These skis are an amazing fat touring ski. It is much improved in stiffness from the older verdict. It can now handle the crud a lot better and crushes it on powder and firm snow. The side cut dimensions of 134/102/120 makes it a great all purpose tool.
If you are looking for a lightweight touring ski, this is not it. I would only recommend dynafits on these bad boys to keep the weight down! Otherwise your hip flexors will be in for some hurting.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
I loved the original verdict with one exception: too soft. This new model has improved upon that but it has made the verdict a totally different ski than its predecesssor. I recommend demoing before buying as it skis different than the older version. Very versatile and not too expensive!
