As a Salomon athlete, I was fortunate enough to ski this ski all of last season. I had them mounted with a pair of Guardians. This, to me, is a dream set up. I can ski virtually any conditions on resort or in the bc. It has enough sidecut to make turning ridiculously easy and enough tip rocker and early rise tail to float, smear, and butter to your hearts content. Overall I found it nearly as playful as the rocker2 122, but better in more conditions.
