Technical info:
Not everyone likes super-light constructions. The touring specialist Hagan has made The Jack for those who want a little more mass under their feet. Hagan has also chosen a special geometry, with a long taper in the front and a very long setback. A lot of front ski and not a lot of back ski in other words. This is followed up with a stiff flex and a short sidecut in the back. The Jack is also the Austrian manufacturer's budget alternative.

On snow:
Hagan´s "heavyweight" model is more responsive on hard surfaces compared to other lightweight alternatives. It convinces us on steep slopes with hard snow. At the same time it is easy to turn with and easy to handle on soft snow. The long front ski flutters a little at speed, and we don´t recommend it if you want to go really fast. But this is a reliable and affordable touring model for the heavier skiers who do not trust the lightest models.
