Penchant for powder.
Although it falls under Faction's all-mountain collection, the Prodigy 3.0 Ski certainly has a bias for powder days just like the rest of us. A 106mm waist makes it the widest option in the all-mountain collection, meaning it will surf through the soft stuff better than all the other options. Faction shaped it with a rockered tip so you can keep your tips up when things get deep, and the rockered tail helps you arc out of powdery face shots with a wicked rooster tail that will have all skiers at the resort screaming out of stoke.
That's not to say the Prodigdy doesn't live up to its all-mountain status; on the contrary, the Prodigy 3.0 is a solid plank for most conditions. It has enough camber underfoot to hold an edge when there isn't any soft snow in sight, and the dual sidecut initiates multiple turn radii so you can turn tight through icy sections or open up your turns when the snow is soft, plentiful, and begging for some speedy slashes.

all about looks
Got these for this coming winter, but they look so good, never dissapointe3d with factions top sheets
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These skis have been awesome so far. Hold up great on hardpack, not afraid to jump around and land in few day-old snow. Very surfy and playful in the pow as well.
