        Overall

        great, all around ski.  Can't think of anything it can't handle surprisingly well

        Performance

        amazing.  The one-ski-quiver.  Surprisingly good in moguls for it's stiffness.  Really high tip and tail, so I'm not catching in crud.  Great for riding switch even in powder, awesome sidecut.  87 at the waist, not a superfat, but it still floats.  

        Design

        wood core so sweet

        Value

        price probably dropped a lot after I got it.  600 then, but very high quality ski

        Fit

        good size for me then, but I grew 161 cm. is one of the smallest adult skis, but fits me well

        Characteristics

        8/10 for stiffness- not as much pop as I might have liked, maybe not the best jib ski.  Absolutely no chatter though, any speed.

        Durability

        very strong, base is going strong after many rails, only complaint is that the topsheet by the edges chips if you cross your skis a lot (I love mute grabs)

        Overall

        A sick ski for the money, definitely for the mountain skiier who wants to tear it up in the park as well.

        Performance

        Yes. It has a relatively low swing weight. The flex gives a lot of pop off a jump, and the twin tip makes skiing backwards a breeze.

        Design

        The 07 Top sheet graphic is sick. It also doesn't have the "rip your face off" texture of the 06. Its symmetrical, and most of all it looks SICK on or off the mountain.

        Value

        Fairly accurately priced.

        Characteristics

        Its very stiff. I could barely get the tips off the ground by leaning back

        Durability

        I haven't had time to put much abuse on em yet, but they seem to hold up well.
