Strenghts:
I bought the 2005 model in 165cm. The ski is lots of fun! Lively, quick turning, one of my buddies claimed I was throwing up huge plumes of snow on very turn! Its pretty good most very where on the mountain. The shovel helps in light powder. Packed powder is a blast with these skis. Straight fall line Steeps with these skis are an adrenaline rush!

Weaknesses:
Probably ice hold. A Volkl they are not; but they are lighting quick!

The 2005 models had a delaminating problem. After 15 days the protective clear plastic topskin begins to separate from the graphic. This doesn't affect performance in any way but does look unsightly. I cut the delaminate away with a sharp utility blade.

Summary:
A most fun ski to ski anywhere. Its limitations would be boiler plate ice and very deep powder. But with its 65cm waist you can turn on a dime almost anywhere else!
I bought them for $250 in Oct 08. They had never been skied on. They come with bindings. You can ski them short.

Strenghts:
This work works at everyone, I've tried it, my daughter has had it for several years and the fruit has taken over it, everyone is satisfied ... The stability, the security, but still happy is a good combination. They get soft if I'm pulling in a hard black back, but I'm wrong target group

Weaknesses:
Perhaps a bit too swung due to the short radius, though on the other hand it is so good to compensate for it. The rest of the family has nothing to object on the ski.

Summary:
Very good skiing for average and upward. It can handle 88kg pig kilograms :-) and my daughter at almost 60. We have been helicopter and run without being disappointed. Buy!

Strenghts:
Harmonic and well-cut in hard piste, also worked well in snow and snow (but not off-piste), made perfectly in Vemdalen's all slopes, just let go of them and everything went on track. I can not wait to get better, and I've got better response than any ski ever gave me before. With more weight on the ski they will only get better.

Weaknesses:
Ordinarepriset and that it never gets anything for the off-piste fantastic. this is a slalom skiing!

Summary:
If you want a slalom ski, here it is.
No race skid but it says well the name itself, buy RC if you are going to race, buy this if you are going to enjoy =)

Strenghts:
Went the ski (170 cm) a week in Tänndalen's slopes. The skid is easy to swallow and has a superb edge grip. Both short and long turns make it galant. Estimated it especially in long turns where it is really stable. The substrate was slightly varied, from hard-nipisted substrates to a decimeter of fresh snow. Works best on hard pistachio underlay.

Weaknesses:
Offpiste, sneezing, drift snow.

Summary:
A cannon-shaped skirt in hard pisted surface that is easy to swivel with. Very speed-stable. Even affordable if I compare some more expensive models I tested.

Strenghts:
Rented the skis for a week in Lofsdalen in February and went with a constant smile. What fun skis! Very lightweight, good edge grip, able to squeeze (yes, you have been riding full length for 25 years) and "reliable" in traffic. The idea was to test different skis during the week, but I kept them.

Weaknesses:
I have not found any.

Summary:
Kanonbra slalom skiing for us who do not weigh so much and like to swing. The skis gave me a taste of me

Strenghts:
Tested the skid in hard cold piste with very good surface but with a few elements of ice. Incredible edge grip - like driving on rails - was able to squeeze on anything. The ski is very forgiving.

Weaknesses:
None in the piste - imagine it's "like that" outside the piste.

Summary:
If you want a good pistachio with a lot of turns while it's going to be fast-paced, this is the thing.

Strenghts:
Rid the skid (170 cm) nonstop up and down in Funäsdalsbacken in Härjedalen, which is red / black. The back was a bit worn and it was mixed with some fresh snow, driers and harder parties. The RX8an went as rush!
Very entertaining, speed-stable and an edge grip that was perfect. Have never been faster in
this back despite the fact that the surface was not quite good for "racing". Think that the ski can also work
Easily even outside the piste, but then there are better options. Will buy the ski.

Weaknesses:
If there are weaknesses then it will be in deep snow

Summary:
Strongly hard with good edge grip and very entertaining in the piste
