The skis are an amazingly fun ski. I would definately recomend them to anybody looking to get their first pair of twins. I only feel that they deserve a 7 because the lack of durability of the top layer and the floppyness in crud.
The ski is advertised as an All-Mountain Twin but i would not say that. This ski is better for park and urban. It works great on groomers and pow, but once you get the late day crud, they tend to flop around like a wet noodle. Like i said, they have great pop on them and i love them just for that.
I like the design of the silencers, especially the matte black top. K2 in the crosshairs on the tips and the pistols on the tails are a gloss black and they stand out on sunny days.
I spent 450 for the ski, bindings and mounting and they were definately worth the money. These are a great ski for somebody looking to get into trick skiing.
I have the Silencers in 169. They work pretty well for my size. I might of gotten away with a 179 but it was mostly a choice based on preference.
The silencer has a very poppy feel to it. Great for rails and boxes.
My skis have a hell of a lotta scratches and dings and cuts. The top layer gets really beat up from crosses. I've got a couple deep gashes were you can actually see the wood core of the ski.
