      • Review:

        I bought the 2013 model (same as 2014) on sale at my local shop. I have ridden 4 days on them so far, and have seen a lot of terrain and snow types in those 4 days.

        Let my start off with first impressions: the Rocker2's are extremely well made, they feel like a quality product. A quick hand flex revels that these are relatively stiff for a BC powder freestyle ski. You notice this stiffness especially in the tail and under the bindings, the tip is a lot softer, but not floppy like it is on some other pow boards. It's also notable that they feel pretty light, and due to the honeycomb tip sand tails have very low swing-weight.

        Let's go skiing: I rid 3 days at Jackson hole, and saw 12" powder, moguls, icy chop, groomers, cliffs, etc.
        Obviously they are powder skis, and they feel a lot like other big boards (opus, JJ's, volkl 1's) in the soft stuff. The largest difference was how the rocker2's shut off speed if you get in a tight spot. Move your weight back and slide the tails out, and your scrubbing speed. Much easier then the Opus IMO. As a trade off you do loose some switch powder ability due to the narrower tails, but they still go the wrong way pretty well.
        On the harder stuff they preform much better then expected. I found myself leaving the narrower boards behind because they are so fun. they pop and butter off of everything, and due to the stiff tails I felt no issues landing bigger drops.

        The only issues I can think of is the tip flap in crud. They have a lot of rocker, and a softer front, so they aren't ideal for heavy, chopped snow in the afternoon.

        Overall however, best ski I've ridden in the 110-120 class. 8.5/10

        I bought them.
