Good all mountain ski, these are the old Pocket Rockets.  Very soft and forgiving ski that rips everywhere.  Very light and fun ski thats easy to operate.  Really solid all around.

The Gun replaces the Pocket Rocket. They’re soft, but not as soft. They’re also wider and more stable. They shred in powder, backcountry, and can work everywhere else.

I also can’t decide between the Gun or Foil. I need a ski for park and powder. Any ideas? Also I have Public Enemies and they are terrible in powder.

I can’t decide between the “Gun”, the “Foil”, or the K2 Public Enemy?  I just want a ski that is awesome in pow, and sick in the park.  What’s your take?

I have both the Guns and Foils.  If you want a utility ski to do everything, go Foil.  If you wand a fat pow board to compliment your quiver, go Gun. The new Gun is far removed from the old Pocket Rocket; wider, more stable, lighter, more torsional rigidity and much stronger edge hold.  More shape as well.  The Foil is probably the most versatile ski I have ever skied.  Great in Pow but a lot of shape and carves well on the groomers, and as any look at Sammy Carlson will show, it rips in the park as well.

Skiied these boards yesterday at Copper Mountain.  Found some leftover powder from last weeks big dump, but also lots of hardpack and crud at top of Bowls.  These skis did it all: Bumps, powder, trees, steep crud, hardpack cruising. These skis are very fast!  Not as stable at high speeds as some other big boards I’ve tried but solid enough. While I still favor the Volkl Mantras as my favorite powder ski the Guns are not too far behind.

I skied the 2007 Gun and like them for an all around fun ski that is great in trees. I also skied the Volkl Mantra and Gotama. I liked the gun better. The Mantras are to stiff for deep powder. The Gotama is an awesome powder ski but sucks in tight spaces so go with the Gun. But if you really want to rip it up try the Rossignol BS WRS, the ski I purchased after trying them all personally. P.S…Do not listen to what the sales staff at your local shop says. Most of the persons that I talked to when I asked if they had skied the skis themselves said NO!! I do not know how you can tell someone what is better if YOU HAVE NOT TRIED THEM YOURSELF!!!! Also if you want to catch any air at all on any hardpack the Gotama is not at all what you are looking for.

I am deciding between the Volkl Karmas or the Guns and I weigh 125lbs 5’8 and cannot choose, I an extremely aggressive ski and don’t know it the Guns will hold up however the karmas seemed too still to ski in the tight tree line. I would like to know if the Guns are to much of a recreational ski for an aggressive skier.

The Salomon Gun is the most fun I have ever had while skiing.  The only problem was on the second run when they were brand new, I partially ripped the edge.  $50 and three hours later, they were fixed.  The edge blew again in December in St. Anton Austria.  I got a total of about 12 days on them.  If I could afford another $500 for another pair, I would do it.  I think its Head Mojo 90s for me now.

I am wondering if the 1080 Gun is an advanced enough ski for a very aggressive skier who want a ski that is manoeuvrable in tight, steep tree lines. I have heard that they are for beginners however I always see the pro’s using then in backcountry films. I am also concerned if they can take abuse because that was a major problem w/ the old PK’s. I am also looking at the Volkl Karma and I don’t think I am heavy enough to use them in technical skiing areas. Also I have heard that they are unstable at speed and this may be a problem because I am on Fischer RC4 SL race skis now and I am addicted to Mach 1 yet I do understand that it not meant for that. Hope you guys have useful info before I make my winter investment.

I’m 6’0” and 155 lbs. I’m an expert that skis everything. I’m not crazy aggressive nor especially powerful. I don’t do drops over 15 feet. I ski with a bit more technique than power.

This year has been pretty scarce pickings for powder in Tahoe until a couple weeks ago. I finally got a chance to break out my Guns that I picked up in October. I had narrowed down my choices to the Rossi Scratch BC WRS and the Solomon Guns. I didn’t get the chance to test either before purchasing. I actually wanted the BC’s but couldn’t find them anywhere for a good deal. So I went for the Guns. I was looking for a ski in the 180 to 185 cm range. I was scared the 188’s might be too much ski for tight Tahoe trees.

The verdict is the Guns are absolutely awesome! I cannot tell you enough how they ROCK in powder. 188 in tight trees? No problemo. They turn on a dime. If I didn’t know they were 188’s, I would’ve guessed they were 160’s. They turn that well. They are incredibly easy to initiate. Granted I haven’t taken them past about 45 mph, but at that speed they were rock steady in the pow or chop. They have huge float and just flat out inspire confidence. The most unusual thing about them - they actually carve pretty damn well on piste for a long fat ski. Incredible!

Between my last years Foils and this years Guns, I’m a Salomon believer!

