Technical info:
The Fly Swatter is an unconventional classic from Swiss Movement. Their skis are made in Tunisia and Slovenia. This one is made in Tunisia. There is a huge rocker in the front and back ski. The Fly Swatter has a lot of sidecut, but the taper prevents the tips from being enormous. It has a stiff tail and a stiff front ski.

On snow:
Movement do it their own way, and who can blame them. The Fly Swatter is simply a magnificent ski. It gives a wonderful feeling of control and playfulness. There is also stability at speed, especially considering the super short turning radius and the big rocker in the back ski. Many big mountain riders will probably be skeptical to the extreme choices Movement has made here, but if you take the chance, there is the possibility that you will become a more playful skier this winter.
