2 Comments on the “Benny Wax”

  1. Hi Benny im a 60 year old and ski 30 days a year on Vail mountain, I am looking for something smooth that is really good around bumps and going at a controlled speed. Was looking at the Kanjo, Rossignol black ops smasher and Blizzard Brahma. Do you have any recommendations?

    1. Hi Inigo!
      I reached out to Benny, and he noted that the Kanjo was the best bump ski that he’s been on in quite a while. Good flex, easy to turn, and fun to control. The Brahma is on the stiff and heavy side while the Smasher is opposite. The Kanjo slides right in the middle and is a great ski. Have fun!
