Great pow ski, however,...
By Todd Kehoe October 15, 2011
As an everyday they don't have the durability to hold up to everyday use. They great as a quiver ski for someone with 3-5 pairs of skis depending on the type of powder day. If you are looking 1-2 skis in your quiver I would do something else. Surface is fairly solid about their warranties, I'll admit I'm tough on skis & expect them too take a lot of abuse. I don't want a good day ruined by faulty equipment.
I'm not saying these ski suck, they are really fun, they don't hold as well as others that I've used. I had some FKS bindings (luckily I found the binding heel) tear out of the mounting holes. I could have had a badly made ski, I really am not sure. The nice thing about backcountry they have 100% guaranty on all the products they sell on this site, so really you don't lose if you are not happy with what you got.
I'll admit, I'm pretty aggressive on the mtn. & will charge stuff super fast, expecting a lot out of a ski.
