Pro Fluid, balanced arcs through chopped-up snow at speeds most people reserve for the groomers? It’s the mark of a great skier. Or maybe just great skis. Testers decided the Magfire 12 could make anyone look good in crud, which is a real strength of this damp, unflappable ride. It makes broken snow ski like groomers, and groomers ski like your own personal super G course. A full wood core, vertical sidewalls and two sheets of metal give it integrity and calm, and while it generally likes to go down the hill as fast as you’ll let it, the Magfire 12 has a forgiving side, too. It even likes short turns. "Any shape of turn was delivered on time and in perfect condition," said Hogen. "I never had to work, but always got what I wanted." Con Damp to the point of lacking liveliness.
