Ok man, pari tenu... Monday, they are lifting the roadblock in Stoneham on the 175 road; I am going up north to ski nice snow. Since that Sainte-Tabernacle's snow isn't so good, you decide to take shitty skis; you do not care to break them apart...

What wrong with you guy? You don’t like my skis?

I really don’t see what is the problem with them...
They are made out of chineese bamboo chopstick leftover
They are made in china
They have a triple camber
They have no rocker at all

Are those the 80's?

Rossi says they are supposed to have "modest tip rocker"

how are they?

Seriously, they don’t have any rocker at all... I know Rossi website claims they have a modest rocker but believe me, they don’t...

They are really similar to the Madshus Eon/Kahruy XCD GT
Same side cut, same profile, a few grams lighter and 20 years younger.

They are not a bad ski for long touring days, they have the ability to turn in light powder. A bit too short (max 186 cm) and a bit too narrow for my weight/height.

I have to respectfully disagree; the camber is way stronger than on a Eon or Epoch. I tried it a couple of times; even the sellers didn't believe how strong they were. But for a big guy like you, no problemo I guess...
