    Unsolicited positive feedback: I bought a pair of Nordica Burner Evos (170cm long x 84mm wide) via this StartHaus blemish sale last summer for $299 with bindings. I bought them as my daily driver/east coast/75% on-piste ski. This is billed as an intermediate level ski and I never demo'd them, but I found the purchase price made all that worth the risk. I probably bought them a little short/underpowered for optimal high speed groomer zooming, but surprisingly they proved to be the best skis I've had in a long time for the bumps. They are very turny and light as a feather compared to some of my older skis. They have a little bit of tip rise and are good in moderate amounts of new/loose snow. I have yet to figure out what was blemished about them. I'm tempted to buy a 100+mm ski via this year's blemish sale for use on trips out west and rare occasions when I get to an eastern hill before it's all groomed out.

    Nope. I resisted. It was very difficult at those prices.

    It was easy to resist considering the extensive revamp that the Nordica line will see next year.

    Ah, I was wondering if there was a major design change, hence why these were being dumped.

    Some for the worse. They are adding metal to the Hell and Back series.

    The Hell and Back series is being replaced by the new NRGy series. Their freeride (Soul Rider, Patron etc) series is getting long in the tooth and discounts have been widespread.

    Most of these prices are around 50% off MSRP which is relatively easy to find in the spring, especially considering it is a blem sale. I'm not overwhelmed.
