Excellent carve hold with minimum effort.

Got a pair of Blasts last week, couldn’t wait to try them so I went to Exscape for an hour.  First few runs got a feel for them, then went for it and boy did they respond - extreme grip and carving (got some amazing angles!).  Grin got bigger each run - what a BLAST!  Sure footed as a mountain goat, I would trust them anywhere!

Wow!. What a step up from the Bandits I was using previously. 2 weeks in Whistler & 1 week in Courchevel & Im totally sold… So much so someone else in our chalet in Courchevel who was unhappy on Bandits too went out & bought a pair of these & you could’nt get the grin off her face!!.

Tested it on Mt. Ste-Anne and Masif (QC) and fell in love instantly. For 43 years, I haven’t had anything better. Bought it by custom order in Toronto and skied on Fernie, Kicking Horse (BC), Lake Louise (AB). Equally great on powder as it’s on groomed and hard surface. Had previously Rossignol, Atomic, Elan.. - what a joke! Always had to work with/for the ski to make things happen - this is the first ski in my life that is made for my skiing ability - 0 energy used, 0 adjustment required. Hold ice amazingly and phenomenal on deep snow. I’m an advanced skier (but not a pro that would do all kind of crazy stuff); 94 kg, 187cm. If you’re about my size and ability, look no further as this is a God sent!

Just bought a pair, had a week with them in Les Gets (French Alps) - fantastic!  Great for both on and off piste, brilliant carving, and sooooo responsive - Isooo much fun - I just love them!

Got these skis right before last year and loved them all year. Great for carving on the groomers and were even better for me in about three feet of fresh powder. Awsome.

these skis r absolutely great…they really take an edge on piste and r great off piste too. I would recommend them to anyone who knows their skiing.

Picked these up as a used demo ski, after 3 runs I was carving like a train on rails.  These are a great, super fast, on groomed, crud, and powder (haven’t tested deep powder yet).  A world of differnece from the Rossi Bandits I had.  I would recommend these to anyone that is over 200 lbs and can ski well.  Eastern skiers will love these.

I have had these for nearly two years.  Skiing all the big mountains in Eastern North America.

Very easy to ski, highly recommend for a hobbiest/inter/advanced skiier.  If you are pushing the edge expert these skiis start to let you down.  They have helped me excel upto an expert skiier, but now the edge confidence is just not there in icier conditions and extreme hard packed.  Great all mountain ski - moving up to Volk AC40 - greater response, stiffer, better edge.

they suck.  heavy, cumbersome, and they take about 5 achers to make a turn.  Way too expensive for what they offer.  Very bad for beginners, I started with these and an instructor hopped on them and told me to get rid of them immediately.  I got some volkl ac3’s for cheap and there was no comparison.  Don’t get them unless u want to buy mine… haha.  If you want to go fast and bust through anything thing, point these things straight and go.  They will not shake or rattle.

Ref previous review- Very bad for beginners?. They’re an intermediate to advanced level ski!!!. Maybe you should’ve taken some advice about what ski to buy that would suit your beginners ability level better perhaps!?!.
