Strenghts:
Stabila, in both hope and speed.
Slightly Curved. No problem getting rid (except on ice, but depends on lack of muscle)

Weaknesses:
Can not decide if the lacquer is cool or not.

Summary:
Tested 2 days in pist with Rottefella R8 telemark ties, first season for the season. Nevertheless, there was no problem at all to drive hard, every only positive surprise. beautifully beautiful skis whether you want to drive with a nice groove or burn down the hill.
Hope to try them out of the piste on another occasion ...

Strenghts:
Good alround, Volkl kansla, with freeride properties. Ie Stable in speed, but playful enough to drive some park and big jump. Has not been tested in cushions. However, they went very well in a deep blast in the woods!

Weaknesses:
The graphics are not the coolest of the 07: ears. Otherwise, the choice is most up to the acar. (Do not have the ski in itself to do, but Mark the bindings also does not seem to be top quality, punch the brake before I got into the slope on one ski.)

Summary:
Has 6 most of my time in Japan, but also one day at half-time in Schweden. "All in all, the impression is quite ok, not a drum in Japanese cheek punch just, but it's not done for either, otherwise it's like the stage. Exceptionally good grip on ice. Very good alright skiing, do not bast at night, but good at all, it seems like.

Riding style: Mix of piste, jump and offpiste.

Strenghts:
does not feel that it's 87 in the waist. went on before on a pair of K2 enemy with 75, and barely felt I walked up a little centimeter at the waist. stiff which makes them go as steam in the piste as long as you have cream in your legs to resist. wide enough to facilitate landings in rough terrain.

Weaknesses:
A little stiff in some situations, lying bend in dense birch forest (read kittefjäll). tongue.

Summary:
good half-foot skiing that works everywhere, piste, park and offpiste. on trips they get a little bit old, but they are not enough either to think as a top beat ...

Model year: 2006
Riding style: über alles, but preferably offpist and fast in piste.
Length on the ski: 185 cm
Riders weight: 74 kg

Strenghts:
Almost as best when it's 10 plus and "slush" in the piste. The national boundary in May / June is so fun. otherwise they will work well in pist as long as it's not hot.

In the park the skis shine. Feels very easy to handle and lightweight. Compared to Fujative 167cm 10cm short, Karma feels much easier and more fun in the air.

Quick, feels a bit like a grand slump.

Weaknesses:
In the offpiste they are too narrow and stiff, Head Mojo 90 in the same length and about the same width is a bit softer and it obviously fluctuates much better.

Does not work barely when it's hot but there are not many other Twins who do it.

Seems like Völkl had some problems with the building quality, my break was broken because the core was so soft that the bolts were pulled out of the heel. According to the guy who mounted them, this was not an isolated incident, but many whalers had been hit.

Summary:
Have gone on the skis young. 50 days in total. Went about 80 days this season, most with other skis.

Like most others said it is versatile. Ready most things ok except when it's ice-cream. Is not very funny when it's 30cm pads but on the other hand, skating is really fun.

Is a quick slide for long turns. A little heavy in the piste but not directly boring.

Requires some force in the legs and surface to take long turns at high speed. Really funny if it's a good basis

Really good park ski. I got the idea that it's possible to make threes anytime and searched for shooting opportunities all the time when I mounted them.

I drove with the skis both freeride-back mounted and the Truecenter Skiing was completely changed when I moved the bonds for the better. Feel good to ride a pistemont mounted, surprisingly good, the surface is ok, it was as good as rear mounted. Offpist is not any height, but they are not when they are rear mounted either. The biggest difference is in the air, feels like it's 20 centimeters shorter than they are, easy to spin around and very fun / vibrant.

As the top reviewer wrote, it is better to buy a pair of purebred ski slopes and a couple of really wide pudders.
But if you do not want to drag two or more skis, they work well, in almost every condition, especially park. I would like to buy these as a clean park park.

Score 3/5 in piste and 2/5 in offpiste or soft ground and 4/5 in park but if compared to other skis in the all-round class they are enough in the upper layer

Strenghts:
I think the ski is badly nice and comfortable in every situation. In the slope you can pull out of just hell without feeling a dug unstable. In the powder it is also just pulling up, keeping the pace up, they float well even when there is really a lot of snow.

Weaknesses:
Unfortunately, the quality I have to say. After a season's hard drive, my skiing has happened to some. First burst the steel edge in the middle of the skid and also released a little bit from the skid, was able to fix and now it works freely with a small jack at the edge. The coat has also been released at the front, but I also glued it, but it went up for half a day!

Then the ski is a bit hard to just jibba with. Otherwise, cruel allround.

Summary:
Wonderful all-round skiing as I experience it wants a lot of speed in all circumstances. In the park, it feels quite hard. If the ski is a good skiing for Swedish conditions, it can also handle when the snow is very deep.
Unfortunately, I have had some bad luck with the quality, but it's almost worth it, it's so awesome to go on.

Strenghts:
Stable stable to withstand aggressive ride style. Good edge grip makes it fun and reliable even in the piste. Works excellent in the offpiste. Right stiffness for this type of plank.

Weaknesses:
In fact, I do not really feel any weakness when the top sheet is on my seat. Maybe I would have bought 185th ..

Summary:
Quality skis you can enjoy and have fun with for many years. Its versatility makes it my absolute favorite.

Strenghts:
A ski that works just everywhere, but not more than that. Had my this season, sold off when I would not get more skiing days, in favor of broader layover next season that will be spent in the alps.

Feel that a wider skiing is preferable to next year, when it's surfing pillows that apply.

Works as well in the piste as outside, the most all-round ski I went.

Weaknesses:
Will not be more than average in all areas.

Summary:
A nice skiing for the whole mountain, but if you can afford to have more than a couple of skis, go for it instead.
