        Overall

        Overall these skis are an easy to use fun ski for the
        beginner/intermediate powder skier, they are not the quickest and on the
        188s, I found I was wanting more ski ski (bear in mind I'm only 5'9").
        They are responsive and pivoty (on groomers carving is a bit more work than with other powder skis), I think they would be a good tree-skiing
        sk (due to pivotyness), if you're looking to charge big lines go with the super7s

        Performance

        About Me/Summary: - 5'10", 80kgs, decent level powder
        skier, currently on 191 ON3P Caylors, wanting to try the S7s as I had
        heard so much about them. Tested them up at whistler, good range of
        condition bit of pow, bit crud,heavy, ice a good mixture for 'demoing'
        I got a chance to demo these today up at whistler. I managed
        to ski them in a got variety of conditions, powder,deep concrete,
        Crud,Slush,Groomers and Ice. In the powder they were great they were so
        responsive and easy to use, of sketchy situations was no trouble for the
        S7s and I had total confidence they would do what they wanted on my
        feet they felt light and manoeuvrable, however landing cliffs etc they
        didn't feel as stable as I would have wanted them to be. After a couple
        of powder runs I ran into some deeper snow that was heavy and a
        nightmare to ski, with the s7 no problem at all, again very confidence
        inspiring. Once I took theses out into the cut up crud these felt shakey
        at speed and didn't bust through it as well as I thought they
        would/should have and do not what ever you do take these anywhere near
        moguls. However in slushy snow they were no trouble at all and were an
        easy ride. On groomers there is a little bit of chatter but not a
        terrible amount, I didn't really feel like I could rail groomers carving
        was an issue on theses where as my ON3P caylors which are wider have a
        much better on piste ability.

        Overall these skis are an easy to use fun ski for the
        beginner/intermediate powder skier, they are not the quickest and on the
        188s, I found I was wanting more ski ski (bear in mind I'm only 5'9").
        THey are responsive and pivoty, I think they would be a good tree-skiing
        ski, if you're looking to charge big lines go with the super7s

        Durability

        Considering these have been up at whistler on demo since mid november they seemed to be holding up well, a little scuffing around the tip and tail, minimal chipping,and only 3 base scratches
