BLACK C ROWS Daemon Birdie
AVG. 3.56 $800 SCORE
D: 127-99-116 R: 20M (164) L: 157, 164, 170, 177 STRENGTHS: Crud Performance, Quickness WEAKNESS: Forgiveness The “birdie” means it’s a women’s model, and a full-rocker profile should be forgiving, but don’t be fooled: You’ll find no mercy here. This ski is wicked, zealously scalping its foes, but those who know how to bend ’em will be duly rewarded with power. With elongated edges, a Titanal plate underfoot, and a middle finger up to the “lightweight” trend, the Daemons made testers wonder where all that crud went. “My favorite ski of the day,” said Ambrogi-Yanson.
