so im about 5' 9" ish and 170 lbs. an advanced skier.
these skis slay it. i got them in a 185 and mounted them with some Barons. they blow through choppy snow like heavier skis but when you need to throw them around they un-weight like light skis. the edge hold is amazing, even on hard scraped off man made snow. they carve like a stiffer ski, they like to be pushed and dont want to come around short once they're tracking down fall line. in pow they ski so easy; fast, nimble, and good on landings(at least for small air). my only gripe would be that the tails lock up super hard on groomed or firm snow. its hard to skid them out and dump speed. i have a pair of Dynastar mythic riders and i like them better on the harder snow jsut because they are easier to skid out and they dont have as much pop, the rossi's like to lock in, build energy through a turn and launch out of it, im not used to it. these skis could be an every day ski for somone who likes a stickier tail. and in softer snow they are, well, sick.
