        Overall

        Really nice ski, I´m really happy with them. They perform nicely in almost every terrain, the only place that you dont want to use them is in the trees, they are really slow there and they dont react as fast as you would like them to.
        They have a nice looking topsheet that no one else would have.
        The only thing that i would change is that i would put more rocker in the ski so it could be more playful.

        Performance

        I really love them since they dont have that big rocker that some skis are coming out with, they have this small early rise that can still float on those deep powder days but then you can carve the grooms like you are bode and the skis are not going to feel floppy at all, even though its icy or soft.

        Design

        I really like the topsheet and i really like the idea since it was created by the french chef Mati Imbert and it has a topsheet with ice creams ands burguers and all kinds of food and some monsters that are almost eating your food.

        Value

        Well we all know that Amplid its an expensive brand and so are most of the Europeans brands, but man, you are paying for a sick ski, that can hold up almost every place in your hill and that no one else in your mountain will have, ive only seen one more in my life and it was from Mathieu Imbert

        Fit

        I fell they a little bit smaller than they actually are, I use the 184s (only size) and I am 5´9 - 5´10 and i can jib with these skis or i can do trees with these skis, and I doesnt feel like they are those huge powder skis.

        Characteristics

        This is the nice thing about the ski that i love. They have this not so big early rise in both tail and tip and the difference come in the flex pattern where the tips are very flexy but the tails are really stiff so you can land all your big cliffs and rip the shit outta your line like its your job.

        Durability

        They hold up super nice, my topsheet its chipping a little bit and ive been skiing these skis for around 30+ days so the chiping is no they´re problem. The bases and the edges get scratched pretty easily but come one, you want to huck cliffs then you will have to touch some rocks.
