Read the Review Transcript: Hi I'm Charlie I just got of the Elan Waveflex 12. I'm going to give this ski 5 out of 5 stars for the value. For your advanced skier this is a great ski for somebody thats doing the front side. It was really poppy, it held it's edge really well. I would be surprised with how much power it gave me through the turn. It wants to make real quick snappy turns the fall line. It was just a really good ski it surprised me. I think this is a better value ski than the bigger brother the 78 TI.
