    I had a chance to run the Sniper Series on my 2020 SRX for a few weekends and I must say that I like the square edge much better then the standard double down. They seem to push less in the corners. Over all you just can't beat the build quality and longevity you get from the double downs but this new sniper series is a great improvement. I have to hand it to Dave, he keeps on making the product better and better.

    I agree, they bite amazing. I have about 1500 miles on a set on my winder. Seems like my standard double downs held up way better, but I like the bite of the sniper better

    Agreeed. 1000 miles on mine and zero complaints. Wife has 2800 miles on her double downs from last year and still sharp. I love the snipers so far and she will be switching to double downs for next season

    What lenth carbide did you run? I have been running the 6inch dooly's and its time for a new set. I have had good luck with the doolys but am willing to try something that bites a little harder. Do they increase steering effort?
    The pricing is much better than doolys too.

    I run 6inch. I tried 8 inch once and steering effort was a little much for my likes.
    Sniper double downs seem like a great mix of bite and easy steering.

    I run 8”. I don’t think the steering effort is any different.

    I put on a pair of 4" Sniper Double Downs on my Sidewinder running the Ice Storm 150 track with my Curve Skis. I've always run Dooley's with my Curves. I was very impressed with just the 4". I also have a set of 6" to try so I will try those out back-to-back one day, but so far I have 700 miles on the 4" Sniper Double Downs this year and really like the bite these provide with easy steering and just a completely stable front end! I honestly don't think 6" are even needed with just the Ice Storm track.
