Whatever the conditions, with the Rustler 10 you?ll be grinning all day long.

Really like this ski, although I did not give it a 10 on the night I thought I had given it a 9. Really liked the ski, felt very like a Brahma just a Brahma that had had a couple of drinks and gone to a jazz club. Soft and playful when messing around at slow speeds, but when you gave it some welly really started to bite and give great edge grip, all in all probably a more well rounded and versatile ski than the Brahma

These were tested for 10mins at the end of the session and equally were very light and controllable skis taking the bumps and Hemelayers without any fuss. Skis which give you a lot of confidence to push them harder as turn easily and the high tips float over the crud without feeling like the ski is flexing and not holding its track. I would buy these tomorrow if I could, and still have them on my feet if it wasn't for the session closing abruptly

Dreamy. Lively, easy to turn, easy to control and keep parallel, carve well with great grip on ice and floats nicely, land with gentle bounce. Very light to manoeuvre, without the flapping that light manoeuvrable skis can have. I felt like I was going exactly where I intended to go. You can feel they are designed for a woman's physique. Oh and they have stylish paint job too - graded indigo blue to grey, with a subtle silvery feather motif. I'd buy them even if they looked rubbish because they ski like a dream. Maybe these could be a 10 (I tested them twice for pleasure). Their closest rival (pretty close) is the Volkl 90 Eight W, which feel slightly more sturdy.

Atomic went back to the drawing board for the new Vantage 90 Ti W to create a ski that is lighter and stronger. Prolite construction uses the slimmest chassis possible, built around a central layer of Titanium Tank Mesh, so thin this titanium can be seen inside. In areas like the edges where strength is required, Energy Backbone reinforces the build. The result is more versatility, with added power and grip on marked runs and more stability off piste.

The Nina F99 has many of the same characteristics of its wider sister and keeps that laid-back handling. Being the narrower of the two means that on piste it's more agile and the fact its widest point is further up the shovel compared to similar rockered skis allows for more grip when laying down fast, wide carves. The solid yet lively construction is a dream at high speeds and fun in soft snow.

The F112 is the ultimate choice for anyone who's heart lies in skiing powder but needs something for everything else too. The Wailer Foundation range replaces the Hybrid series of last year but uses the same energetic playful poplar/bamboo/carbon core that made intermediate and advanced skiers love it. The contact points are now nearer the tip to increase available edge grip and, combined with a 15m radius and super stable waist, means this is a wide ski that's great in powder but fun on piste too.

The Ripstick 96 is so capable anywhere on the mountain, it doesnít matter what the terrain or conditions are. The unique Amphibio design uses tip rocker on outside edges for smooth turning and camber on inside edges for grip and precision. On groomers it rips turns like a piste ski, in powder itís effortless, and in tricky conditions itís perfectly balanced. TNT Technology has thin tubes of carbon and light tip and tail inserts integrated into the wood core, this keeps weight down and boosts handling and energy.

The Progressor F18 is an incredibly lively, responsive and light piste ski that seems to turn in the blink of an eye and just loves to hold an edge and ride a clean carve. The Dual Radius System uses a tighter radius at the tip for easy turn initiation and a longer radius underfoot for better balance, this works in harmony with the tip rocker and camber. Lightness comes from the Air Tec milling out specific areas of the core and the Carbon Tex fibres that add strength with no excess weight.

Salomonís XDR skis are primarily focused on agility and hard snow performance, though the 84 Ti is the most versatile in the range with its generous waist for venturing off the beaten track. A short radius makes it nimble on piste and the elongated nose ensures predictable and effortless handling. It's a powerful ski that loves to open up on fast pistes as well as exploring tight trees.

If you like mixing up your skiing with different turn shapes, speeds, bumps, pistes and terrain, this could be your perfect match. The essence of the XDR 80 Ti is snappy handling on piste but ,thanks to the All Terrain Rocker 2.0 and its set back contact points, the result is smooth handling and a more adventurous outlook too. C/FX fibres, Ti laminate and Powerzones beef up performance for skiing at speed.

