Nordica Hot Rod Modified (2006)
The Modified felt so velvety and quiet that even the shortest test length earned high corduroy-carving points. Credit the traditional laminate construction and the X-Balance System, a binding and plate co-built with Marker that distributes pressure evenly throughout the ski.
Huge sweet spot. Damp, but not dead; quick, but not squirrelly.
A tad narrow for powder days, but so stable it
"Like a barracuda knifing through the surf."
