Philpug: The Deacon goes back to its roots à la the old 724 Pro and AC50. This is a no-compromise ski, very powerful and precise. Of all the skis offered in this category, the Deacon 84 is one of the strongest for sure. Where some of the 16m skis in this class can ski shorter, the Deacon 84 skis its full radius and is happy to stretch that out even more, making it the most GS-like in on-snow feel.

Insider tip: Note the 5cm increments; err on the shorter of two sizes.​

So many good frontside carvers here and so many potential cage matches... I went back to your review of the K2 Disruption 82ti where you said, “The 82Ti is the reference power ski in the frontside all-mountain category.” Wonder how these two stack up?
