Man there is so much to be said and I've said it all below, just read through it, if you're looking at this ski you won't regret it.
1) Most fun I have ever had riding a park ski. Poppy as hell.
2) Various design flaws that could effect longevity of the ski.
See below for expansion on these points.
I'm going to start off by saying: I love these skis! I love the ride that they provide. They're a dream in the park. Not too heavy, perfectly balanced, and very fun to ride! Good for carving off tables, and doing pretty much anything in the park. These skis have the most pop I have ever seen. It's really quite incredible, I tried out a friends and fell in love with them. This is a park specific ski. I would not recommend getting them if you plan to ski both park and powder with them. Don't get me wrong, they're OK in powder, but if you want a park and pow ski I'd go with something with a bit more waist to it.
Needless to say, I did not buy these skis because I thought they looked nice, because in truth I think they're ugly. The graphics look like Atomic went to some Kindergarten class and asked them make hand paintings and then paste a bunch of magazine clippings all over them. It almost seems as though it was an afterthought. But really, I did not buy them for the looks, I bought them for the ride, which in the end, is what matters in a ski. OK, back to the graphics. Besides being tacky and tripped out, they are pixelated. No joke. The graphics on the two that I have (both the same, the ones with the hands) are clearly pixelated. I mean what the hell, come on. In addition, there are two layers on the topsheet. First is the matte layer with the green and white graphic, and then all the black and white Atomic and dot stuff is put on top, with a glossy material that feels almost like a sticker (don't worry it doesn't peel, haha.) Moving on: the topsheet itself chips like butter. I find that everytime I get tapped by another person's equipment or do a new grab, I see a new stringy plastic piece hanging off the ski. It doesn't bother me though, because, once again, I didn't buy them so I'd look pretty. The final design issue is the double rail. May I say: It's straight up retarded. It feels no different sliding rails and boxes than any other ski has felt before. So why is it there? I don't know. But one thing's for sure: It's going to cause problems in the future. After two days of riding, with total of probably 25 box/rail hits, one double edge on one of the skis began to separate from ONE side of the base it was attached to, and it raised up a bit. The same edge on the other ski followed suit one ride later. Although they rise up about a millimeter (maybe more) higher than the rest of the base, they haven't caused any problems whatsoever for me, yet. I expect it to continue to separate even further, so I guess we'll see what happens. Feel free to PM me at any time for an update on the separate-age factor. I knew this would happen before I bought the ski, but I went for it anyways because I loved to ride them. I can see something through the crack that is widening, but I'm not sure what it is. It's not effecting the ski performance to date though. Like some K2 Skis, there are three rivets on the front and back tips of each ski to prevent delam. You may catch them when crossing your skis the first few times, resulting in death, but don't worry, you'll adapt quickly. I did it once on a switch landing and it hasn't happened since.
Design flaws set aside, this ski is an amazing ride and I am loving every second of it. Therefore, it's not getting too bad of a grade in my books.
Other than those three huge flaw
I did not buy these skis brand new, I bought a pair of them off of someone who bought two sets at regular price, and was selling off the spare two. If you get these skis I highly recommend you get three people in on it so that you will save a lot of money instead of just having a random ski lying around. If you mount two and break one of them in a month, you can mount the other but you'll have one soft ski and one stiff ski which will be totally messed up. So don't buy them by yourself. Look for a pair or pool together some money between 3 people!
For me, I can't determine the value quite yet, I have to see if they last me through a couple of seasons without shitting out on me.
Not too stiff and not too soft. Good for butters and all around skiing. In my opinion, a perfect flex for park, from throwing your weight around on booter lips, to nose and tail presses.
I've said it before, and I'll summarize:
Double edge separates from base, top sheet chips VERY EASILY. Other than that they are fine. These skis aren't gonna make you the most cosmetic skier out there, but who gives a damn anyways.
stiff, amazing switch, kinda hard to butter, 3rd ski will come in handy in the future most likely, they are worth the money if you can get a good deal around like 450 us or 500 canadian
it performs really good switch, but i had trouble with just normal carving. pretty light ski. light swing weight. i really like them for park, havn't had the chance to get outside them out side of it tho
they look super sick. very original graphics.
seeing how i got all three skis for only 500 canadian, they are worth the money to me. the whole three ski thing may not appeal to some people but i think its a good idea. the only problem tho is by the time you trash one of the skis and are ready to start using the other is that one ski will be pertty trashed and way softer and the other will be brand new and stiffer, thats y i got an extra bindings and i will use all three skis for an equal ammount of time preventing that from happening.
these things are fuckin stiff. took me a while to get used to but after like a day or two they are pretty nice.
the three days i have used them so far the top sheets have got a bunch of scratches but we will see how the edges and bases hold up over time
