        Overall

        The only issue I have with them is that they are very stiff, not Volkl Walls, but still pretty sitff. But overall, these are totally worth the money. and are a great buy! sorry for the stock pic, but I dont' have a good cam.

        Performance

        This is a great ski. The edge sets without an issue when you're moving hard. They give a tooonn of pop off of anything and you don't need too much effort. Forget about butters though unless you have wicked legs and some weight to throw around. They have a pretty good swing weight but at the same time are still pretty damn light.

        Design

        I really like the look of these skis. I have them mounted with Rossi Scratch 120's and the red/black on white looks sick. The skyline base is eye catching as well. I kinda like the top sheet of the 170's more though.

        Value

        You can find these things mad cheap now as their two years old. I picked mine up off here for 150 from a guy that got them for 150 and i don't regret spending that much at all. They're worth more.

        Fit

        I'm about 5'10" and i really enjoy the 180cm. I have them mounted at the "progressive" point. I want to say it's about 4 cm forward of regular. I really enjoy the length of these and the width is perfect for an all around ski. I have a race background and I really enjoy the extra width too. An 84mm waist is perfect for pow, groomers, and park.

        Characteristics

        The KGB is pretty stiff flex and is pretty similar to Hazmats. It seems to be a consistent flex pattern. It's almost useless for butters, but provides a ton of pop. I'd personally prefer a slightly softer tip and tail, but I can handle the stiff.

        Durability

        Liberty's have had a bad history, but here they got their shit right. I've gone down hard on these things a couple times and only have light top sheet scratching and no chipping. Edges are holding up well as are the bases so as far as I can tell their pretty bombproof.
