        Overall

        Overall, a great ski for all mountain, as long as you don't ski much park.

        Performance

        I have ridden these in all conditions. They're great for powder and wider trees. They carve surprisingly well on groomers for such a wide ski. Very stable at high speeds. I've had no chattering or slipping out. I find them a bit hard to handle when it's really icy or if I have to make tight turns, like in some trees. And I find them too heavy to do much on in the park.

        Design

        I like the graphics, they're different.
        They are too heavy for park, but that's not what they are designed for anyways.

        I like the dimensions and the float they give in deep pow.


        Value

        I think they're pretty expensive...

        Characteristics

        I'd say on the stiffer side, at least for me, as a lighter skier. But they feel nice and solid for getting through crud. Theyre a little softer in the tip and tail too.

        Durability

        So far I have had no problems whatsoever. Liberty seems to have solved thier durability issues, at least as far as I can tell. (Yes I had a pair of the older skis that broke).
        Either way, if there were problems, they have a 3 year warranty.

        The bases and edges seem very strong. I have hit several rocks with no damage other than slight scratches.

        The topsheet is chipping off at the edges, but this is to be expected.
