        I have skied on these for about 3 weeks and they are awesome. Durability is unreal, I have crushed rocks and barely any scratches. Flat camber under foot is super smeary and fun. This ski is my daily driver and it gets more fun every day. Super light but very stable in chunder at high speeds. It is hard to not stomp cliffs with these. Great in pow, does not shine on hardpack, but on any soft snow it rules. Mounted them at the candide X and that has been fun. topsheets seem bomber. This ski would make a sick BC setup. Super pleased with the quality craftsmanship Faction put into this beast! New favorite ski!!!!

        Lots of fun! I've been a fan of no camber ever since I got my first pair of HellBents five years ago. These are a load of fun. Stiff, but still playful. Hold a good edge and ride fairly well though, not gonna be chattering like some skis that touch the snow solely under the foot. Fun in the park, but definitely not a park oriented ski. Great off backcountry kickers. This ski is solid for backcountry or hammering all over the mountain (obviously with a freestlye mindset) on days where there is any fresh snow. Just not too fun on overly hard days (but I must say holds its own compared to other skis without camber I've ridden on hard days which tend to not ride well on hard days)

        Faction gets an A+ on this one
