Strenghts:
Flutters very seldom and keeps the stable turns through. At the same time very playful and does exactly what it is designed to do.

Weaknesses:
It floats well in powders but can quickly dig down quickly if you swing with the balance.

Summary:
Good skiing. I have it as my to-go-to ski at the moment and it fits everything.

About the ski: We tested Faction Prodigy 3.0 which is coming to the 2019/2020 season. A twintip for the whole mountain, with jib and nice feeling. Playful, versatile and fun. Same design as Prodigy 4.0, but narrower. Poplar and ash wood in the core, longitudinal fibers that run longitudinally instead of fiberglass, which saves some weight. Medium rocker in tip and tail, span under foot.

Max: - A soft ski compared to most others in the test. A playful ski, soft front and back, you want to go to the park with it and outside! But a little too soft for the piste, never fluttered in the piste but it is soft and has a lot of rocker and therefore not as stable. If you are a skater who does not push the huge amount, it is a cruel ski. It is good in its application! Rating 4.

Olle: - I don't really like the graphics. But it is a really fun ski that can do everything! Fun on the slopes, I thought I could push and have fun outside. At high speed it is a bit flattering, but given the playfulness it does not slow down as much. Rating 4.

Emma: - This is playful, a fun ski! Worked crap on side hits and in the woods. If you press hard to turn in the piste you want something harder. Rating 4.

CROSS RATE: 4

Strenghts:
Awesome Stable Ski. Few times I felt the shit started fluttering when you stood!

Awesome good edge holding. If you put them on the edge, they stay there.

Weaknesses:
Relatively large turning radius for my riding style.
Can be experienced heavy in the forest as it is so rigid and large turning radius

Summary:
Had the year model 17/18 as my "go to" ski when I seasoned in Revelstoke 2019.

Good ski when you got into it. When conditions are right, it is a real fun ski and go in and is suitable all over the mountain. The annual model has more rocker than this one and thinks it benefits the ski. Could sometimes be difficult to get up on the snow, but when you did it has a nice surf feeling.

The edge holding is so good to have and do with the side cut I think. 126-106-122 provides a relatively straight ski with a large turning radius as well as being a bit stiffer.

That said, a ski where you can make big turns and feel safe, but when you come down to the bottom and have to run tight forests and your legs scream, you may wish you had another ski. At least if you ask me.
