Strenghts:
The float, simple and playfulness

Weaknesses:
Odd parties in the piste and puckles

Summary:
Extremely nice skiing used in Japan. Trives perfectly in open terrain and floats in wonderfully. Surprisingly playful, if you plan to go skiing, Qst 118 is incredibly fun as it is surprisingly easy to maneuver and does not require much of you as a skier.

In a piste it goes out of line quite ok, but as soon as it gets out of bed, I feel it becomes unstable. At the same time, this skiing should not be used there, but in beautiful cushions on la Japan, Canada or the United States.

In summary, qst is great for pillows. The move and maneuverability make the team a very fun and easy ski that you can keep up with speed without flutter or that the ski is unstable. If you are considering buying a pair of pillows, you should definitely try to test them.

Strenghts:
Playful skiing that works in many different situations on the mountain, ranging from off-piste to piste.

Weaknesses:


Summary:
Skiing for the skier who wants to get around the mountain without having to change ski, the wide skid can initially scare you but when the ski is going to show its best, it works best!

Strenghts:
Surfig, playful, chic and easy to maneuver among the trees in thigh-high pillows. The funniest moments I've had on a couple of skis.

Weaknesses:
The low rice on the tip allows you to get stuck in vegetation both up and down. Have not tried them on the blue in a pist yet but suspect it's not its best branch.

Summary:
QST 118 is a really playful ski. I replaced my awesome Völkl Shiro * (193cm with alpine setup) only to be able to skin up comfortably easily and smoothly and to have fun fun in the January flight offered at Hokkaido. Be a bit crazy for QST 106 (for a wider range of use in Scandinavia and Europe) but the choice fell on QST 118 (185cm). I was going to Japan! In combination with a tech tie - ATK Race Free Raider 14, 2.0 - they did not make any way of any kind of thing. Absolutely handsome fun in the light powder. Very fast to maneuver, really surfing and easy to set up for a speed check with the right heavy rocker behind.

Strenghts:
Cruel, versatile skid that's calm and safe, how hard it is to ride and work swine-fitting even in the lifts and harder surfaces.

Weaknesses:
Not much to complain about, it's rather boring in the design.

Summary:
Have never been so happy with a ski trip from the first trip. And what's fun is that all days are a good afternoon regardless of weather and before! I am a medium-sized rider who drives playfully. No double cork but I'm on. :)
