Pro The Attiva version of the AC2 employs lighter wood in its layup but is otherwise identical in construction and sidecut. No surprise, then, that it also rules the category in Long Turns and Stability at Speed. The main difference is its mounting point, 1.5 centimeters forward—and what a difference that makes. The women had none of the quibbles the men had about their AC2’s lack of quickness and agility in short turns. In fact, the Attiva version’s scores are the picture of balance across the board—a blend of forgiveness and performance. "A wonderful combination of light touch and stability make it a great choice for building skills," said Moscarella. Con Lacks the edge-grip to inspire total confidence on ice.
