**Review courtesy of our sister publication SKI Magazine.** The Magnums have been consistent performers for Blizzard, and consistent tester favorites for smooth, sophisticated performance. Carve technicians love the slender, shapely 7.6, with its precise edginess and uninhibited flex. It' ll skid a turn if you insist, but what a waste of talent. Testers rated it No. 1 for Hard-Snow Grip for its solidity and edge-grip. Look elsewhere if you need a more forgiving ride or have a thing for speed. "Smooth and silky; just wants to carve," said Lewis. Sold with binding.
