        Overall

        I really enjoyed this ski but it eventually went the way all of these skis seem to. Edge and base problems! My ski lasted longer than most seem to so I felt I definitely got my money's worth.

        Performance

        I found this ski excellent all mountain. You can link turns with this especially compared to many of the park specific twins. Stable at highspeeds and does not wash out on landings. I had this ski mounted center for two seasons and didn't have trouble skiing it in different conditions. Some improvements definitely could be made for rail skiing.

        Design

        I like these graphics a lot, they stuck with them for two seasons. I love the bases perhaps more than any ski since.

        Value

        Good deal and this ski lasted me for almost three seasons!

        Characteristics

        I found this ski on the medium-stiff side of flex. For a park ski, it's not too noodly. I am not a fan of stiff skis as I am a fairly light guy (140 lbs.)

        Durability

        Just as all of the trouble makers, the edges fell apart and the bases wore down. My first cracks popped up in the first season but nothing dramatic happened until the second season when I tore pieces of edge from the skis under both boot and the base began to wear down in the same area. This was fine, I brought the ski to a tech friend of mine and we gave the skis a little love. I bubbled the base after an urban rail shortly after that.

        It was about a month or so into the third season when I began to really ruin the ski, the base on one of the tails seperated from the ski. I tore about a foot of edge out of one ski and 6 inches out of the other. I skied like this until I had enough to buy a new pair of skis.
