      • Reviewed Ski Size: 179 (129-112-120) Review:

        The 4FRNT Hoji continues to be my favorite full rocker Big Mountain ski. It's surfy, charging, and absolutely a well rounded ski. At 112 underfoot, it's capable of being a powder ski, but it's shape truly shines on big lines that require you to utilize the rocker profile. These skis were tested at Bridger Bowl, Big Sky, and Squaw Valley on hardpack snow, and on powder days. They have Tyrollia Attack 13's mounted on them.

        From 4FRNT:
        "To us, however, this ski represents pain and gain; frigid, early mornings, half-listening to NPR on the way to a dawn patrol tour before work, sharing the same thermos of whatever hot beverage somebody brought. This ski represents sweaty skin tracks and windy ridges. Wherever you go the HOJI will get you to the bottom confidently and in the best style."

        My thoughts:
        If you want a ski that charges, or a wide waist touring ski, then the Hoji is an excellent option. With a full rocker profile, this is NOT the ski for someone who enjoys camber, or is looking for a true quiver killer. They handle every aspect of skiing well. On groomers I was surprised to find myself laying the entire ski on edge, and not feeling like the turn radius was hindering. In narrow chutes, they feel stable enough to point and ski straight. They float in fresh snow, and crush corn/choppy packed powder. They have some pop, but don't expect them to rock your world- if you want a poppy ski look elsewhere.

        Pros:
        Solid full rocker ski
        Responsive, can ski anything
        Smears so well!

        Cons:
        If you don't have them mounted with a tech binding, they can be a little heavy
        No camber
        Large jump in lengths
