Strenghts:
Twisted and smoothly soft to work well in the wind and snowmobile without getting rid of the piste.

Weaknesses:
The weight, definitely not the best pistachio in the world, but it's not the ambition of this ski either.

Summary:
I've been on these in all possible bowls, ranging from airy cushions in Canada on helicopter tours to slopes that are almost similar to concrete in France to the spring-breaking hump in Åre via newly-preserved slopes in Sälen. My experience with this ski is that it is most enjoyable in the wind. There the skis turn into completely amazingly smooth and playful. I suspect that I'm a little too easy for those in the deepest canal island, and I get a lot of work with them in the piste. You should also know that the ski weighs a lot, so you'll have to carry on when you want to go where there are no lifts.

Riding style: pillows (and especially slasksnö)
Length on the ski: 180 cm
Riders weight: 70 kg
Riders length: 178 cm

Cruel skiing that works everywhere. If you just want to have a couple, these are perfect. Only negative was that my dropped in the nose after a week. A polar had similar problems and according to other reviews, this seems to be a common problem. Got a new pair so probably Head is aware of the error. Hope the 03-04 model has hit the nose, needed with the aggressive rides these skis are made for.

Pillows on you.

A very sloppy ski that salty the kebap in a very good way. Cruel in the powder despite its relatively high weight. A little tongue to get around in the piste but they are not true for anyway. Crueled speed table.
The only drawback is that the cap loosens a bit too easily.

Slarva the lady!

Well, what do you say? Unassuming ski ... Had the Bandit XXX 185 cm before I bought my Monster 186: or. Better on all the words.

If you are only actively active (read: aggressively) on them then there is nothing that can stop them. A spring week down in Serre offered the perfect spectrum of different bowls to assess the characteristics of the skis: stone-hard artificial skinnies, skulls, fluffy cushions, heavy wet lice, lack of crowds, stones ... Everything handled it galantly.

Possibly a small reservation for the tendency to dive in loose snow if pressed so much that the weight lay too far on the skis. Then it became a faceplant ...

Otherwise very huge. The faster you go, the happier is the monster, at least as long as you're on the verge. A little bit flares straight ahead at high speed, but it's not that strange, for example, the short swing radius, among other things.

Best skiing I've ever had!

Have been driving on the head monster iM85 for three weeks and e completely satisfied with them. However, they have dropped in the nose, but it will probably be advertised. Have a friend who got the same problem with them, he got a pair of new ones. Maybe it's going to be next year's model =) Otherwise, they worked well in both piste and offpiste ... definitely a top ski.

Tested 186 cm some yard in hard piste. Looks like it was very similar to my wrist G4 188 cm. What differentiated was that they had worse ice grip and slightly smaller turning radius but an obviously good ski. Tested Monster 75 177 cm before and I did not like it at all. It was fluttery at high speed and bad kick in the turns. Perhaps it would have been better for a longer length.

Have spent the whole winter on this ski and it's a ski that works in the piste if you drop off. A surprising ice grip despite its width! We do not like a snack if you like to go fast, so do not worry because it's the last ski! Not recommended for short-range short-sleeving or otherwise in the SPS spirit without dropping the skid in the fall line o crushing !!

186 cm. Mostly skiing. Gun in piste for its size. Carvar good and is relatively witty. That it's good offpiste is hardly surprising. However, it appeared that there was a tendency for flooding in pads, probably because of the short radius. Can imagine that the 193s are even more beautiful. Short o good a very good o versatile ski. Weighs just over 70 boilers.
