The Rustler wants to be quicker and easier than the typical Blizzard—there’s less metal and more of a freestyle shape. But it’s still a Blizzard: Rippers who play hard and go fast are going to get the most out of it. Testers detected a mellow looseness in the tip and tail, but said that’s balanced with strong midbody edge-hold that won’t let you down on groomed snow. “Two thumbs up,” said Gooding. “Any decent skier will enjoy, but it likes to be on edge.”

Strengths: Playfulness, Quickness/Maneuverability, Flotation
