Strenghts:
The weight is obviously hard not to point out, every gram under foot makes difference especially if you are going to ride a little.
Sick stable, really trust! just to gasp :-)
Dimensions, not too wide to cope with upright and hard, not too narrow to give a nice flow in the powder

Weaknesses:
Obviously requires his skier! it is important to stand on and to energy ....
Not easy to carry with a hand if you do not want to slap their gloves, difficult to grasp because they are so thin at the edges, really practiced my new ability ;-)

Summary:
Easily the best ski I've had so far, has run both on Gotama & Kuro before, but not "old" Katana.
Giving really confidence and just gazing on, experienced me as a clearly better skier in the harvested offpiste (read Longan / Lavancher a few days after last snowfall).
This is a real freeride charger in my world! log as a twelve year most the whole time ....
If I were in season, I would easily bet on these as single-skid, fix everything outside the piste with good luck and well in the piste, so is the old-known volleyball performance that applies :-) What's up there now? ;-)

Edit: after two weeks in Japan, just realize that it is not wide enough to cope with the light and deep snow here

Model year: 2014
Riding style: From self-taught off-piste fox to Step 2 in ski instructor education that enjoys all the rides but still focuses on it outside the slope
Length on the ski: 184 cm
Riders weight: 80 kg

Twisted, light, witty, snowy.

Weaknesses:
Have not detected any yet.

Summary:
Easily the best ski I ever went on. Great fun with a very nice contact with the snow. Feels safe regardless of whether it is loose, upset, manchester or icy. Drive with Duke and Scotts edge pants. Very nice combination. Returns with review 2 when Riksgränsen has opened and I have started to trip with them.
