        *I demoed them for two days do not own*

        Info about me. 5'11 220lbs. level 3 skier. Grew up on the ice coast just moved out to utah specifically brighton.

        Conditions. 18" of powder and tracked out powder. Groomed surface when not in the powder.

        Super fun ski that could make any turn you wanted. You could turn on a dime at any speed and then they felt fine making long gs turns. They were a blast in the trees with the ability to turn so quick even at slow speed. The double helix gave me plenty of floatation and had enough stability to support me in back seat landings.

        On hard pack liberty claims the ski can still rail but I found it to be a over exaggeration. If you keep the ski flat you are going to get the feeling you have ice skates under your feet as a running surface. I pretty much try to stay on edge as much as possible to avoid the ice skate feeling. Once you are on edge on hard pack they do hold their own. Hard pack is not where this ski should be on anyway.

        I would recommend this ski for powder and touring(extremely light ski)

        These skis are awesome. I have about two weeks of skiing Alta and park city in shit conditions on them. These things rip in all conditions. From setting an edge on the groomers to trying to sweep around rocks these skis are fun and easy to control. Although they are pretty fat they still preform well in all conditions. On the one pow day I had they had awesome float and great maneuverability. They are even fun in the park. They slide rails and boxes just like my LTE's, and are also fun on the jumps. Furthermore the edges must be made of diamond because i have blown through some rocks and hit more than enough rails on them to crack any edge. There is only minor damage. All around awesome fun ski. Unless I am skiing park they are still my go to ski, even here in the midwest.
