Strenghts:
Better pleasantly in pillows. To go out like being a kid's play, you just have to watch it where you want to swing, then it turns. Just that the mounting point is so far behind, the elongated nose and its carrying character means that you can keep a rather aggressive style even outside the piste (which I had to eat several times when I crashed with snow rolls in the flatlight's fairyland Riksgränsen).
It is also relatively easy, which is always positive when booted.
The ski is stable and nice even in high traffic, as long as the company is soft and even.
Also, it seems that the skid is relatively lightweight even in short-range because of its low weight.

Then Sanouk is also the coolest and coolest ski I've seen, all categories :)

Weaknesses:
The skid becomes a bit fluttery and unreliable when you encounter uproot, both in pistons and pads. Due to the distance from tie to nose and its soft character, it strikes a part you dare not be at as aggressive as the risk of uncontrolled chop and cutters is imminent.
Sanouk is also not a skid suitable for hard-to-be or lack of crowd (iofs, there are very few skis that work well in the absence of crowds ..).
In the piste, it's also not fun to go on unless it's manchester, steep and soft. Then you can get a high potential with very large and long turns.

Summary:
Have been on the 15 ski days in the limit this season. Choosing the Sanouk in front of my Seth Vicious every day. Just because it's such a fun skiing, and when it's getting soft and untouched it's absolutely wonderful.
Have also dropped smaller drops (2-4 meters) and it feels stable in the landing, basically you never have to be afraid of it's nose.
Recommended for anyone who wants a clean offpiste skiing for those big days.

Strenghts:
The soft peaks make you feel a bit crazy, but then when you get into the deep powder and the skies start floating up, a smile is spreading from ear to ear.
They carry so that you do not have to pull your hip, but can swing a little overweight and much better control than anything else I tried in pillows. Cruising can be done at high speed even in a riot. Almost no jerk when it switches between frigite (flaky scarlet) and pads.

They even tried them in puckles. It goes there too. No trampoline sensation.

Weaknesses:
The ice grip is like that. Short-wings feel a bit addicted to these good-luck locomotives. Swallowtail sensitive to bumps. They are best placed on the nose. They are a little hard to get around in the woods when it's pinching.

Compared to my G4s, they are, of course, a bit cordless, but they are unbeatable for high-speed travel in loose snow.

Summary:
Absolutely amazing for deep snow, so you do not have to hang back and can go with speed and speed.
Cut out splash backwards. You may want to cruise more and more

Riding style: Have always been on hard skis with hard boots. Fd. racers. Now most little next to the manchestra about 20 days a year.
Length on the ski: 193 cm
Riders weight: 95 kg
Riders length: 188 cm

Strenghts:
You can go forward with feather pillows. Much better turn, no hip moves.
They are carelessly good. Swings nicely.
Have also tested in puckles and it goes (even if you whip on)
Stable at high speed. Cruisar like just that. Feels like going chopperhoj. High speed cruising at its best. Amazing when there are varied conditions eg Frigolit / soft drives. They just sail over without fuss.

Weaknesses:
Short turns are difficult. The ice grip is like that. Those soft peaks are lurking at the beginning. Blades on the front of the blue. Tristan on manchester.

Summary:
Absolutely wonderful when there are more than 20 cm pads. Equalizes all jerk from varying, wind-blown surfaces. Stable and fast straight forward but can be swung when it comes to. They only wear and carry and carry all the unexpected stuff that comes in the flatlight when cruising.

Riding style: Former competitor. Traveled for 48 years. About 15 days a year. Awakening: aggresive offpiste, going fast.
