        Overall

        I'd been wanting to try out a pair of Coreupt's for a few years now, so I could see (and ski) for myself if their products lived up to the hype of their A+ roster of athletes. So being that I live in BC and love to get into the deep stuff, along with the fact that it was designed by Richard Permin (who's an absolute boss!)...I chose the Born To Drop.

        The Born To Drop is a very unique ski, both in the look and feel of it. The tip gets wider and wider until the very end, at which point it tapers to almost a point, and it has without question more rocker than any other ski I've tried...and it works! These bad boys float through the deepest of the deep with easy and agility, and the fact that it's also one of the lighter skis I've skied made me feel like I was surfing, which is a feeling I've only experienced with the old Line EP Pros.

        The perfect amount of stiffness under the foot and in the tail (along with a slight amount of rocker) helped me stay on top of things as opposed to riding backseat, and although I didn't find it to be as quick edge-to-edge as other skis around the 125mm in the waist range, the fact that I ski it in a 179cm length makes it easy to maneuver.

        Be aware though: this ski is for deep pow and deep pow only, and I wouldn't recommend them for skiing groomers, ice, park or pipe. It's the type of ski that you bust out for those big days, and when you grab them off your ski rack the morning after a fresh dump, you'll be glad you had them waiting in the wings.
