        Overall

        Love them I would give a ten if they were better at high speeds but you can't ask for everything. Sick don't have the want to upgrade I am very happy with the big GUNS!

        Performance

        This product is a great performer it is a great all mountian ski it is wide for pow but it does not give up quickness and agility. It is great for stomping hucks and tricks in the park. It can sometimes chatter at very high speeds but other wise is solid.

        Design

        It is a plain but good design I like it because they are a blueish color and I like blue. Besides that i could really care less I don't buy skis on looks but it is a bonus if they look good.

        Value

        I got them used 1 year with bindings for $350 which was a steal since they were in sweet condition.

        Fit

        I have 174's and it is a great fit for me I am 6' I would like to see if I could handel the 180 length but the 74's are sick.

        Characteristics

        The flex on the ski is pretty much in the middle it does great in the bumps is very quick to menuver but can get slightly chattery on fast groomers.

        Durability

        They seem to have held up good besides when I ski over a rock but that's my fault.

        Overall

        i think this is overall a very good ski.if your charging in the powder this is the ski for you.

        Performance

        the guns are a good all around ski although i think they performe the best in powder,trees,and bc booters.

        Design

        i really like the side cut and the over all shape of the ski.i like the simple graphics but some people might not like that.

        Value

        i think its a pretty good prise for the ski.

        Characteristics

        i think it has a pretty even flex pattern.it is a average flexy ski which i like.

        Durability

        they have held up great for me.I have had no problems so far.the top sheet is great because it does not chip easy,infact mine have no chips in them.

        Overall

        Great ski - I would prefer a wood core, but real close to perfect. I wouldn't want them as my only skis because they are a little too wide and soft for excessive skiing on hardpack. If you want something to really perform in the powder, these are your tools!

        Performance

        Performs excellent on most all terrain. Real powder hounds, this skis crave the backcounty chutes, but will give equal satisfaction on the groomers.

        Design

        Twin Tip! perfect for stomping landings in the POW. 90mm waist gives plenty of flotation - unless you weigh 250 there is no need for a ski with a 110mm waist.

        Value

        I bought them when they first cam out and spent 600 on just the skis. A little pricy, but worth it. They are essentially the same as the pocket rockets so don't be shy about buying last years model if your short on cash.

        Characteristics

        Nice - the recommended binging location is slightly more forward than is usual and this gives a better flex to the tail. THe soft flex is perfect for powder, but not too noodley on hardpack either. Wouldn't recommend for you East Coasters skiing on frozen granular.

        Durability

        No problems. I have them mounted with Freeride AT bindingas and use them almost exclusively off-piste. I've put a couple core shots in them skiing through the trees, but they fixed up nice.
