        Overall

        The Crop Duster is a perfect name for this ski, it loves to fly low and leave a dusty cloud behind you.

        This ski is with no question a powder specific ski. Nice and fat with flat under foot and long rise tip. I found with the lack of abrupt turn up in the tip that it seems to take a little longer that some skis to get the ski floating from a dead stop, but once you gain nay speed at all it planes up like a dream! This ski loves the deep stuff, and lays awesome flowly turns with a very surf like feel. The longer soft tip stays afloat easy, while underfoot and tail are a little stiffer and offer great responsiveness and stability. They fly and land well over rollers at speed, but could be a bit stiffer of bigger drops. These skis love anything soft, deep fresh tracks or chopped up powder.

        The shape and softness does leave a little to be desired if you hit heavy debris, bumps or a rutted packed out traverse, but it is tolerable in the name of getting you to where they really shine. Though this is a ski that seems like the sweetspot will be a bit different for everyone, so this may change with a bit more usage as well.

        Construction is solid and they take abuse very well. A few hits on the base have left nothing but small drag marks, and the top sheet still looks great with very little chipping or scratching. I can see these lasting for a while!

        For my first exposure to a pair of Epic Planks, I am very impressed and looking forward to see more of what they put out!
