        Overall

        These skis were good for a begginer ski and they're fun to mess around on. I gave them an 8 because of the durability issues.

        Performance

        These skis were great to learn basic tricks on. they feel really natural coming into spins and they lock onto the rails easily. switch ups feel very smooth. they also ride the rest of the mountain really nice. they hold an edge well. i rode a little bit of powder and it was really hard. the troublemakers are prettty skinny skis so it takes a lot of effort to keep the tips above the snow. they performed great in most conditions. 

        Design

        I really liked the design on this years troublemaker. the green and black complement each other and the neon green bases are really sick. the skis would have been a little bit better if they were a little wider.

        Value

        I got these skis for a steal. 200$ !!! definatly worth it.

        Fit

        I'm 6'2" and 160 lbs and the 175's felt a little small but it was my first year in the park so the size didnt matter too much. These skis werent  made to be center mount but i felt that i needed more room on the tail so they should be center mount.

        Characteristics

        When I first got the troublemakers they were relatively stiff but after a few runs through the park the softend up quite a bit. they became soft enough to butter well but still had lots of pop. Overall all I thought the ski had a perfect flex for the park.

        Durability

        This was the one big issue with this ski. They weren't very durable. More than half of it was probably my fault because I beat the crap out of all my skis. The bases of the skis got pretty tatered up but it didnt effect the performance. then came the split in my edge that i attempted to fix but didnt really work. then part of the edge ripped right off and i havent even attempted to fix it. So these skis are really 1 season skis unless you take really good care of them.

        Overall

        Probably the best ALL around ski I've ever used. I'm still about a 50% park and 50% everywhere else....I know from experience there are slightly better skis for the park, and powder, and there are certainly better skis for groomers...But I really think Dynastar got this one right. This is the best ski I have used all around, it will handle the jumps, rails, pipe, groomers, pow, crud, ice, all beautifully...And Dynastar listened to the feedback and improved the ski wherever it could have been possibly improved from previous generations. I love these things..As for Dynastars graphics for 2008....Man, they really need to take a step back in the 2007 direction IMO.

        Performance

        Amazing product, Dynastar used to have some issues with delamination and edges...but theyve both been fixed...the edges are reinforced now underneath, and the topsheet is way more durable and doesnt even scratch as easily.

        Design

        Great graphics, very sick looking with the black and green....I don't know where Dynastar is going with their 2007-2008 design though....god.

        Value

        I got a really good deal since this is last years model...very happy with them for $250.00

        Fit

        I ride the 182's which are perfect for my size.

        Characteristics

        AMAZING, I've used older TM's (2004-2005 i think)...And I loved them then, but the flex pattern on these is a bit stiffer, but they still flex very nice for park and pipe.

        Durability

        So far, theyve handled everything I could dish out with shining colors....Huge cliff drops, I even nailed a tree which is exactly how i broke an older pair of skis.

        Overall

        Overall this ski is the best park ski i have had so far, it holds up great, its amazing on big tables and in the pipe. I would have liked something a little bit softer, but if this ski was any softer it probably wouldnt perform the way it does on the big stuff, so overall im happy with this ski as a park ski!

        Performance

        I love the preformance on bigger tables, if you screw up on a big table the ski recovers very well. In pipe they are excellent as well. The pop is very good on these skis.
        Im not much of a rail skier but this ski seems to work very well on rails too. The only things you cant do on this ski is butter and it is also too skinny to ski pow, but thats not what its meant for anyways!

        Design

        The design is perfect for park, it is pretty narrow underfoot. The dimensions are 112-78-102 which is great in the park, you can make nice quick turns on hard pack and its pretty good in soft snow too, but you wouldnt want this ski as a pow ski, look for something more like the Big Trouble if thats what you ski more.

        Value

        I bought this ski online brand new for only $230, but i got last years model. This years model in stores is quite expensive, online you can get this years model for about $450 which isn't too expensive, but for a park ski its alot of money because most people trash their park skis in 1 year anyways.

