|Strengths:||The customization of the ski made it allowed me to be an independent mono-skier. The loading mechanism makes it an easy load onto the lift, and the suspension did a nice job smoothing out the rough spots on the slope. The chest strap greatly improved my balance.|
|Weaknesses:||As with any ski you have to remember to tighten down the nuts and bolts after every use.|
|Comments:||I am a T-3 para who has gone from a twin ski to a mono and have greatly improved my skiing.|
