Strenghts:
Top ski! Works out any kind of radius thanks to its Slalom spatule and Giant Slalom tail. Easy to put in turn but also very stable and very strong on iced and hard snow. The ski is still good with softer snow though. The new recoil power plate is a plus compared to 2018 Spitfire. A great combination for the whole winter .

Weaknesses:
The ski is fast but competition minded skier may find it short of power and look at the Spitfire RB.

Summary:
Great choice of ski. My winter 2018-19 Ski!

It eats hard Pack and ice for breakfast. Extremly stable at speed carves through eastern hard pack snow like a hot knife through butter.

Big bump fields, but that was not it was made for.....do you buy a sports car and take it off road??

Summary:
Great ski, for eastern hard pack

Model year: 2019

Strenghts:
Fantastic good piste ski

Weaknesses:
Not suitable for off piste or in loose snow

Summary:
Have ridden this ski for many years and think it is fantastic. Suitable for Swedish mountains, ice and pistachios. The ski can handle most things, however, requires some knowledge. What is missing is the "kick" from short turns

Model year: 2017
Riding style: Piste, pillows
Length on the ski: 172 cm
Riders weight: 85 kg
Riders length: 183 cm

Stable and safe. As best on steep and hard surfaces at high speed.

It requires an active ride to deliver. Nothing to mess around with the kids with.

Strenghts:
Stable, sickly stable for real!

Weaknesses:
Ill stable = requires a driven and trained skier to use the skiing potential

Summary:
Drove these as my daily driver when I worked as a ski instructor in Verbier winter 2018/2019 which you can read more about here https://www.freeride.se/sag-upp-dig-och-gor-en-sasong/
Chose the ski on the recommendation of a colleague who liked it sharply and that I found it at a good price .......

This is a sickly stable and subdued ski that stands most of the time, has not run on pure racing / competition teams but suspects that these are not very far away in their character ..... This comes with a price, you get nothing for free without have to work the ski all the time to get something back, in return you get a quiet ski without surprises that go like the train. Liked its versatility regarding turning radius and changes of these, which I believe is very much because Nordica has taken the board here from a slalom ski and from the middle and back, the radius is more like a big slalom ski. If you are looking for that "pop" in turns, it is important to push and (dare) hold in the turn all the way and then something that can be likened to a "pop" in a very calm and safe way without surprise unlike many others skiing that I sometimes experience gives back an uncontrolled kick .....

The grade four becomes a compromise between a fifth and a third.
If you are an ex. race-fox or someone who likes to work, this is the ski for you -> a 5th
If you like to take it easy and slide around the most you won't get as much back for free -> a 3rd

But considering how safe and stable the skiing is, I think many will find pleasure in the skiing properties, but if you are looking for something with a clear "pop" in turns then this may not be the best option

Edit 20191103:
Think skiing gives a good description of the ski see picture.

Model year: 2018
Riding style: from self-taught off-piste fox to ski instructor step four (IVSI) with a penchant for fine top rides with steep descents
Length on the ski: 174 cm
Riders weight: 75 kg
Riders length: 180 cm

Strenghts:
Stable stability in long cutting turns, withstandable pressure and swallows variations in the piste in a good way. Feeling a bit like riding on a rails. Proud of these characteristics, you can switch down and drive with short aggressive turns in an equally obvious way, such as stability at high speeds.

Weaknesses:
In some modes, can work in a groove depending on the position of the ski and can then be difficult to force outside of this area, which means that the ski does not like to bend through the curves.

Summary:
Has tested very many different skis and has not found any skiing with such wide width in the properties. As I said, works very well both at high speed and at fast short turns.

Model year: 2018
Riding style: Pist, high speed and short aggressive rides
Length on the ski: 174 cm
Riders weight: 76 kg
Riders length: 173 cm

Strenghts:
Since Nordica Dobermann Spitfire EVO EDT is not available, I will add the review here. Think that the only thing that separates EDT from PRO is that EDT has stiffening plates on the top of the skid.

Have used these skis for two seasons now and still think they are as good. For me, this is the optimal pistachio it's easy to fly (easy to turn even if it does not go well), very good grip and twist (keeps the cutting edge even when it gets steeper and you press tight). I like skis with a little shorter radius at piste skiing. This has 14 m at 168 cm. Looks like it's fun when you get a bit shorter turns when pushing and angling the skis. Despite the short radius, I do not feel that the ski feels unstable at higher turns at higher speeds. Think that it may be because the ski is like a blend between a slalom ski and a grand slalom ski, ie wide forward and narrower back. It is also quite stiff. It seems that the skid works well in everything from rocky to harvested spring skins. Have also traveled in just over 1 dm loosnö and they went astonishingly well there with.

Have tried some other skis like the Head Supershape Speed ​​and Magnum 2015 model. They seem to feel weaker and with worse grip. Have also tried the Völkl RTM 84 2016 model. I liked it. Good grip, very speed-proof and nice to ride, but a little too long for my taste.

Weaknesses:
For pistachio I do not see any weaknesses. Have these for pist and a pair of 108 mm in the waist for the offpiste. Feels like it's feeling right now. The skate fits best for those who like and likes to lay on the cuts. If you want to drive the most frequently, there are better skis.

Summary:
A really good pistachio that I think would work for anyone who likes to cut. Stable lightweight ski with good ice grip.

Model year: 2016
Riding style: Have these skis for piste (have another ski for offpiste) and avoid taking them outside the slopes to not damage the edges of the rock.
Length on the ski: 168 cm
Riders weight: 74 kg
Riders length: 170 cm

Strenghts:
Quick edge-to-edge and fasting in a turn thanks to the cutting forward. Relatively light and speed stable with its titanium boost.
Simple to have a grand slam finish. Good grip and feeling stable. Does not appear "overrun" with unnecessary material that makes them heavy and sluggish. Tried a couple of Head Supershape speed before but Nordica became instead.
Has both a stable length and a good turn with my 178 cm long skis and 15.5 meters radius.

Weaknesses:
A little unpleasant at the puck but there are a couple of pistol missiles.

Summary:
Definitely a ski to recommend. Gets fun and you can count on the edge grip. Do not worry about speed and a little rough ground.

Model year: 2011
Riding style: pounce with speed and cut and attack
