Stuart MacMillan says:

Great review!  Thank you!

Martin Abrahamsson says:

Thanks for a nice review. Keep up the good work. I’m looking for a ski in this segment as a “one ski quiver” ski and on top of my list at the moment is the Völkl Katana V-Werks. How does it compare to the skis in this test?

sean shan says:

tell me more bat the rustler plz

Nicholas Fadial says:

I’d like to see some more skis from line in these videos. Specifically the Sick Day series.

L. Schröder says:

Awesome review and comparison! I’m looking for an all mountain orientated freeride ski, so I get more float in the powder compared to an classic all mountain ski. Since I’m living in Europe and the conditions are not that powdery all the time and Im skiing a lot on piste with my family , I’m looking for a ski with a relatively good carving performance and edge hold on groomers. Which ski would you say fits the most out of the three- Soul7,kore105, QST106-. Or would you recommend a totally different ski?
Thanks a lot!

Dirk B says:

Simply the best ski review and comparison series out there … great job (like always)

Goulmack L says:

Thank you for grate review.
I can’t choose between ranger, soul7 and 100eight skis.
what do you like and recommend between for freeride and freeski?

Ture says:

i would like to see a proper review on the black crows daemon, and maybe a comparison between it and the nordica 100

Didrik Olsen says:

thanks for doing these. excellent stuff.

Martin Guglietti says:

First of all thanks for a very informative review! Secondly, I would like to ask which one you consider the best deal on quality/price/performance skis. I mostly ski powder but like to ski on groomed as well. Also which binding would you recommend? I am 5.7″ tall and weight 154 pounds. Thanks a lot!

Fer Zapata says:

Solid Review! I was looking to get a pair of Soul 7 HDs, I’m a 6ft, 175lb dude. I was wondering whether getting the 180 or the 188. I don’t think I’m an aggressive skier but I do like skiing all the mountain (from groomers to deep snow) and going fast. Hope you can help!

Paul Harenberg says:

I know it’s a tough ask for any ski… But is there a ski in this category suitable for a backcountry trip to japan aswell as everyday skiing in the european alps (occasional groomers/ big mountain)? Thankful for any insight 🙂

Connor Erhardt says:

Are you going to be continuing the series for park skis as well?

03stefanh07 says:

A very good review but the amplid multiplayer is missing

karlo Puma says:

What kind of size should i choose for a marksman setup. Me being 172 in height. Should i go with a 170 or a 163?

Michael Perez says:

Thanks Jeff! Well rounded review. Great selection for what I love in a ski. The only skis missing would be a Blizzard Cochise but I guess that’s just about where you stopped. Lol great stuff though. Keep em coming!

Andy Petrykowski says:

Another solid review

Silver Fox says:

I’m undecided whether to take the elan ripstick 106, fischer 108 or g3 108. I tried the elan and I had a lot of fun in the powder, but as an aesthetic I prefer the fisher. Which is the best freeriderski between the two? Is there a ski that could be similar to the elan?

Nikolai Vasilev says:

I would like to hear more about the backland

Enzo Victorio says:

Just bought me the rustlers….112 under foot

Justin Mclarnon says:

Hey guys. This is a great review. I ski a Wailer 112 that is about to become my rock ski. I like that the newer revision is more damp than my older version, but I can’t pay for the new one! I tour on it, and was wondering if you could pin down a ski in this group that skis similar. I was thinking rustler 11?

David Snyder says:

where the black crows at?

Moritz Hoock says:

I want a freeski, which is very good in powder and offpist, but i also want it to be ok or good onpist (no allmountain). I heard a lot good stuff about the rossignol Soul 7 HD and about the Atomic Backland fr. Which one would you recommend me more?

Fabian Herr says:

what about the Elan Ripstick 96/105

Chris Brown says:

How would you guys compare something like the Rustler 10 (or 11) to the Black Crows Daemon or Navis?

Liam Casey says:

How’s the marksman in corduroy and glade could I use it for kind of everything

hayhead92 says:

Awesome reviews, Thanks!

Moritz Hoock says:

I want a freeride ski which performs great in powder and offpist, but is also ok/good onpist (no Allmountain). I heard a lot good stuff about the Rossignol Soul 7 HD and the Atomic Backland. Which one would you recommend me more?

Bryan DeFabio says:

Between this in the 180cm 112 waist or the Head Kore 117 in 180cm with 115mm waist? What was better all mountain performance to pair in between a 100mm enforcer and a 124mm moment night train?

Ilya Aksenov says:

how about g3?
