        Overall

        Overall, I am extremely thrilled with how well the Comi-Kazi skis. As one would imagine, they excelled in all powder conditions. The swallowtail is fully functional and truly aids in sinking the tail down to increase flotation. Bases are bomber and you shouldn't concern yourself with going over bare spots. For a powder ski, the flex seems about perfect, and I would not alter it except to make it slightly stiff near the rear of the ski.

        Performance

        It should be illegal (although required) to ski the Comi-Kazi in powder; you are literally surfing on snow. In powder ranging from waist to near neck high, tip dive is near impossible. The swallowtail really sinks the tail down and it would be very hard to not have the front 1/3 of the ski afloat when skiing down at least a moderate pitch.

        The slightly raised swallowtail provides ample maneuverability through tight spots and in the trees, and I was surprised at how quickly and effortlessly you can turn it considering it's size and girth.

        In soft bumps, the Comi-Kazi is adequate; I would avoid skiing them in hard, ungroomed snow like the plague. I did not get a chance to speed down steep groomers, but they felt super stable on those of lesser pitch.

        Design

        I have thought about it a lot, and I truly believe the Comi-Kazi is perfet as is. I am extremely impressed with the overall construction and design of the ski. If someone put a gun to my head and said make this ski better, I would increase the stiffness from the heel extending 4-5" towards the tail. The flex and design of the rockered tip seems spot on and the swallowtail does exactly what it is supposed to.

        Value

        Compared to the price of its competitors, $625 for the Comi-Kazi is a steal.

        Fit

        The Comi-Kazi is only offered in the 196cm version. They ski longer when compared to the 193 Nordica Blower.

        Characteristics

        Relatively stiff underfoot; medium-soft in the tip; medium in the tail. No tip deflection in tracked-out powder. On a scale of 1-10, I would say underfoot is about 6, tail between 4 and 5, and tip at 4. I can only compare to the 193 Nordica Blower, and the Comi-Kazi feels slightly stiffer throughout except underfoot.

        Durability

        The bases are absolutely bomber. In my two days at Keystone and Vail, I easily skied across 30-40 logs and a handful of rocks. I was shocked to find not a single core shot, and the only damage done was a very minor scrape that was barely 2mm deep.
