Technical info:
Like 4Frnt, Amplid manufactures its skis at Elan´s factory in Slovenia. Hill Bill is quite different from Infrablack. It has a shorter setback and more rocker in the back. They weigh the same, although this ski is slightly narrower. The camber on Hill Bill is extremely high: 13 metres means 8 mm camber over only 108 cm. Affordable price.

On snow:
This big BC jibber ski is quite heavy. It gradually grew on the test riders. At the same time as the ski is made for play and powder, it also performs well on the piste. This ski has no obvious weaknesses and it is stable at speed, especially for being a BC jibber ski. This is a ski for those who have the muscle power and like to do tricks wherever you may find yourself.
