The Gun is a perfect platform for the skier who isn't skiing pow all the time, but is skiing it a lot. If you're a super-duper backcountry hero, the Gun may be a bit on the soft side. But if you're a jibtastic rider looking to huck some cliffs and stomp hella powder landings, the Gun could be your new best friend.
It took me a while to get used to the way the Guns handle, but now that I've been on them a few months, I'm really starting to like them. I ride the shorter models at 172cm, which, in addition to a +2 mounting point, meant I was going over the handlebars quite a bit during the first few pow days.
Now that I've gotten used to them, I can power through just about anything; despite being fairly soft, you can still charge with these skis if you're willing to grab hold of the reigns. I wouldn't recommend them if you're a supercharging speed demon, but for big pow hits and deep pow turns, these skis are on the money.
Pretty cool graphics I guess. My girlfriend said she'd take my skis over me, so I guess they're pretty hot to the opposite sex!
The Guns come with a flashy price tag, but they're worth just about every cent. Wait 'til the spring and get them on sale, you won't regret it.
The Gun has a fairly forgiving flex, and is softer than most of the skis I've ridden. The noses are great for buttering, and the tails (when you're mounted a bit forward like me) are perfect for powering through pow landings.
I've been on mine about 25 days so far, and 'nary a scratch on them. I'm a bit worried about them deadening through too much buttering and flexing, but so far they're holding up well.
