        Overall

        These skis are sick.  I bought them intending to use them as an east coast ow ski, but i broke my mik-d's so ive been forced to take my F-bloods into the park, and they slay there too!  they are super light, very poppy at high speeds, and will pull you back in on any forward or backseat landing.  rails were akward at first after being on a narrow 176, but getting used to that only made me better when i got back on true park skis!  they also rip through crud and lay trenches.  BUY NINTHWARDS!!!

        Performance

        the skis love going fast and making huge turns, they have a lot of camber and that mixed with the stiffness makes them stomp-machines.  ive never ever had an issue landing backseat with these.

        Value

        I got them pretty cheap at an online outlet store (9 dealer so they came with warranty too).  deffinetly worth the $ i paid, $250ish for a sick twin 91mm underfoot?? such a deal!

        Fit

        180's are perfect for me, i have them mounted -.5 from core center, -2 from true center, could maybe go a little longer, but 190 is too much, perhaps a 182-185 model could work...

        Characteristics

        skis are suprisingly stiff, making them hold an edge very well at high speeds and keeps you upright landing switch or regular.  no back seat!

        Durability

        only gripe about this ski, as many have with their ninthwards, is the topsheet chips VERY easily.  doesnt affect the performance though.
