        Overall

        Overall I would say that I found this ski a touch on the stiff side of things. I felt limited to riding at high speeds and hitting big jumps or pipe, while the weight made them a touch sluggish spinning onto or off of rails. However, many people do like that, so if stiff and stable is your bag, then give these babies a go. You certianly won't crash landing switch on an 80' jump due to your skis washing out, it will either be your bindings or your own skill that gives out before the Addict Pro!

        Performance

        I found the turning radius to be a tad sluggish, though admittedly that is because I like the 16m radius of the foil. This holds about a 21m radius, which will do the trick for medium to large turns. The stiffer flex doesn't give as much spring out of each turn you make, but likewise will hold up at extremely high speeds. Where you might be nervous riding something like an invader or fujative on a massive jump, this ski would step in and take the cake. Stability is this thing's major selling point.

        I did find the ski a tad heavy, but that was also with old salomon 916 bindings mounted on them. The weight is nothing out of the ordinary though for a ski with so much stability. However you've got to make sure that you want stability moreso than lightweight. It is a sensible tradeoff, but a tradeoff nonetheless.

        Design

        The topsheet seemed to hold up over time, with a sort of rough feeling finish to it. It wasn't smooth and glossy like other skis, which I feel makes them hold up to edge damage from crossing skis a bit better.

        The graphics are nothing special, not exceptionally great but also not offensive. The bright orange colour makes them stand out, and gives good contrast to the black on the topsheet. The bases look great though, with a good colour of orange and simple graphics, which makes them stick out in photos.

        Characteristics

        The addict pro is a stiff ski. If you're looking for something to butter an play around on, this is not the ski for you. If you're a bigger guy who's looking for something that is going to hold up under the high pressures of hitting big jumps or riding pipe though, the ski will hold up.

        Durability

        The skis are tanks. I slid plenty of rails and did my fair share of ski disrespecting, and there was no unexpected damage to speak of. This would be a ski to buy if you're looking for something thats going to last you long-term.
