Read the Review Transcript: I'm Brad and I just got off the Rossi Scimitar. I was really impressed with this ski. I'm going to give it a 4.5 out 5. Real smooth ride, this one I rode was a little center mounted. Still held really well underfoot in short turns and long turns the transistion was really nice. I'm a lighter weight guy so it's a little bit softer and worked well for me. I could get it up on edge. The condtions are getting a little sloppy out so I was impressed at how well it handled chatter. For a really burly guy you might want something a little more beefy. For someone like me I found this ski real nimble and real smooth.
