Karen Cegalis wrote a review of Black Diamond Havoc Ski on March 29, 2010
I chose these skis because I knew I'd log a lot more resort hours than backcountry hours this season, and after reading everyone's reviews and seeing all the awards they received. I agree, just stellar. They are stable, bust through crud like a tank on a turbo setting, snap into a turn quickly, have great flotation in [east coast] powder and perform great in corn and even slush. My favorite thing about them? ZERO chatter and I mean all season long. The only place I had trouble with them is hard bumps, I literally got thrown around like on them an old ragdoll and had to pull out softer boards. I mounted a Hammerhead on them and must admit that this is by far my favorite setup. Also, have never had twin tips before (not much of a jibber) but they came in handy this year skiing backwards while teaching my 4 year old and it was pretty smooth.
