It's always fun trying out a new pair of skis you know absolutely nothing about and going in with no expectations. Being on the East Coast, conditions are generally hardpack, or packed freshies, so a great all mountain killer is necessary for the majority of days. A ski that is responsive, holds and edge but still poppy and fun is key.
First impressions out of the box were positive. The weight is less than expected for a small run, full wood all mountain ski. Construction is top notch, you can tell they put care into what they produce. Every detail from quality base material, to the extra think edges, and even the smooth edges of the top sheet show they have durability in mind. Mounted them up with my standard setup, Binding Freedom inserts supporting STH 16 bindings. Having only one mount marker, I decided to mount at recommended, which seems fairly centered. Interested to see what the actual sidecut is on these, since it's not listed.
The first day out on the Tomorrows was on groomed in fresh over that classic hardpack. It took a run to find the sweet spot on weighting these in turns. Found that too far forward or back caused some hooking and one ski would try to take off from the other. After a little getting used to they were a ton of fun. Found I could really lay into them and they do inspire confidence in the turns. They cut through the hardpack and chop with little complaint. Really like the soft tip coupled with the stiff underfoot. They are also quite playful, very happy being loaded and popping off rollers and lips. Swing weight is low and the symmetric shape makes them spin with ease. I found they felt a little unwieldy in the trees when they were bumped out, but when things were a little softer they provided more than ample float.
For such a simple, basically 2 tone graphic, they definitely got a lot of comments. The core showing through is a nice touch.
Overall, these are definitely a ski that will get a lot of use, proving themselves capable for just about anything.