Loved this - horrid colourway for a bloke: I can't imagine who'd want it. Also, price tag is an outrageous £900, so this had better be a bloody good ski with those disadvantages! But on this slope it was amazing. So quick and easy to move, and really secure with it, which at my advancing years is a very high consideration. Would be a fantastic front side ski and I would really like to try it out for real. I later read online reviews which didn't rate it quite as highly as I experienced it. I found that surprising and am unsure of the reason. Was this the very latest model?

Apart from in looks, they are a step up, as they have camber under foot which really improves cutting in on icy stuff and no doubt crud too. These came a very close second favourite for me after the Blizzard Black Pearl 98. 98 is clearly the magic number.

Excellent ski. Amazing grip on the firm patches, just not quite as good as the less stiff skis with more rocker in the soft snow.

My first ski of the day was on e from my pre-researched list. Sadly I couldn't get on with it. Felt lumpen and couldn't get it to turn. Just didn't feel secure so gave it up quickly. It may be my poor skills and the fact of it being the first outing since Dec last year. I was really surprised given the rave reviews you see online. On paper it should have been ideal for me but sadly not this day.

Really tried to like them but i suspect that they were just too much ski for me at 185, or that I don't like that much tip rocker/taper. Great looking ski and I loved the flex, but there were others skis that i much prefered. The 177 may have been the sweet spot for me. First ski i tried and I went back and had another go later on and still did not like them. With hindsight closer to a 6 for me personally.

High-performance doesn't have to mean hard-to-ski. Designed for advanced women skiers, the INTENSE 10 merges award-winning technology with our innovative, women-specific construction for the most comfortable and fluid carving sensations on snow. Active Light Core and Powerdrive technologies work in harmony to unlock the skis' natural flex effectively planting the ski to the snow for silky-smooth stability, dynamic energy, and unparalleled edge grip.

One of the top skis of the night for me, super light weight and i don't know what they have done with the contruction but this felt almost as stable and solid as the Line Supernatural/Brahma and yet it was lighter and 4 cm shorter, quite an achievement. One thing this illustrates is that I came with a shortlist of skis to try and 2 skis, this and the supernatural were not on that list, but I was 'persuaded' to try them and they ended up being the two skis I liked the most. Really shows why demoing is so important.

On this piste, I loved it. Despite being a fat git, I normally ski around 166cm and this was quite a bit longer. No problem|! Reading other reviews, this 'all mountain' ski is said to perform best on piste, and that is what I found here. Highly manoeuvrable, it went in and out of turns very easily and I felt secure and safe picking up speed. On reflection, am unsure it deserved the 10 but definitely a 9+

Faction Say...

The brand-new Prodigy 1.0 is a newschool park ski built to help you get creative inside and outside of the park. This Poplar-cored, 90mm underfoot freestyle twin, seasoned with 3mm of camber, has buckets of pop and flex while maintaining real performance on the downhill. Rebelling against symmetrical park ski tradition, the directional shape of the Prodigy 1.0 ensures that you have more control throughout your turn, whether that?s carving in switch to a 40-foot booter or hand-dragging into a wavey trail feature. The wider shovel and Surf Zone tech means that you can easily blend those carves into butters while the skinnier, surfboard-inspired pintail feels effortless to slarve and press on pretzel landings or knuckle take-offs. Flax stringers, lighter and more ecological than fibreglass, keep the ski lightweight while XL 2.2mm edges, thicker bases and full Cap tips and tails ensure a bombproof set of sticks that lay the tracks for modern-day, do-it-all park skis.

The brand-new Prodigy 1.0 is a newschool park ski built to help you get creative inside and outside of the park. This Poplar-cored, 90mm underfoot freestyle twin, seasoned with 3mm of camber, has buckets of pop and flex while maintaining real performance on the downhill. Rebelling against symmetrical park ski tradition, the directional shape of the Prodigy 1.0 ensures that you have more control throughout your turn, whether that?s carving in switch to a 40-foot booter or hand-dragging into a wavey trail feature. The wider shovel and Surf Zone tech means that you can easily blend those carves into butters while the skinnier, surfboard-inspired pintail feels effortless to slarve and press on pretzel landings or knuckle take-offs. Flax stringers, lighter and more ecological than fibreglass, keep the ski lightweight while XL 2.2mm edges, thicker bases and full Cap tips and tails ensure a bombproof set of sticks that lay the tracks for modern-day, do-it-all park skis.

