Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Faction Dictator 2.0 advice/review

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi there,

new to this forum so nice to see you all.

I need an advice regarding the above mentioned skis - Faction Dictator 2.0 95mm wide 183cm long (2018).
I am 187cm tall and 80kg heavy altogether with the equipment.

I am looking for ski pair which would be mainly used for resort and piste skiing 70/80% of the time (mainly because of the snow conditions) and sometimes when I stumble upon a fresh snow and good conditions to take them for an off-piste backcountry ride.
My main question is if these skis cover the requirements for All Mountain set and would they handle a fresh powder nicely. I am not looking for the greatest powder skis and float experience because these wether conditions would not be that common so the versatility is the main requirement.
I would rather put touring bindings (Salomon Shift e.g.) so I can use the skis for a couple of one day touring days during the season. Would these skis handle all the variable conditions nicely?

I am asking specifically for this model because I found a discounted new set from 2018 in my local shop and I am wondering if that would be a good purchase.

Good skis, often seen in use by the Verbier ski patrols.
Definitely an all mountain ski, great at shredding crud and chop, good on itineraries, very solid on piste; what I like is that they have some power & inspire confidence on a range of terrain snd snow, but dont kill me if I make a mistake.
Certainly skiable in powder but I tend to go for a bit fatter & more rocker on powder days.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Great, thanks for the detailed answer. It is really helpful.

Would be great if I hear a few more opinions especially from someone who tested them or something similar in the range.

@snowkot, with your stats you should be on the longer length as their rockered tip makes 'em ski a lot shorter.
