Strenghts:
- stiff, so really felt under control going much faster than ever before on powder;
- great float, and the tips did all the work to keep me from having to lean back at all - could ski them agressively even in soft snow;
- such a big tip rocker made a HUGE difference to my skiing and enjoyment of sun-crust on top of powder - the tip cut reliably through the crust, and I could ski the crusty slope as it if was powder and just ignore the top layer - absolutely amazing feature for skiing in the Alps, where even a great powder run can oftern end in a warm, sunny valley with variable conditions;
- was immediately surprised at how well these skis handle the piste. I had taken two pairs, in case they were just rubbish on the corduroy, but they actually felt quite controllable, I think largely because of the stiffness but also because you do have a 1 metre edge even on hard stuff...

Weaknesses:
- a ski that big and stiff is always going to be quite heavy;
- tips are so wide that I couldn't get my Black Diamond skins' tip-loop around them (but the tip loop on my skins from ClimbingSkinsDirect.com worked fine);

Summary:
Having not tested a lot of big rocker skis, it's hard to be definitive, but I know that I have a minimum requirement for the stiffness of a ski, for control at higher speeds, and this was a cracker - not as stiff as the Thunder, I think, but plenty stiff enough for a ski its size, and I think the Ragnarok (which is stiffer) would require 100+mph before coming under control... I think they got the stiffness of this ski just right.

Charges very well, yet the bullet tip and tail (this is a 5 dimension ski) helped with initiation of turns in the soft stuff - even though 190 is really quite a long ski, I never felt once that the tail or tip were getting hooked up in the soft stuff, or even in tight trees.

The ski made skiing powder easy, and made me want to go fast, even in tight spaces; and when the snow was rougher, hard or thin, or even crusted and choppy, I always felt that I had a reliable tool for the terrain.

Excellent work, Whitedot - I look forward to trying another ski in your arsenal soon...
