Read the Review Transcript: Hi I'm Fidel. I just tested Blizzards Magnum 8.5 TI in a 181 length. Loved it. It actually surprised me quite a bit. Really gotta stay forward on this ski. Really is high energy when it comes out of the turns. If you're not on it it will put you on your butt as I experienced. Overall I give it a 5 out of 5.I think anybody who loves to charge as fast they want to go down the frontside is going to absolutely love it. You may be a little hesitant if you dont have a lot of weight or if you dont want to work in your turns as much.
