      Comments about O'Brien OBrien Impulse Slalom Ski with X-9 Adjustable Binding and Rear Toe Plate:

      Gift to granddaughters who loved the ski. Not only did they learn to ski on one but they leared to get up on one at the same time. Two of the four who tried then learned to step off the bank of a sand bar to start.

      Service was great. Telephoned order to be certain about foot binder size. Operator could not have been nicer or more helpful.

          My granddaughter has not had a chance to try the ski yet, but she has tried it on and is delighted to have it. As an eleven year old she is advancing quickly.

                I did not even get this ski out on the water because of how uncomfortable the rear toe plate is. I have a narrow size 7 foot, and both sides of my feet were up on the edges of the binding. I read the reviews, which led me to call customer service for advice. Though they were really nice, I did not receive adequate information on this ski.

                Comments about O'Brien OBrien Impulse Slalom Ski with X-9 Adjustable Binding and Rear Toe Plate:

                When I tried to put my rear foot into the rear toe plate I had to turn my foot sideways to get it in and then flatten it. It hurt my forefront bones on my foot so much I couldn't put a lot of pressure to cut hard. I don't have a wide foot or large foot. I returned the ski. Very disappointing as it is one of the few skis made specifically for women, has a great look, skied well, and has a great price point. However who wants to ski in pain?
