Solid park ski that lasted me 4 years before I snapped the tail on a rail. The break wasn't even that bad and I was able to use the ski for the rest of the season (about 10 trips). Really solid ski that's great for riding switch anywhere.
These are a very good ski for the price. I personally liked them a lot, other than the extruded bases line puts on them, the extruded bases make them super slow and not everyone has time to wax everyday. really light skis. fun for butter, jumps, rails, pretty much anything. i recommend them for the price.
I good, light ski for ripping up the mountain in the park and groomers, but I would have liked more durability.
Performance wise, this ski was awesome. Perfect on rails and jumps all year until they broke
I wouldn't have minded my skis to be center mounted but the slightly back mounting was fine in the park all year
For about $300 it was definitely worth the value but don't expect to use these skis for more than one season...
Good flex, was the perfect flex for a park/all mountain ski. Flexible enough for butters, but stiff enough for jumps, bumps, carving
Durability wise, these skis did not hold up so well. Immediately huge chunks started missing from the sidewalls and halfway through the season the tip completely separated from the base. After bring it to my shop to be glued back together, the tail completely snapped a month or two later after falling on a jump.
If your just starting in the park this is for you. At this price you cant go wrong.
It is a price-point/beginner ski so with that in mind its great! This is my 1st year taking park seriously and Its holding up very well, some rust on the edges but thats my fault. My friend got the AfterBangs and they're pretty beat up and he dosent hit that many things. He only hits boxes and very small jumps. But yet his skis are chipped like crazy and his bases are super slow.
For me, the graphics are soo much brighter in person and the best graphics that line came out with IMO.
Only thing I would change is that i would make it symmetrical because its very close to being one,it might as well be one
Its a price point ski. You cant go wrong with the value.
I got a 167 and im 5'6
I think i should've went for a size higher if i were to mount them in the center but i have them in the recommended mounting spot for all mountain and i love it!
This ski one of those playful,forgiving soft park ski, very buttery. But i would recommend you stay off some of the larger jumps(70 feet or more)
GREAT! some de-lamination but that happens to everyone's skis.
The mastermind is a good entry level park/ all mountain ski. It will do ok in powder but since it is meant for park, don't use it unless you have to. Like I said, if you are a super aggressive skier, go another route. They are starting to wear pretty bad.
It is a pretty good ski. Preforms well. It's a good entry level park ski, but Truthfully if you are super aggressive I would go another route
I don't particularly care about design. It's all about performance.
I think they were a pretty good deal.
I got the 167, which is good for park, but since this is the only ski I own for the moment, a larger size would be nice for pow.
The master ind is a BUTTERY ski. It's extremely flexy throughout
I've been skiing them all season and they are pretty beat...... but since I use them all over the mountain I expected them to be a little beat. Some top sheet damage. Nothing too major
