        Overall

        If you are looking for a strong touring or a ski to just use in the fresh this ski is the bomb. However it blows on the hardpack and in the crud. If your a lighter guy then it may do ok in those conditions but overall this ski doesn't like to get bumpy. But very fun in the trees.

        Performance

        The main attraction of this ski is how light it is for the width. So when there is fresh pow or when I am on a tour it is awesome, very maneuverable and quick. The problem occurs when the powder gets tracked and there is crud. These things blow in the crud. Mind you, you would be crazy to think something this soft could be good in the crud. I haven't skied this in the park or on jumps or anything jibby.

        Design

        The dimensions are really nice for a touring/tree ski. Fat enough to float in the powder but not so fat that it has excessive weight or girth. So yeah, really like the dimensions for what I use this ski for.

        Value

        Good value, I actually traded BP for this ski and the ski I traded I got on warranty, so it was essentially free. THe retail price is also very reasonable I think for this ski.

        Fit

        I got a 175 and it is perfect. I use this ski primarily for touring and in bounds tree skiing and it does great in those conditions, super agile and maneuverable

        Characteristics

        Very soft, this is easily one of the softest skis I have ever ridden, it has its pros and cons being this soft obviously but yeah its soft, hense the noodle graphic on the ski.

        Durability

        Has been holding up great so far. Have hit my fair share of stumps and rocks in early season touring and it has held up pretty damn well so far.
