Summary:
My first shaped skis after years of skiing on straight 200 - 207 cm in Europe and Northeast US.
Having demo'd many others, these K2 Merlin III's are absolutely the best I've tried. These are long-ish,at 188 or maybe 192(?) but WOW. I am not a ski gear pro, but seem like a super ski for cruising and for hard fast skiing. A super value bought about three years ago.

Summary:
I used to work at sport chalet and took a pair of these demo boards to chamonix without ever skiing them. I was on a 190 volkl rentiger and was immediately converted to parabolic skiis. These ski anything adn they are 173, I blow by snowboarders like slalom gates, jsut a fun all around ski, can't imagine anything better,e xcept free beer.

What can I say, these skis absolutely rule! They excel in all conditions, and I love them. I've got some Merlin IV's as well, and they're impressive too. Great skis...

I thought this was a great product. It preformed well in powder, bumps, groomed, and everything else imaginable.
