KD trick ski experience?

I'm in the market for a new trick ski. I could get a demo model KD 12k lion trick ski saving me $300 over a quantum or d3 aira, but I really don't know much about this ski or know anyone that tried it. So does anybody here has experience with the ski and can compare it to the d3/quantum?

    Plenty of top skiers using the KD trick

    Fyi. It is not available in 44" or larger.

    Definitely comparable to any of them
    Great in hands and toes
    Suits a wide level of skier
    You won’t be disappointed

    I certainly would not call myself a 'tricker' by any stretch of the imagination and mostly just do it for a bit of fun here and there. I have had a 12k for a few years after having had a quantum for a number of seasons prior to that. For me, the 12k is faster for surface turns, more responsive and overall more enjoyable to ride.

    All right, thanks everyone. I'll pick up the KD!

    My trick buddy rides the KD and I the Quantum.
    Our experience is that the Quantum is a bit calmer and the KD faster/easier in surface rotations.
    Just beginners 2 cents.

    This may seem way off topic (a comment from 2014 about the then-new Jobe trick ski).
    Except I'm pretty sure the Jobe trick = the KD trick (same mold, etc) and I'm not sure much has changed over the years.
