    Black Crow Camox Freebird 18/19 experiences?

    Anyone been on the newer iteration of the Camox Freebird? Was looking to snag one as a spring ski for bigger days and mixed conditions and haven't seen much first hand info out there since Black Crows updated the ski. Any input is appreciated, cheers!

    According to everything I've read they've reduced the length of the ABS sidewall, dropped the weight by 600g per pair, added titanal underfoot, etc..

    All these outlets report that the ski was changed for this year -

    They dropped ~300g off the ski and made it 1mm narrower for 2019. The standard Camox is still unchanged.

    Chris Booth charging hard and happy through thick italian windfuck-topped-pow on the sub 1400g Camox Freebird last spring. I've heard happy reviews so far!

    Any more beta on these? Looking to snag a pair of 183 for my all-around BC skis paired with Ion LTs, but would like to hear more about them than just the company line that's out there right now. Not much in the way of third party reviews.

    I just skied my new set for the first time yesterday, but I really like them. Really light, solid amount of stiffness (particularly for the weight), and handled weird variable spring snow yesterday with aplomb.
