Hi I’m Adam and I was just skiing on the new Head V-Shape V8. I found this ski to be a great ski for that strong intermediate all the way up to expert level carver. 75mm under foot this thing is extremely edgy, extremely quick. With Heads LightTech technology, it really makes you feel like you have nothing on your feet until you really pick up a good clip of speed and just engage it into a turn. Very smooth if you want a good carving ski at a great value this is an awesome option for you.
