I give it a nine as price is a little high for the average buyer, but i am sold on these skis and will be until i get my next pair. they are as durable as mad trix but without the 2x4 feel, great everywhere on the hill, look great and feel great.
i love them.
These skis are solid skis in all conditions. Riding around the mountain and hide speed hops to switch are no problem. take them into the park (their home) and they handle big jumps just as well as half-pipe, and on rails they are smooth as butter, i can actually feel the rubber strip which is infused between core and egde which dampens vibration.
the look of this product is amazing, i mean, jamacian flags! i got comments from skiers, boarders, old people, young kids, it is jest a great looking ski. the top sheet is also made of a durable material that has a rough feel and is very resistant to chipping/scratching.
all movemetn skis are on the high side f pricing, and you get what you pay for. they are worth every dollar of their price and due to restraints in distribution, they will be priced the same wherever you go, unless you can talk to a rep and get a pair of demos.
This ski is a mid-stiff with lots of pop in it. you can butter and ollie but it will hold it's own ploughing through crud. It's all in the wood core of this ski, okume poplar, which is lightweight but durable.
these skis are built to beat. i had a pair from january to march and only at the end of march did i require a second pair for halfpipe. i have no breaks in my edges which is good as i do rails 50% of my time. at the end of the season my first pair still had the same pop and energy as when i frist put them on.
