They say

The Rustler 10 is the one ski quiver for the progressive freeride skier

We say

This was a very pivoty, floaty ski that would obviously be great fun to use in deep powder. That extra width underfoot, relatively light construction and soft flex makes it ideal for easy turns in deep pow. In the slushy conditions we had on test it rode up onto the surface easily and felt no effort to adjust the turn. On the more hardpack conditions we had on the test, those design traits that work well in deep, soft snow tend to work against it when trying to hold and edge, for longer turns at higher speeds they felt a bit more unstable and flappy

Tester Comments

Dougie Mill
Really pivotal and playful, nice to slash.
Pete Davison
Very soft rockered tip and tail which means they lack fore aft balance
