        Overall

        these things are absolutely sick get a pair as soon as you can and mount them with look PX12 ti's they will abbsolutely slay!

        hope you like the review

        Performance

        this thing absolutely ripped everything. I have to admit though at first they are hard to get used to, i went through a GS course just to see if i could still do it (ex racer) and it was difficult because it has a large turning radius. These skis do like fast med-long turns though, you can still do short turns at low speed but they wash out a little, but you cant do short turns at high speed, i frequently did turns that were slightly large than slalom turns and they handled nicely making nice clean arcs.
        Jumps: this is an amazing jumping ski... Period. these are pretty stiff so you can launch 80 footers and not wash out. They have a nice swing weight thats easy to get used to.
        RAils: i dont do rails that much but they were alright, i mounted at -2 from center(freeride) so they could have been better but i dont care i still learned 270's off on these :D

        Design

        i loved the design, from the graphics right down to construction. These skis were definatly built to rip and most people with these skis will agree with me. i really liked the way 4frnt did the graphics, the top sheet isnt loud but the base will blow your eardrums. The turning radius could have been tighter for me because im more of an all mountain/pow shredder but these were still nice switch because it was a longer radius

        DONT GET ME WRONG i was in the park about 40% of the time with pow 40% and all mountain 20%

        Value

        hell yes this was a steal.... i got these suckas for 200 shipped brand new off e-bay and i lovem. I think retail for these is a little steep though so go find some crazy deal, or if you can afford it then you should get em at retail

        Fit

        i really liked the size (160) but im sort of growing out of it, which is depressing but i dont have easy access to heroin or guns so i cant kill my self... I really think i should have gotten it in 170 which would have been perfect but im fine skiing 160's. my next pair of skis is probably going to be a pair of addicts or anthems, i cant decide

        Characteristics

        this ski had a great flex.... for me, Im 5-9 and 135 pounds and this ski absolutely ripped. The first day i had these bad boys i took em out and just did some rip runs and i hit about 50 on these (please dont say bull crap you didnt hit 50 cause i did,radar). These skis do take a little breaking in. mine were super stiff the first day i got them and hard to butter around on, but after a few days of jumping i could get the tails ahout a foot and a half off the ground

        Durability

        These things were bullet proof, i came 20 feet down off a cliff onto a boulder (i didnt see it at the top it was under a bunch of snow) and they barely got a scratch on the bases. the topsheets could be a bit more durable though mine are pretty chipped.
