189 Seths vs 185 Scratch BC
With all the sales popping up due to end of season, I'm in the market for something a little fatter for trips west and the occasional EC "powder" day. Anyone ridden either or both of these that wants to weigh in? I'm 6'2" and about 185. Any info is appreciated.
the seth is sick. it feels a bit stronger than the bc, but it also feels a bit more lumbering and deliberate. the scratch bc is super light and really really maneuverable. if you are going to be charging it more, get the seth. if you're going to be playing around more in trees and jibbing whatnots, i'd say get the scratch bc.
IF you need a big boy ski.... check out the High Society FR187

I'm on the wrs Bc this year and it rips. super light. lots of fun. K2 skis seem durable but heavy and dead feeling, not lively.
the new THC (triple hybrid core) provides a very stable core for the new BC's. There is fiberglass/wood/carbon core which is unlike the seth's basic tecnology. I'm not saying the seth's arent SICK skis, but i really think the BC's have come through.

Not wearing poles is alot li
from what most people are saying seth's are a lil better in the BC this year then usual but have lost versatility, and the BC's are still the super versatile ski.. so it depends what you want, BC for versatility, for seth for BC shredding
