Technical info:
The Gunsmoke is an average heavy sandwich construction. The skis have an even distribution of rocker in the back and front, but relatively little taper. Low camber. The tip angle is steep and the tail is high. Both ends are soft, especially the tail.

On snow:
Terms such as "hard-charging" and "full throttle" are mentioned by the test team. Gunsmoke absorbs unevenness well and can be pushed to the limit, without backing out. The downside is that it lacks playfulness, this is no ski for jibbers. This is mainly due to the length and a long sidecut. There is not much taper and the tips are quite heavy. Blizzard´s Gunsmoke may be fun for those who like it rough.