Our all-mountain, single quiver, cambered, ski. The Preacher has won independent ski tests, Freeride World Tour podiums and professional athlete accolades. The Preacher offers a lot of floatation in deep powder yet the positive camber and full length torsional stiffness allows for an incredible edge hold on even the hardest pistes.? A 155mm wide tip allows for ease of turn initiation, and the tip is tapered to avoid hooking in soft snow.

A powerful and secure ski with a lively yet smooth ride. Built to be light on the way up and strong on the way down, the new R.98 is our all-access free-touring model with freeride at its core. The R.98 takes a lot of its design features from its bigger brother including minimal camber and tip rocker for ease of turning, a medium flex pattern and a longer turn radius for stability in the changeable backcountry snow conditions. The revised, lighter weight aluminium tail allows the ski to be cut deep into the snowpack to create a solid anchor point as well being a secure skin attachment.

Boring clunky plank-like feeling. This may have been partly because these were a bit long for me so heavier and harder to turn than I'm used to, and not responsive enough to my light weight.

Skiing off-piste you are rarely carving a perfect turn, instead you use drifting, speed checking, carving and combinations of these to control your line. The ASYM?s signature design is off-set taper, making a left and right foot specific ski. While the sidecut radius remains a constant 30m on both edges, the tip and tail of the outside edge tapers earlier than the inside creating an inside ski with a shorter effective edge that is easier to control. This balances the different forces working on each ski as you go through the turn, making for an intuitive and two footed ride. The ASYM is built for deep days on the mountain and to deal with the changeable conditions you face. We selected our Traditional fibre-glass construction for this new ski because not only is it our dampest construction but it also adds mass to the ski, making for astable and confidence-inspiring ride all over the mountain.

Thinner in the waist but packing the same in-bounds punch as her sister the Victa 93, the Armada Victa 83 plays nice in all terrain, ripping groomers and spicing it up anywhere inside the ropes.

Armada Say...

Power and finesse is the name of the game for the Armada Victa 87 Ti, the slimmer half of the metal integrated Victa Ti duo. At 87mm underfoot, the Victa Ti finds its float, but feels right at home on the hardpack, utilizing its Ti laminate plate to keep the chatter down and the speed up in just about any condition.

The crown jewel of the Tracer Series, the Armada Tracer 98 is your everyday off-piste ski built with versatility in mind. A layer of Xrystal mesh keeps the ride damp and stable while the beveled top-edges create a lighter ski that can handle anything your ski legs throw its way. The quickest edge-to-edge and best performing on the hardpack the Tracer 98 is the true 1-ski quiver from resort to backcountry.

These are a Freeride ski, so meant for lumps and jumps rather than off piste and piste which I tend to do (so saying they are 50/50 seems kind of meaningless). They have twin tips so nice if you wish to spin and do tricks. The ARW 96 have a flat flappy feel, which no doubt is good for this kind of thing, but not so handy for carving or lateral control. Very pretty, but they didn't win me over at all.

The titanium version of the Ikonic 84, which I loved, didn't do it for me so much on the indoor slope. I didn't find it quite as forgiving, and almost caught a ski on one turn. To be fair, I only skied the once on it as it was near end of the day, and I really only wanted to get a comparison with the 84. Perhaps it needs a stronger skier?

Perhaps I should have given this a 10 because although I only spent a short time on it, overall I had the most fun on this and it would be the one I'd buy comparing the price point v the Volkl Deacon. Has all the attributes I love on my old Apache Recons: great, easy to initiate truns, totally secure, easy to to get on the rails for carving and will go as fast as this old man wants to (over 90kmh on occasion - but not here!). More forgiving than the Ti version, so perhaps more suited to the advancing intermediate.

My Goldilocks moment! True Luv indeed - I would have been happy to ski all day on these. Maybe I had my ski legs back by now but I certainly found these a joy compared to the previous K2s - Tough Luv and Endless Luv. Easy on the legs, nice to turn, fun to use. Would hire in resort for sure. :)

These felt very "bouncy" underfoot and I didn't feel confident and in control of my skiing...BUT this could also have been because I haven't skied for approx months!

Preferred these to the true luv because I felt more in control. Maybe these are more suitable for my skiing level?