I bought it and sold it right after 3 weeks! It’s flat, boring and nerveless. Probably it works if you are under 70kg.s (for 188). I was so disappointed…

The previous reviewer is probably flat, boring and nerveless, because he’s not talking about this ski.  He back riding his 1986 Atomic ARC’s and still mad at the world.  Anyway, The Gun is a Fun and tight ride.  I’m 39, 200lbs., 6’, Advanced and this ski makes me feel like I’m 17 again.  It’s got spring, an exciting response, and carves like an 80mm.  It’s fast and light and floats like it’s riding on air.  I also own a pair of Thrusters and between these two skiis there’s not a condition, slope, tree run, or tube that will put you out.  The Thrusters and the Gun will give you a mountain load of fun!

I live in nh and want a nice ski for all mountain and park. should i get the gun. will they hold up if i hit a rock.  p.s. im a wicked agressive skier.

i live in nh too, but i bought the biggest gun since i ski mainly at jay and go out west. if you are looking to do more groomers than out of bounds stuff, get the foil. its an awesome all around ski, just a little better on hardpack than the gun

I?ve been on these sick boards all week at Sunday River in Maine.  When the POW was deep, float city!  They turn on a dime too!  I was really surprised when I came out of the trees to the groomers.  These things can carve!  I?m not talking like my 6 Stars, but they do real well!  I?d recommend these skis to everyone looking for a 65% off piste/ 35% on.  If you?re looking for an all mountain ski, go with the 1080 Foil or try and find a new pair of the old 1080?s Spaceframe.  They rock.  As far as durability of the Guns, I?m not sure yet.  I?ve only had three days of powder on ?em.  Peace!

Hi There, just bought the Gun after the Foils were stolen in Les Deux Alpes. Bought Amada ARV as replacements. I really liked the Foils so wanted another Salomon ski and have chosen for the Gun. I’m curious if I will like them. Greetz, Tjalling Bijma

The new Gun is not the same as the original Pocket Rocket was. It is wider and stiffer. That means it is less forgiving in difficult freestyle operations and can give knee problems. Thatfor I prefer the old Gun/Pocket Rocket or maybe the Foil for fakie highspeed in deep powder!

I am 5’8”, 145, and a very aggressive skier. I live in VT and ski a lot in the east, but several times a year I go to Europe or out west. I skied the Line Prophet 90 with a Marker Duke this year and loved it. It carves incredibly well and is great for light powder. But, I was out in Tahoe this past weekend and we picked up a lot of snow which was pretty heavy. I found that the Prophet got thrown around a bit and didn’t have enough underfoot or meat on it to handle the rutty heavy stuff. I am looking for a ski for next year and I was thinking about the 174 but I don’t know if it makes sense for me to have if I live in the east. I ski mostly groomers back east aside from a powder day or a trip to Jay but I take a good amount of trips to places with heavier snow in larger quantities and I also want a pretty light ski because I like to get into the backcountry. If anyone could give me some advice on which ski is better for what I’m doing, it would be awesome. Thanks

Demo’ed a pair of 188’s in 1.4 meters of pow. They float like a dream. Very responsive and rip over anything. I have Public Enemy’s now, but not for long . My new Gun’s are on the way!! British Columbia Rocks!!!!!!

just picked up a pair of ex rentals (174) to replace my (158) foils (wife’s nicked them!) seemed really nice for swiss summer skiing, don’t seem to be much more work despite the extra length! but are a bit heavier to cart about, worked well in the slush and ok in the bumps. looking forward to some fresh powder at new year. fyi am 90kg 6ft advanced, yeh i know i should have the 188s! but like the short stuff after years on blades. don’t eat the yellow snow! cheers.

Love this ski, just love this ski. Busted my first pair in only 10 days last year. Solomon stands behind what they sell and put me back on my gunns no questions asked. I was on Pocket rockets before my gunns and i’m so happy to know that this season its back to the gunns. Oh and yes love these skis. Cheers, think snow!

I am 6 ft 180 lbs.  I don’t care about skiing fast,  just like powder, bumps, trees, steeps. Should I go with the 174s or the 188s?

Salomon Teneighty Gun 2007
Written by Ski Review Guest on 01/22

I am a bit heavier (200) than you, and the 174s are fine for me in powder, work in bumps ok too

Skier Height: 6 ft Skier Weight:200 Skier Ability: Pretty good Ski length Tested: 5 years

Ski Review: I dropped ten feet onto a rock and the edge held but went clear thru the core. Fixed it up just fine. Perfect for the Utah resorts that get good snow. Used it everyday except when there was multiple feet of new snow and then busted out the rockers although they would have been just fine.
