What’s the deal with them?  Seems like they’re built on Austria. That’s about all I know. 

Seems like they came outta nowhere and now featured everywhere! 

I rode a pair of 182.whatever Camox. Very fun ski. 98mm underfoot. 

Thinking about getting the 175.whocares and mounting a pair of Shifts. 

Or for a less expensive option a set of J Skis or 4Fronts.

Know about then, don't know anyone who has them in their quiver.

The maggots on Teton have a review:

Going  to give Seymour BC a go this weekend.  Hollyburn is to boney at the moment.

Thanks. 

Probably should give my GFs Line Sakana a ski first as well

I like the aesthetic, rocker profile and weight but the turning radius always seems too narrow for me. I like 4FRNT skis, calmer radius 25-30m, basically anything Hoji has designed... I find whenever I try a 20m pow ski it feels really turny to me but maybe I need to give another shot.

In the same boat. Bought a pair of QST 106 skis with a 20 m turning radius. Can't set the edge and power the turns, way too turny. Kinda bummed. Had about 6 days on them thinking I would adjust, not the ski for me. Should have bought the Cochise.

What length? What’s your weight? You likely have extremely better ski skillz than I do.

Did you end up buying the Black Crows?

Looks like I am going to probably get the Anima for next season, took some for a few laps. Exactly what I was looking for.

^Not yet. Thinking about the FreeBird editions now. 

GF just ordered a pair of 4Front skis so I’ll see those next week.
