This ski is a good ski don't get me wrong, but Rossi messed up this year......... I know someone who has these brand new and blew out a chunck in the side wall in about a month not even. He had the Rossignol Scratch Bling (2008) ski and they look in better shape than his 3 week old S4's. So having that said Rossignol changed the side wall material but kept the rest of the ski the same as the Scratch Ghetto WRS (2008), but changed the side wall material so basically the side wall chips easier. Also for the free system that's worthless. Where you can move the binding, for park to powder positions is useless. The toe piece slides but you have to drill holes in the ski for the heel piece and if you drill a set of holes in a ski 3 to 4 times a ski shop wont touch the ski, plus it weakens the ski. Hope my review helped, what im basically trying to say is the Ski is the same as last years ghetto but the side wall construction is different making it chip easier, your choice to buy it, your money to!
