Advanced+ level all-mountain skier Heyman's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
en-US - * - 2839
"A true all-mountain ski is as good off-piste as it is on-piste. Stiff enough to remain stable at top speed, flexible enough for comfort in poor circumstances. It is essential that the perfect all-mountain ski performs well in all conditions."
If you can't see where you're going and you don't know what the snowdeck lookes like, the Scott Reverse is the ski you want to be on. Whether it is carving on supersmooth groomers, ploughing through crud or chopped-up snow or skiing powder snow, the Scott Reverse performs adequately. And the amazing thing in bad visibility is that the Reverse seems to adjust to the circumstances all by itself. If you can't see, the Reverse "feels" its way around the mountain.
Bad weather ski
So the Scott Reverse performs well in bad weather. But what about good weather? That's when you reach the limit of this ski. Its performance in every kind of snow and terrain is equally good. But compromises are inevitable to such a versatile performance. And those compromises result in reachable limits equally spread over all its capabilities. That's what a good all-mountain performance is all about and therefore I reward the Reverse with a 4 star rating.
Scott about the Reverse
"The SCOTT Reverse is ideal for advanced skiers looking for a ski offering precise edge control and performance on groomers, while tackling mixed conditions. SCOTT’s proven Venturi construction and dual radius shape allows for versatility and a stable ride.", says Scott. I agree, the Reverse is solid in all condiitions and does not excel in any discipline.
Armada ARVti: is a little bit wider and performs better than the Scott Reverse in every aspect. Scott the Ski: is more playful than the Reverse but not as stable. Stöckli Stormrider VXL: an extremely stiff and stable all-mountain ski with Giant Slalom qualities.

"I like my ski to be comfortable and handling bumps and loose snow without effort. I don't go off-piste more than on the side of groomers. A typical all conditions on the piste skier with comfort and style as priorities."
The Scott Reverse is a true ‘Snow Utility Ski’. This ski is made for easy light and controlled skiing also on not perfectly groomed pistes. The Scott Reverse gives you continuous grip, so you can work the edges. Short parallel turning, carving, this ski does it all. Having said this, this ski is more suited for groomed slopes, but does also a good job on bumpy slopes. Overall this is a perfect ski for skiing any conditions on prepared slopes, therefore 4 stars.
Surprise of the week
You have probably experienced this while skiing. The day starts with perfectly groomed slopes, a bit hard, but smooth. During the day the pistes become softer and bumpier. These are the days that you should ski on a Scott Reverse. It will surprise you all day long! The Scott Reverse is a very stable ski, but still has a lot of playfulness. This is exactly what I like. On groomed slopes, you can work those edges very smoothly even at higher speed. The Scott Reverse has a wider radius which makes turning also light and easy on bumpy slopes, it guides you through these slopes. The Scott Reverse is suited for the more advanced and experience skiers. Even though this ski turns light and guides you home in every circumstance, you need to work this ski to really experience this ski.

This ski brings a lot of fun to the slopes.
