Read the Review Transcript: Hi I'm Adam and I am skiing on the Nordica Transfire 78 TI for 2013. I give this ski a 4 out of 5. It's a great skiing ski for it's price point Partial sidewall underfoot so it give you a litte bit of edge grib where you need it. Cap construction in the tip and the tail. It's pretty forgiving and easy a very solid intermediate skier looking to get a good investment on a ski thats a really good value. I'd go with this guy Transfire 78 from Nordica.
