        This is my second season on these skis and they have been great! I am small (5'7") but ride a 179, I wanted a ski that I could charge hard on. I was coming from a 169 Hellbent and wanted a ski that would be better for everyday use. For me, 120mm underfoot is ideal, I ski mostly backcountry and powder so they are great for that and you can still use them in the hard pack. This season especially has been a real test for the ski, we haven't gotten much snow here in the PNW and so I have been stuck to warm or icey snow. They are stable when on the hard pack, I just got back from a trip to Canada and was skiing mostly park which is fun because they are on the softer side of flex but also get a fairly good pop. I would highly suggest this ski for anyone who likes a wider ski that can handle all mountain terrain.

        I have Marker Jester Pros so the only draw back I have found is that they are a bit heavy but as long as you choose a size you are comfortable with then find a binding that works for you. I have a friend who is taller (6'1") and rides the same size (179) but with Look Pivot 14's so they are noticeably lighter and he loves them just as much. This shows the range of the ski and its all about how you like to ski them.

        Lastly I have mine with a true center mount which has worked very well for me, I would suggest a few mm back or if you like a more even ski center mount works well too.

        Over all the skis have been very sold I can ski every day with them and not feel like there too big. I have skied over rocks, rails and parking lots with no edge damage. I did get a big gash this year when I hit a rock that I had to get fixed but overall I think they have been a solid ski that can take a beating.

        Overall awesome ski. I true center mounted them for a season and they were a bit hard to float because the tails couldnt sink into the pow so you had to lean back a bit. I suggest having them 2.5 back from true center (I think thats 5 on the little scale they have). The ski is superSUPER PLAYFUL. You watch the films and videos of Seany P absolutely having a blast, laughing and playing and thats what the ski is but incorporated into that is the ski's ability to fucking stomp. It charges pow and steeps, bounces through crud, and rips the park. If you want a buttery pow ski thats fun on anyday, the pettitor is the one.
