The Pettitor, aka the brand spankinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ new pro model of one of the best skiers in the world, Sean Pettit, kicks as much ass on the hill as Seany does.
At 120mm under foot, the Pettitor acts as somewhat of a comfortable in between of the K2 Hellbent and Seth Morrison Pro Model of old (before it was revamped into this year's Side Seth), so it's perfect for someone who is looking for a little bit more ka-boom than the latter but a little less girth (and more versatility) than the former.
Like most rockered skis of this nature, the Pettitor gives you that giggle-inducing schmeary and surf-like feeling in the pow, and plows through crud like a running back tears through an offensive line, but it also skis very well on the groomed, which is one of the most important things for me in a rockered ski, because a versatile rockered ski is a hell of a lot better and more desirable for me than one that isn't.
Flex-wise, it's perfect for my style of skiing, with a serious dose of stiffness under foot and a slightly softer tip and tail, along with a feather-like swing weight to make the ski's overall maneuverability and playfulness something you have to ski to believe.
