They say

We say

The new Fire Arrow takes a powerful construction and a race-like sidecut, but gives the whole ski more width while adding a softer nose and tail to deal with changeable snow conditions. Essentially it uses the same construction as the Nordica Spitfire which is a really high performer on piste. This model also feels rapid on the piste, with plenty of grip available at any speeds, no matter how hard the snow. In deeper conditions it cuts through with ease and is very stable. However it does feel quite stiff for deep-powder turns.

Tester Comments

Nicko Braxton
Strong on piste: carved well, but felt a little limited off piste
Mark Jones
A good choice for skiers who love riding the edge and going fast