        Fit

        This ski comes in a 155, 165, 175 and a 182 length, i have the 175 length which i find perfect for me, i am about 5'8 and this ski is a perfect fit for me!

        Characteristics

        This ski pops onto rails and off jumps very well, but i find the ski also very stiff which makes it hard to butter.

        Overall the ski performs extremely well on tables and rails, but its not a ski for fouling around on.

        Durability

        This ski holds up the best out of any other park ski ive had so far, the top sheet dosent peel alot, it has re-enforced edges underfoot so that they dont crack or rip out from rails. Under the foot on the ski there is a layer of metal which makes the ski hold up great, but it also adds a bit of weight, but nothing you shouldnt be able to handle.

        Overall

        Great ski, great pop, sick graphics, and reinforced edges that could promise a good ski for a good amount of time.

        Performance

        Good preformance. Great on jumps, great on rails. Havnt tried much pow with them, but Im guessing they would be mediocre considering the thin waist. I liked the stiffer flex than the average park ski, and you get a little more movement range with the lighter and thinner waist. Really good fun ski.

        Design

        The design is absolutely top notch. The top graphics are very very cool, I liked how they didnt use a continuous or even symetrical top sheet, but two irrelevant top sheets that look sick together but individually are sick as well. Bases are pretty cool as well.

        Value

        I got mine for 220 after season, so that was an amazing deal for me. Original retail was 450 or something, which was a little pricey for me, but with good shopping skills you can find them for a steal.

        Characteristics

        Its relatively stiff but the kind of stiffness you want for park. Flexy enough for good park skiing but stiff enough for good pop and stompage on jumps. Midrange.

        Durability

        Top sheets are holding up fine so far and they have reinforced edges to attempt to bandage up the bad reputation of trouble maker edges. The edge under the grind area where its reinforced is holding up good so far, Ive used the ski 7 days so far, but theres some edge nicks in other places where the edge is softer from banging the ski on the side of rails from messed up 270 ons/offs. I expect them to be relatively durable, guessing that theyll last 1 or 2 seasons.

        Overall

        For a park ski, the '07 TM is hard to beat. It will not be ideal for riding all mountain, but that is not its purpose. I rode so many skis in the '05-'06 season, but none were as good in the park as the '07 TMs were.

        Performance

        This is an excellent park ski. The flex and shape make it superb for jumps and for the pipe, switch riding and anything else a park can throw at it. The reinforced edge is not a gimmick, it does work. My edges have held up extremely well, on rails of all kinds, including urban.

        It is great for cruising hard pack and groomers, but it is not meant for softer and deeper snow.

        Design

        The graphics for the '07 TMs are the best yet for the model. But more importantly, the structure is where it's at. The spring blade makes it all springy and lively (as mentioned before), but not making it stiff.

        Value

        With the enhancements, this ski is worth the money. For a park ski, it can dominate all aspects.

        Characteristics

        The ski itself is not super stiff, but it is very responsive and snappy. That is especially noticeable on jumps and in the pipe, which gives energy to the pop, giving great control (and amplitude in the pipe), and makes for stable landings. It has a very lively feel, and not a dead feel.

        Durability

        After many competitions and probably over 50 days on the mountain, they have held up extremely well. The skis feel just as lively today as they did when I first rode them. I still have yet to get a single edge crack after hitting rails galore.

        Mine even flew off a roof rack at over 70mph, and came away with very little damage.

        Overall

        ITS AN AWESOME PAIR OF SKIS

        Performance

        This product performed up to my expectations, the edges seamed a little funky the first day, but i got used to them after that and i absolutely love them now

        Design

        The look of the ski is siiick, i love the green base with the black and green topsheet, a really good design in my opinion

        Value

        I cant really tell about the value, but i think if you payed full price for this product you will be very happy

        Characteristics

        I like the flex of these skis, they seam to butter real nice, and the added edge doesnt seem to make them any stiffer than the old ones.

        Durability

        its held up so far, only been a week or 2 of skiing on it, but i love it so far
