This is a homewrecker of a ski, voted most likely to convince ladies to leave their other planks and promise to be faithful only to the daemon birdie. It won’t make you jump through hoops, and a relationship with this ski is one you won’t have to “work at.” With early rise in tip and tail and more effective edge, the daemon birdie likes to carve and pivot short or sweeping turns, while Titanal underfoot also makes it a stable and reliable ride.

STRENGTHS: Flotation, Quickness

WEAKNESS: Hard Snow
