I really really really liked the performance. They are super fast, and can suprisingly hold an incredible edge on groomed stuff and even ice. I was going down groomers doing huge carves forwards and switch. Along with that, the skis are lighter than I imagined they would be.
The graphics are boss.
I (my parents) paid $600 for these, but I could tell immediately that they were a great deal. They are a little more than other skis new, but they are worth every cent.
I personally liked the size of the ski. I live in Seattle, and I skied this for the first time in Whistler, where I got to take it all over the mountain. My other pair of skis are 171cm 07 Ar6s, so you can see the difference. I had never skied anything wider or longer than my Ar6s, but I got used to the feel very quickly. For a powder ski, I'm very happy with the size of the skis.
I thought that the skis had a very good flex pattern for my build (I'm 5'10 137) because if you put your weight into it, you could butter like crazy, but they weren't flopping around at high speeds.
So far, I haven't had any problems. Not even any topsheet chips!
I have and ride these skis, because they are the best all around ski for me. If they are right for you, you WILL be happy! They are exactly what you expect!
These skis rock the whole hill. Light enough to throw around in the park. They are 115mm under foot, but quick edge to edge on groomers. Float like mad in pow. And they are awesome in trees with unpredictable lines.... and ride amazing switch when mounted at recommended!
These are a ski that you buy because you know what you want... and if you know what you want they are perfect! Oh they feel like I knew they would!
Ha, the money I paid.... they are the best thing ever!
These skis only come in a 182cm,,, If you need shorter, get the Elizabeth. If you need longer.... Shrink!
These skis flex the way you would expect that Mr. Pollard would want them to. The are soft as hell. Noodles! Buttery as shit,and we love it.
They are still mint after some rail abuse... and some huge crashes, where the bindings let me down. Pretty much bindings should have taken these skis oof of my feet sometimes, but no! Skis hit each other... a lot. That fucks up skis, but hese thing are still pretty mint. Fatty edges and bases a huge plus! Top sheets are the most durable line top sheets I have ever seen. People have been bitchen about this years EP Pros here.... but these things are built to last, trust me. My anthems that I ride for park, are a "price point ski". But even with those, it is only a weak top sheet issue. These are different... super durable!
