The unchanged QST 106 offered testers respite from the heavy metal hitters in this category, providing an excellent amount of playfulness and smear-ability in dynamic terrain. Thanks to a solid wood core construction, laminates of carbon/flax and basalt, plus a well-tailored tail rocker, the QST 106 is a joy to carve on, and enables skiers of all types to have it all. The QST 106 remains a solid wider option for a variety of skill levels and is light enough for the skin track. 

STRENGTHS: Playfulness, Flotation

WEAKNESSES: Hard-Snow Integrity, Crud Performance
