        Purchased these as abit of an impulse wanting to try a softer ski.

        These skis are a park ski through and through. they're soft flex pattern makes them super easy to get into butter/manuals and generally jib around. They held up well on rails and thanks to the jib rocker i rarely got hooked up on swaps. I didnt have the opportunity to hit any medium or big jumps on these however i feel a ski like this for a guy of my size (6'2 190lbs) would be a little too soft for anything sizeable. i get the feeling any backseat landings would easily result in washing out.

        these skis can handle a few inches of fresh snow without getting to bogged down due to 90mm waist and the hint of tip and tail rocker. At the end of the day chances are with them being a symmetrical ski they'll be mounted at centre so riding pow isnt really ever going to be where these skis shine.

        On piste they are happy to cruise the easy slops if you're getting sideways on your turns. However, if you're really pushing your carves these have the tendency to wash out, they're cant quite hold an edge like other park skis out there can. I also noticed a fair bit of chatter when you decide to let go and straight line something, inevitable with a skis this soft but slightly off putting none the less.

        my biggest problem here lies with the bases. They seem unable to hold wax for more than a few days skiing. Maybe i have been spoilt as all skis i've owned before this have has sintered bases but these dry up super quick. it means you end up waxing them incredibly regularly and spening lot of money and time.

        Overall they're fine for they are; a soft, symmetrical park ski. The domains would probably suit an east coast park guy who wants a softer flex to get a little more creative.

        I have loved this ski so much. I'm almost certain I'll be buying them again. They're super buttery for just messing around in the park and around the hill. And they hold up decently on the size jumps we have here in Minnesota. The only thing I don't like about them is that they're made in china, just because of the notion that everything made there is junk. So the only thing I don't like about his ski is irrelevant because the domains have been super durable for me so far! With these skis, you can have fun on any hill with snow. Highly recommend them.
