Testers' Ratings

The 2019/2020 version of the Dobermann Spitfire TI is aimed at an audience of Class 2–3 who want to progress quickly in cut turns and in physical performance; it can also be enjoyed by skiers of higher classes looking for an easy and manoeuvrable ski for all turning arcs. Laura Jardi points out that this ski makes it possible to "slide for a wide range of levels and curves without losing stability at high speed". She adds that it also pivots easily at low speed. Its best performance concerns medium curves, which you could start without ever stopping: it doesn't get tired, is always precise, with an excellent edge grip, without being too impetuous and without having to use the tip too much. To use the words of Giovanni Manfrini: "it remains versatile and fun in all conditionsz, even at low speed". The main quality of this ski is that it pivots easily (Stefano Belingheri), even at different speeds (Riccardo Giacomel). In terms of downsides, you could say that its structure seems too rigid for the class it is aimed at. We recommend the Dobermann Spitfire TI FDT to skiers of Classes 3 and 4 who slide at a medium speed and do average curves, and who are looking for a ski to use all day long.
