Fun ski. My pair lasted me for quite a few seasons and helped me progress my skiing. The thing about wood skis tho is they soak up water from slushy snow like a sponge then leave the ski heavy and damp as cooked spaghetti. The 2012 and older models are my favourite. I think once LINE started building them with a top sheet the skis became stiffer and less durable. I still love those old things tho.
