Strenghts:
Easy to ski off groomed runs, in crud and Oregon "powder". Surprisingly stable at speed, on and off groomed, some rossi gs genes. Good on steeps, can cope with ice but not an ice ski. Skis best using whole foot to edge ski to initiate turns. I stopped skiing for some years due to injury and have begun again. I am shocked at how good these skis still are.

Weaknesses:
This is not a race ski, this is not a slalom ski. This is not for icy or very hard snow steeps. This ski is now 12 years old. What will I replace them with?

Summary:
A very versatile ski. Chose B2 over B3 for versatility, very glad I did. I hope rossi still makes ski with similar specs, just a bit wider.

Model year: 2007
Riding style: Ungroomed, for the most part. Frequent turns. Like to ski trails at ski areas I don't know well, and at areas where you can just let the skis go.
Length on the ski: 176 cm
Riders weight: 84 kg
Riders length: 183 cm

Strenghts:
Feels very stable regardless of surface. You know exactly where you have the ski, never any unpleasant surprises. Above all, you notice what a good skiing it is when it's raining and worrying about the piste.
Never experienced the ship as worried in high traffic.

Weaknesses:
Is not a powder skirt but there is no skid with less waist than 80mm.
There is no skid to make a short turn.

Summary:
Is incredibly happy with my skis. An excellent choice if you only want a couple of skis.

Which allround ski - awesome !! Worked with the technology and got the ski to be an extension of the pants. Is certainly heavy, but this ski is all about everything, from ice-skating to powder shooting. Likes to get on with grand slalom carving at higher speeds - the ski can do it too ....

Weaknesses:
Has not found any

Summary:
Have a good time on a pronounced ski slope. From now on, only 50/50 skis - the ride has got a new dimension ...

Strenghts:
Stays steadily in harvested piste
the looser the better
fairly stable at high speeds

Weaknesses:
Something sluggish at fast turns
heavy skis
hardcore when it's nypistatic and hard
expensive

Summary:
Quite ok skiing for telemark, have not driven alpine with them.
Flares a bit when it is hard surface, can run really hard when it is soft and upright.
Driving with Rottefella Cobra 8, it's great to sit straight up and down and drive carving wings.
The first time I go on carving skis, so I can not compare with anything.
No offpiste, there was only snow in the slopes!
Very pleased with the ride!

Riding style: Telemark

Strenghts:
really good in untouched slopes where it bounces and has itself; D
Good for the piste
Offpist I have thief not run with it. but have heard quite a lot that it's really good there, oh.

Weaknesses:
A little clumsy in the park
could have been a bit better in the piste
the price maybe

Summary:
The B2 is a ski of a calf. Was right for me when I went .. it dived really well in the piste. even though it is quite fat, the radius is relatively low. drove both in newlywed slopes and in reopening .. and where it hurts and hurts, it plows it really well. agree with Michael, when turning a little faster, it does have a problem.
could have been a bit more "raised" in the tail, so you would feel safer to spin with it. Really nice skis that are tolerable run smoothly! :)

Strenghts:
Lovely allround ski

Weaknesses:
Possibly a little heavy

Summary:
Requires a bit more active ride on the pistachio ground if you want a carving feeling - though, you can trim on a lot of surfaces - think it is especially suitable for better skiers

Strenghts:
good offpiste!
ok in piste!

Weaknesses:
just ok in the piste

Summary:
Works for everything. Went a week in Chamonix with 3 days only in the piste and 3 nice days lasted with a lot of offpiste. Thinks they work clockwise offpiste, drove in about 20 cm loosnö which worked perfectly!
Feels like an ok compromise on the piste. Slightly sluggish and you have to work a bit to get them on the slopes where the skis where the skis did not really flourish in fast grand slalom swing.

Strenghts:
In a hard piggy, it's beautiful. At first I drove one day at the 166th which was the shortest team for me but that day was spent only in a pistil and I had fun with it anyway.
The rest of the week I changed myself to the 182 which suited me better. It can handle roughnesses well and puckles and rolls in the piste burn over without problems. Outside of the piste in more or less upturned conditions, it is a good choice I think.
Also had the chance to try the 182s in pillows one of the days and it was very easy going. Both short and large turns are done without major problems.
At higher speeds, it is quite stable (182)

Weaknesses:
In pillows it is of course a narrow one, but for a rider like me who does not run fast and big every time I stand on a couple of layers, I have to say that it is still ok.
At the end of the day, when you're tired of your legs, it's a bit uncomfortable when you want to "drop" down to the valley at the turn of the turn.
The short model I tested was fluttery at high speeds.

Summary:
My week in Val d'Isere was really nice thanks to this ski. A great free skating rink for those who are average to good skiers. Suitable as first choice all days that do not consist of mostly ice or powder.
