Summary:
One of the best skis I've ever owned. I fell in love with them when I demo'ed them two years ago and bought a pair on the spot. This is as close to all mountain sking as you can get. It's great with short turns, can hold an edge running super GS and manuevers very well through the bumps. Not only does it live up to its racing heritage, it makes for a spectacular ride on almost anything, any mountain can throw at you. While other skis might out perform it in any one area, if you have own only one pair of skis - this is the pair to own.

Summary:
Wonderful ski, I demoed the 1st generation 9S and loved it. Bought a pair at the earliest opportunity. I got the chance to try out the 9S pro a couple of years later and loved it even more. More sharp responses, more excitement, more violence, I love to throw myself into a turn and let the ski catapult me out, I love the sensation of being on the edge of control.

In quieter moments I can quite happily potter along blue and green trails with my girlfriend, riding an edge or trying to follow snowboard tracks.

All in all an awesome ski, if you don't mind the fact that it can bite you in the arse if you are not careful.

Summary:
Best ski I've sliced with so far. Pure confidence that these skis are going to end up underneath you again at the fall line no matter how far you get them away from you. Fast and predictable in the course. Will handle fast GS turns but stay balanced, no napping! Too much ski for intermediates, unless some skid is involved. I will take this ski anywhere, anytime, except in bottomless conditions.
