        Overall

        Excellent ski, SUPER fun, great to ski all over the place, a park slayer, and really quite durable. I recommend this ski to pretty much anyone looking for a really fun park ski that still skis really well and can handle quite a bit of abuse.

        Performance

        Excellent performance. Perfect for park skiing, soft and buttery when you want to ski rails or do knuckle tricks, but still stable enough to play on jumps. Fairly lightweight, and easy to spin around (low swing-weight). Outside the park, they still preform quite well, I really enjoy bombing around on groomers with them, and even playing a bit in the bumps. They do handle pretty well in some powder, under 12 inches is fine...more than that and they get swallowed up pretty easily.

        Design

        The graphic is pretty sweet, it even features a Jackalope. The base graphic is also awesome, and makes the snow glow underneath you.

        Value

        At $450 it's a fairly medium priced park ski, there are certainly higher priced park skis out there, but they're certainly not the cheapest skis out there either. I think they're quite an excellent value however, well worth the money, super fun to ski.

        Fit

        My 169cm skis actually measure to 173cm - take into consideration when purchasing, but also consider because of the rocker and it's symmetrical shape it'll ski a bit shorter.

        Characteristics

        Medium-Soft flex. The ski feels soft and buttery because of the rocker, yet stable because of the 90mm waist.

        Durability

        I put my skis through a TON of abuse (I've never made it a season on just one pair). I'm a terrain park digger, and part of my job is testing features, which means TONS of rails and what-not. They've held up pretty well (I am on my second pair this season, but like I said, that's nothing out of the ordinary, and honestly the first pair is still ridable, they're just pretty beat). The bases are pretty much untouched (some very minor scratches, but nothing too bad), I do wax them fairly regularly though. The topsheet is alright, normal scratches and what-not. The edges on my first pair were the problem, I simply wore them out, a few edge cracks, but none of them ripped out, just wore down (but like I said, tons of rails...probably 5 hours a day 5 days a week at a minimum).
