Read the Review Transcript: Hi I'm Kevin. I just got off the Blizzard 8.5 Magnum TI. For me this ski gets 3 out of 5 stars. I just dont weigh enough to really ski it to it's full potential. So if you're a bigger guy you've got a lot of weight to push or a real musclear dude this would be a really good ski for you because you have a lot of energy to push it. At my weight though I just couldn't get the maxamized potential of this ski. I just couldn't load it up and get the energy out of the turn so it felt a little sluggish to me but it's definitely smooth, stable at high speeds. Lots of edge grip so 3 out of 5 stars.
