They say

We say

This is a new ski which effectively takes the standard Doberman Spitfire and gives it a slightly wider shape and then beefs it up with the EDT plate which delivers less torsion and more power. You can definitely feel the difference between the two skis, the EDT feels better dampened, smoother on the edge and generally a lot more powerful in long fast turns. However it does lose the adaptability of the baseline Spitfire

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Better dampened with a much smoother ride than the Spitfire
Pete Davison
Heavy and solid underfoot, a strong powerful ski which would suit heavier riders
