        Overall

        so far i'm very impressed with these skis. I've never skied on boards from a small manufacturer like HIGH SOCIETY, but i can tell you that these things are as good as any ski i've ever clicked into. If you get a chance to demo a pair, Give em a go. I think you'll be stoked at how well they ski.

        Performance

        What an awesome ski. Conditions have not started out too great here in CO, but i've been having a fantastic time riding these boards. Maybe the quickest and most consistent short turning park ski i've ever been on. They rip in the bumps, are super stable switch, and have excellent edge hold. I'm mostly impressed with how the transition from medium to short turns and butter back and forth from switch to regular effortlessly. I've got these mounted pretty close to center.

        Design

        Graphics are super cool. light blue, black and white.

        Value

        excellent

        Fit

        178 is the only size they make, but i usually ski 180,181 and i didn't notice that the couple of cm's made any difference

        Characteristics

        semi soft but very lively and quick edge to edge

        Durability

        i've been putting a beating on these things and they are taking it like a champ. Topsheets look real good, with minimal wear and chipping, I've def hit some rocks in these tough early season conditions and the bases seem tough as nails. A few scratches but no core shots and edges def are holding up to the abuse.
