Tester's Review

Review: First, everyone liked Mr. (Eric) Pollard's artwork. After that, stunning discrepancies of opinion. The Opus had highly vocal detractors; they disliked the soft flex and forward mount. But it's champions ranked it among the best. (Six of 11 put it in their top five). It feels small at first, but skis big. It's nimble, but not at the expense of power. The tapered tip and tail keep things loose in deep snow, making it one of the more forgiving fatties. And there's always something to stand on underfoot. "Soft tip and rocker give it unsinkable float," said Larson. "Great powder ski for any ability." Notes: The Mr. Pollard's Opus is a wood-core, vertical-sidewall laminate construction with early rise in the tip (15 mm of rise over 25 cm), with tapered tip and tail-all contributing to its looseness in powder.
