legit price for an amazing product.

        Fit

        I got the 181s and I am currently 6 foot, 150 lbs. I like the length for what I do on this ski, which is mostly tight trees, quick turns, smears, and jibbing off of natural terrain. A lot of people think that at my height a 191 is the way to go, and I think if I ever desire a charging-type ski I will pick up a pair of 191 Caylors to add to my on3p quiver.

        Characteristics

        Wow. Caylors are the perfect flex for me. Medium-stiff, still playful but able to charge through crud with ease. The tips are a little softer than everywhere else so that they can more easily rise above the snow, and I guess that would make butters easier if you do them. The tails feel very stable, no washing out or wheelie effect. Great for when you get thrown off balance going fast and want to stand back up and not eat it...very reliable flex. Also, these skis are insanely poppy due to their bamboo core. Absolutely amazing...any little knoll, covered tree stump, dip, whatever, because a little jump as this ski just wants to pop/nollie off of everything.

        Durability

        Great. While I got the skis a little late, we still had a horrible year with only about 150" falling, so there were plenty of trees still left uncovered. Not a scratch in the bases, and the topsheets don't chip, they fray. Sounds weird but its awesome, a little strand will come loose and you can just yank/cut it off, then the topsheets are perfect. Edges/sidewalls/core/bases/topsheets are still in perfect condition although they have been skied 8 times or so.
