A more versatile layup of Rossi’s newest flagship ski, the BlackOps Sender is rocket-ship-ready for any intermediate to advanced skier looking to up their game. Built with a full poplar wood core with fiberglass laminates, the BlackOps Sender is full of pop and is a quick and lively ride, perfectly suited to our testing grounds on Ajax Mountain. While there’s no metal in this version of the ski, our testers were pleasantly surprised with how hard they could push the Sender, and its round-yet-solid flex pattern gives a damp ride in variable snow. With extremely little tip and tail taper, the ski is lightning quick to initiate a turn, and the dependable tail will power you through to the finish without being too demanding.

FREESKIER tester thoughts:

“Versatile but no slouch. Great edge hold on hard pack for a ski that is as playful and easy as this one. Lots of pop with plenty of forgiveness.”

“I’d recommend this over the to all but the most charging skiers. It’s a super fun engaging ski all over the mountain. Not afraid to send, but fun at mellow afternoon mom laps too.”
