Manufacturers description
DEACON 74 is exactly like its sibling Deacon 76 but with a tighter radius - Maximum piste performance paired with the fun versatility of All Mountain skis. The most skilled and fast-paced skiers will understand immediately. Facts: 2 layers of Titanal reinforced Speedwall Multilayer Woodcore, 3D.Glass, new UVO 3D, P-Tex 4504 coating and Markers X-Cell bindings on rMotion2 plate. So much like with Racetiger GS & SL - BUT with the wider dimensions and extended (XTD) Tip & Tail rocker profile, we get something really good, easy to ride - and crazy fun! Needless to say, this is the tune of the future for everyone without a red / blue gate focus.

Strenghts:
Fantastic carving skis, best on medium or long turns. Short carving turns should also work, but then you need to be stronger than me and be able to push through really. Works even when it is a bit run up compared to skis with less than 70 mm waist, and goes very well when there is a hard surface but then requires that you ride with good technology. Generally requires a part of the haulier, think one should have a good carving habit to appreciate them, but then they go like the train. Do not choose too long skis if you are not very strong, 168 cm for my 75 kilos was perfect.

Weaknesses:
When it is very run up / soft they can dig down a bit but it is only to be expected from a relatively narrow (74mm under the foot) and quite hard ski. If you skid most in turns, you should not choose this, it wants to be on the edge. So after all, I do not think it is an all-mountain ski, even if Völkl states this. But the width and a little tip rocker make them kinder in the run-up piste, and it's worth a lot. It's not Manchester on the slopes all the time. When it is soft on the whole slope, I choose other skis (because I own others that work better then, for example Salomon XDR 84 ti which is very good but not when it is hard).

Summary:
Best piste monster I went on! Versatile, stable and fun.

Strenghts:
Great skiing for the experienced. Easy to swing due to its sidecut / waist. Feels stable at higher speeds.

Weaknesses:
Still only been able to test the ski for a couple of hours. When the weather permits, it will be to test the off-piste.

Summary:
So get a great ski. Have never been disappointed at Völkl. Raced Racetiger earlier which was my favorite. These feel like a straw sharpener.
