    Zag Skis Review

    Ok I skied the 193 Zag golds today in the baker BC where the conditions were mostly powder. These skis with there 140-93-118 dimentions are the easiest skis i have ever turned in powder, and they will NOT dive at alll!!!! In short they are the best pow skis i have ever skied, even bettter than my large volkl quiver. BUT these skis do not handle crud/ ice etc at ll, there mildly ok on packed powder groomers, but would benefit from beaning much stiffer, and possibly a 97~100 ish waist. But overall they rocked in powder!!!!!!!!

    I skied these in Switzerland 1 day. I found that they float really nicely but were a little bit hooky. I agree that they could be stiffer. I kinda thought that they were a strange in-between: too much sidecut to be a true pow ski but not quite sturdy enough to chow crud.


    That said, I live in a concrete jungle and don't go skiing anymore.
    You know, there's like a butt-load of gangs at this school. This one gang kept wanting me to join because I'm pretty good with a bowstaff.

    zig zag review

    the black, licorish-flavored zig zag papers are awesome. burn well, not too thick... and add an air of distinction and differentiation to your smoking game. wait a minute... is it 5pm yet? nevermind.

    The inch and a quarter are great too.

    Less than rad at straigtlines, and hooky if don't stay off the tips. At least, they were for me.

    I had no problems at with them hooking, only when i encounted some avy debry chunder. As far as straightlines go, they dont seem quite as stabel as the explosives due to the sidecutt, but they will turn on a dime in pow at high speeds, something that the more stable explosives wont do.

    BB was hooking in Vegas but was up against some stiff competition he had trouble beating. I picked up some of the zags over here and can't get them to roll easily. I'll try skiing them upon my return home.
