This ski epitomizes the new ski revolution with a rockered tip and lots of side cut. There have been questions about the flex but the ski is to be skied using the side cut laterally and not pushing on the tip. Old schoolers want press on the tip and drive the ski. You don't have to do that with this ski. It floats in powder, light for hiking and is at home on the groomers. The ski is made for the new style boots that are laterally stiff and offer softer forward flex. This ski really performs with a equally balanced center stance. Look and goes where you are looking on a dime without the need for any effort. I am a short swing skiing powder junkie.

This boot is laterally very stiff which is great for the new skis that turn themselves. They are light and easy to walk in for miles. The positives end there. The liner completely collapsed after one day and the boot leaks water from the rear of the shell and at the lock mechanism. I also had to put Nut Lock on the screws that were coming lose. I had to put in another liner. I will use them for the rest of the season because I can't afford another boot right now. I have used Garmont boots in the past, the Mega Ride, and had no trouble. I am returning them to Garmont at the end of the season for warranty. I have the Orange Literider version which is a little heavier than the Masterlite.
